Second Cross Road Area Parking Consultation 2

Closed 15 Nov 2019

Opened 30 Oct 2019


Thank you to all those who provided feedback to the preliminary design of the CPZ for Chestnut Road, Second Cross Road and Third Cross Road.

As you will recall, the majority of respondents to the original consultation, carried out in February / March 2019, supported the extension of Zone Z5 to this area (89 out of 155 respondents - 57%).  However, following completion of the initial design for this scheme, in June 2019 it was proposed to revise the controls with Chestnut Road and Second Cross Road becoming part of Zone WT and Third Cross Road part of Zone SH. The Council received a high level of feedback to these revised proposals, including e-mails and petitions followed by the well-attended public meeting and “Drop In” session at the Crane Community Centre.

Having considered all of the various views received, it is understood by officers that a CPZ in principle remains supported by the majority of respondents but that there are concerns on how such a scheme would work.  The main areas of concern have been the new lengths of double yellow lines in Chestnut Road and Third Cross Road and whether the proposed zonal arrangements would provide sufficient overflow options for residents.

More information on the consultation and feedback received can be viewed on the Council’s website here.

New set of revised proposals

Officers have considered all feedback received from residents on this matter.  Whilst the scope for alternative options is limited by regulations and the narrow roads and footways in the area, officers have nonetheless produced a final design and a new set of proposals. Although we are obliged to introduce the double yellow lines in Third Cross Road and Chestnut Road to improve pedestrian safety and maintain access for public and emergency service vehicles, we have managed to create an additional eight spaces in Chestnut Road and an additional four in Hampton Road. 

The final design is available to view on the council’s website here. To arrange to view paper copies, please contact us on 020 8891 1411.

New consultation on zonal arrangements

Given the range of preferences expressed by residents regarding the most appropriate zonal arrangements for their roads, and that many felt the Council’s revised preliminary design was a departure from what had been approved following the first consultation, we would like to consult you again on the options detailed in the table below. (The prices are for the 1st permit per household/business for one year. Subsequent applications per household are 50% higher).

£86.65 (SH &WT)


Depends on zone


Explanatory notes:

Option 1: In light of feedback received during the drop-in session, and the most popular preferences for operational times/days expressed during the initial consultation, we have added an option of a ‘buffer zone’.  This will mean Second Cross Road, Third Cross Road and Chestnut Road will be zoned for both Zones WT and SH, to operate Monday to Saturday 8.30am to 6.30pm, with resident and business permits entitling holders to park in both of these zones.

Options 2-4: The buffer zone does not apply to these options. Your permit would only  entitle you to park in the zone agreed for your road.

Option 5: You can choose your own zone or drop the CPZ under option 5. You should be aware that, should the CPZ not proceed, the yellow lines in Chestnut Road and Third Cross would still need to be implemented.
