Minutes:

The Traffic Management Advisory Committee considered the objections received from the public following the formal consultation process on a proposal to extend the existing Croydon Controlled Parking Zone (N1 Permit Areas) to Atlee Close, Kynaston Avenue, Kynaston Crescent, Kynaston Road (SE of Swain Road), Palmerston Road, Pitt Road and Sandringham Road with a combination of shared-use (permit/pay-byphone) bays and single yellow lines operating 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.

 

The Parking Design Manager explained that the report had originally been presented to the Committee on 16 October 2019; however, some of the received objections had not been included in the report. The additional eight objections were outlined in the report but the officers’ recommendation were still to approve the introduction of the CPZ.

 

Ms Saunders addressed the Committee in her capacity as a local resident of Palmerstone Road and explained that there current issues with the parking in the local area were making life for residents particularly hard; there were commercial vehicles parked in the residential roads and left for long periods of time, and car dealers were using the free parking to store their vehicles. She expressed the importance of introducing a CPZ as soon as possible as residents were choosing to not leave their houses in case they lost their parking spaces.

 

Mr Brown addressed the Committee in his capacity as a local resident of Sandringham Road and explained that he had to park a great distance from his property on multiple occasions due to the commercial vehicles parking in the area. He read a statement from a local resident, who was unable to attend the Committee, which highlighted the importance of introducing a CPZ in the area; people were using the residential streets as a car park and local residents felt like prisoners in their own homes.

 

In response to the comments made by the public speakers the Parking Design Manager explained that those who lived in the local area could apply for permits and these would be limited to two per household. In his previous experience, introducing a CPZ would ease up the parking considerably and he predicted it would improve the area considerably.

 

In response to Councillor Ali it was noted that the objectors were wrote to in December 2019 to state the Committee date and outline the protocol for speaking at the meeting; there had been no correspondence from them regarding addressing the Committee.

 

In response to Councillor Mohan it was explained that the introduction of a CPZ could cause displacement of parking in surrounding areas, meaning petitions and requests from residents in these areas for the extension of the CPZ could be received.

 

The Chair explained to the Committee that the report was being brought back to the Traffic Management Advisory Committee for consideration as the objections were not included in the original report, and it was not because the officers had changed their recommendations for approval. He noted that in his opinion the new objections did not raise new concerns  ...  view the full minutes text for item 4/20
