Overview

The Council is undertaking a consultation in the Strawberry Hill area as part of a review of parking in the locality.

This “1st Stage” consultation follows consideration of comments received by the Council from residents concerning the difficulties they face in finding a parking space near their home. It is understood that these difficulties are primarily caused by non-residents parking their vehicles (e.g. all day commuters and students attending St Mary's University).

The consultation also takes into account the decision by the Council’s Planning Committee to approve the new Sports Hall in 2008 at the University which reduced the number of parking spaces within the complex. Funding has been provided by the University in accordance with this decision to undertake this study and implement a Community Parking Zone (CPZ) if agreed.

In addition to reviewing parking in the Strawberry Hill area, a number of roads in the Fulwell and Teddington areas are included in the study.

We are seeking feedback from residents and businesses in the area within the blue boundary as shown on the map attached below as to whether a CPZ should be implemented; and if so, what days and hours it should operate.

In order to satisfy the criteria for introducing a CPZ, consultation results must show that over 50% of the total households in an area within the consultation boundary are in favour. If the results of this consultation show sufficient support for a CPZ the Council will proceed to a “2nd” Stage consultation seeking feedback on specific proposals for a new CPZ in the area.

If a CPZ is introduced in this area, residents, their visitors and businesses wishing to park on street will be required to purchase and display a valid parking permit. The costs of these permits are dependent on the hours of operation and the current costs are:

Resident permits                             

 

2 or 4 hour CPZ

6.5 – 10 hour CPZ

10 hours or longer CPZ, 7 days a week

e.g. Mon-Sat 10am to 4.30pm or Mon-Sat 8.30am to 6.30pm

Subsequent permits purchased per household / business per year are approximately 50% more for the 2nd permit issued and approximately 50% more again for 3rd and subsequent permits issued per household / business.

Resident visitor permits (scratchcards) cost £13.20 per book of ten permits. These are half price to the over 60s. The permit must be validated for the relevant time period.

One resident visitor permit, correctly validated, allows parking for all day in a zone that operates for two or four hours. Two resident visitor permits correctly validated allow parking all day in a zone that operates for longer than four hours.
