Overview

In February 2019, the Council implemented the Strawberry Hill Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ), Zone SH, operating 10am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday, following consultation with residents and businesses in the area.

You may be aware that the Council conducted a consultation in January as part of a review of this CPZ to assess its effectiveness during its initial period of operation.   Some residents have contacted the Council to say they did not receive the consultation documents.  Our investigations suggest that an issue occurred with the delivery undertaken by Royal Mail so we are therefore re-launching this consultation. If you previously received the documents and completed the questionnaire/online survey, it would be appreciated if you could please complete it again. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

This review will consider all comments received since the CPZ’s implementation and the feedback received from this consultation. As part of this review, the Council will also be considering other improvements to the CPZ to include access to local amenities and a possible review of zone boundaries.

The consultation seeks feedback from residents and businesses within the CPZ on its operation including whether the existing operational days/hours should be retained, reduced or extended.

Please be informed that a number of other parking consultations in the Strawberry Hill / Teddington areas were carried out earlier this year.  These comprised the review of existing CPZs and seeking views on introducing new parking controls – see plan here.  The results of these consultations are currently being analysed.

The current parking permit costs and options for operational times are below.  The prices are for the 1st permit per household/business for one year.  An increased rate applies to subsequent applications. Some properties may be subject to a S106 Planning Agreement which restricts or prohibits the issue of permits.

Resident visitor permits

Resident visitor permits (scratchcards) currently cost £14.55 per book of ten half day permits.  These are half price to the over 60s. The permit must be validated for the relevant time period.  One permit, correctly validated, would be required for one full day’s parking in a CPZ that operates for two to four hours. Two permits would be required for zones operating for more than four hours a day, as per the present arrangements in Zone SH.

What happens next

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.  The Council would like any changes to a CPZ to have the support of local residents, so a good response is very important.
