Clapham South and Balham Controlled Parking Zone – Granard Road review

Closed 15 Jan 2023

Opened 28 Nov 2022

Overview

Following a consultation in 2020 with residents and businesses within the Clapham South and Balham H2 One-hour sub-zone, the Council’s Executive approved recommendations to extend the controlled hours in Hendrick Avenue and Morella Road to Monday-Friday, 9.30am-5.30pm. 

The revised operational arrangements in these two roads were introduced in April 2021 under the terms of an Experimental Traffic Management Order to provide a period of operational experience. It is proposed that the change to the operational hours in Hendrick Avenue and Morella Road be made permanent.  

We are now seeking your views about whether the parking controls in Granard Road should be changed so that they operate 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday, the same as in Hendrick Avenue and Morella Road.

  • Parking bays would be redesignated from ‘H2 Permit Holder Only’ to ‘Shared Use meaning that both permit holders and visitors using the RingGo pay-by-mobile solution (4-hour maximum stay) would be entitled to park.
  • Single yellow line waiting restrictions would also operate during the extended hours.
  • Increasing the hours of control to ‘All-day’ will not affect the cost of, or require you to obtain a new, resident (or business) parking permit.
  • Your visitors would be required to display an All-day Zone resident visitor permit or to make payment using the Council’s RingGo pay-by-phone solution when parking during the extended operational hours.
  • If the parking controls were to be changed to All-day, existing One-hour Zone resident visitor permits and paperless visitor permits (PVP) would not be valid in Granard Road.  However, up to 5 unused ‘paid for’ H2 One-hour Zone resident visitor permits per household would be exchanged for All-day Zone visitor permits or PVPs.
  • The Council will not exchange ‘Free’ One-hour Zone resident visitor permits.  These would remain valid in any ‘One-Hour Zone’ where the controls operate for one hour each day.  

The current charges for resident visitor permits and PVPs are available on the Council’s website here

Have your say

Please give us your views by completing the online survey below.

If you would like a paper copy of the questionnaire, please call 020 8871 8929 leaving your name and address including the postcode and quoting ‘H2 Granard’ and one will be posted out to you with a postage paid return envelope.

Please ensure we have received your response by Sunday 15 January 2023.

Should you wish to make any additional comments these can be sent by e-mail to H2Review@wandsworth.gov.uk, please use ’H2 Granard’ as the subject.

The Council would like to demonstrate that any change to the parking controls in Granard Road has the support of residents of the road and residents of the adjacent properties on Bolingbroke Grove, so a good response is important.  Please respond to all questions even if you don’t own a vehicle, and/or oppose any change to the operational hour, because parking controls may still affect you or your visitors.

What happens next?

The results will be analysed, and a report presented to a future meeting of the Transport Committee.  The final decision will not be based on residents’ views alone.  All feedback will be considered along with relevant traffic management and other highway factors, prior to a decision being made on the way forward.

We will write to you once the Council has made a decision and an update will be provided on the Council’s website here
