Putney Heath Area Parking Consultation

Closes 6 Aug 2021

Opened 29 Jun 2021

Overview

A petition was received in December 2020 from residents in the Putney Heath area asking the Council to introduce a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) in order to improve the parking conditions in the area.

The aim of a CPZ is to prioritise parking for residents and businesses by deterring commuter and other long-stay parking by non-residents, who are currently able to park for free and without time limit. It can help tackle problems with obstructed driveways / sightlines, congestion and make more space available for residents’ vehicles and those of their visitors.  

We are now carrying out a consultation with all residents and businesses in the Putney Heath area so your views can be considered as we assess the extent of the problems that residents are experiencing, the merits of introducing a CPZ and how it should operate, including the hours/days of operation.

A CPZ can only be introduced on Highway maintained at public expense. The highway roads in the area are Bowling Green Close, Heathview Gardens, Portsmouth Road, Telegraph Road and Wildcroft Road. 

Information here explains the options open to you, how CPZs work and the current costs involved. Please read this information carefully before responding. More information on CPZs, including all current parking charges, can be found on the Council’s website here.

How to respond

Please give us your views by completing the survey below. 

Only one response from each household / business address is required. If your household is unable to complete the survey online and you would like a paper copy of the questionnaire or another format, please email HeathCPZ@richmondandwandsworth.gov.uk or call (020) 8871 8929 leaving your name and address including postcode and quoting reference ‘Putney Heath CPZ’ and one will be posted out to you with a postage paid return envelope.

Should you wish to make any additional comments, these can be sent by using the contact details above. Please use ‘Putney Heath CPZ’ as the subject. All comments will be considered but it will not be possible to respond to individual e-mails/comments.

The Council would like to demonstrate that any measures have the support of the local community so a good response is important. Please respond to all questions even if you don’t own a vehicle, and/or oppose a CPZ, because parking controls may still affect you or your visitors.

What happens next?

The results will be analysed for the whole area and on a street by street basis meaning that changes could be made in some roads and not others if appropriate and could either form a new CPZ or an extension to an existing one. 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 Parking Reviews webpage here.
