East Twickenham Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ)

Closed 13 Sep 2019

Opened 4 Jul 2019

Overview

The Council is carrying out a consultation as part of a review of the East Twickenham Controlled Parking Zone, Zone F.  This consultation is being undertaken primarily following the granting of planning permission of the Old Ryde House site in Richmond Road comprising the construction of a new Lidl Store and school.

Whilst occupiers or persons associated with this development will not be eligible for parking permits, it is appreciated that such developments can have a negative impact on the surrounding areas, for instance increasing the demand for parent/shopper parking. Funding has therefore been secured from the developer to carry out this review.

The current operational days/hours are Monday to Friday, 10am to 4.30pm.  The review will look at how the zone should work to ensure that it continues to provide parking for the community once the development has been completed and is fully occupied. Given the increase in parking demand that could be generated by the new development, particularly outside these hours, we are seeking feedback on what days/hours the CPZ should operate in the future, including the option of extending it into the evenings and/or weekends. Extending the operational hours would provide a higher level of parking protection for the local community.

We would also like to hear any other views you may have on how the CPZ can be improved in terms of efficiency. We are also consulting residents of Beresford Avenue and the adjacent uncontrolled section of Park Road to see if they would wish to join the zone.

Permit costs

Any change to the existing operational days/hours of the CPZ could affect the cost of your permit. The table below indicates current annual resident and business permit costs and how these could change if the CPZ operational days/hours were to be amended.

NB The following arrangements would not result in in any increases in permit prices:

  • Increasing the operational days to include Saturdays and/or Sundays but retaining the existing hours (10am to 4.30pm)
  • Increasing the operational hours to 8.30am-6.30pm but retaining the days Monday-Friday or increasing them to Monday-Saturday

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

Resident visitor permits (scratchcards) cost £13.85 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 all day in a zone that operates for four hours. Two resident visitor permits correctly validated allow parking all day in a zone that operates for longer than four hours.

Have your say

Please give us your views by completing the online survey below. If you need a paper copy please call 020 8891 1411 and ask for the project officer Tim Shishodia or email consultation@richmond.gov.uk

Please note that the responses will be analysed over the whole area as well as on a street by street basis, meaning that changes could be introduced over the whole area if widely supported, or in some streets and not others, if appropriate. The Council would like to demonstrate that any changes have the support of local residents, so a good response is very important.  All feedback to this consultation will be considered by the Council along with all relevant traffic management and other highway factors, prior to a decision being made on the way forward.
