There are only a few weeks remaining for residents to have their say on Sutton Council's borough-wide review of parking options.
The latest consultation closes later this month (Feb 24).
The parking strategy seeks to prioritise on-street parking for residents where possible, while taking into account demands on kerb space from future developments, commuter parking and safety and access for emergency and refuse collection vehicles.
The review, which is taking place across three geographical areas, is now at the next phase of consultation covering Geographical Area 2.
This consultation covers parts of Cheam, Belmont, Carshalton Central, Carshalton South and Clockhouse.
The new plans were developed following feedback in our initial consultation for Geographical Area 2, and we have now developed very specific parking proposals in a small number of locations.
Environment and Neighbourhood Committee Chair Councillor Manuel Abellan said:
“We have designed targeted schemes to address parking issues in key locations where parking pressures have been identified and we are now seeking feedback from residents at those locations about the proposed parking solutions.
“We have held a series of consultation events for residents giving residents the chance to ask questions and find out more about the proposals. What we want to ensure now is that residents complete the online survey so we can ensure we capture all their views and feedback about the proposals.”
The three main options proposed are:
Controlled Parking Zones: permit required
Belmont Road area
Belmont Hospital (BH CPZ extension).
Permit Parking Area: permit required
Talbot Road area
Gordon Road area
Anglesey Gardens area
Stanley Road area
Free Bay Scheme: no permit required
Double yellow lines have also been proposed at key locations to improve road safety and maintain access.
Residents are encouraged to complete the online survey by Monday, 24 February, 2020.
