Informal Consultation (22 Sep 2016 - 20 Oct 2016)
Update: Extended to 10 Nov
Properties below the railway arches in the Vassall consultation area did not receive the consultation material. The newsletters have now been sent out to these properties and the consultation is being extended to afford these properties the same 4 week consultation period as the other consultees. The consultation will close on 10 November 2016.
We’d like to hear your thoughts on the proposal to put in a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) in the Vassall area.
What is the problem?
We’ve recently received many letters, e-mails and enquiries from local residents and businesses in your neighbourhood raising concerns about parking problems. The main issues mentioned are based on:
- People who commute into the area to continue their journey to work using the good transport links in Lambeth.
- Residents and staff from local businesses in nearby streets where there are parking controls are parking here instead to avoid paying for parking.
What can be done?
Having listened to the concerns raised, we’d like to propose making your road a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ). We’ve prepared a survey that you can complete if you’re a resident or business in the area to give us feedback on what kind of parking controls you would like to see implemented, if any at all.
How can I contribute to the discussion?
You’ll be able to have a look at details of the proposal via the links on this page, as well as access the survey so that you can have your say on these proposals. Please be advised, you’ll need to provide the unique reference number that will be on the address label of the envelope we sent out (it’s the code which looks like ‘URN-BH123456’) when you’re answering the survey.
What will happen next?
We’ll need your answers by the 20th October, and we’ll use your feedback to decide what the next steps will be for your neighbourhood
What are the plans?
You can take a look at the details of the proposals for your area as well as view them on map one and map two

Please note that we will be hosting a drop in session on Saturday 8 October from 10am to 4pm at Minet Library, 52 Knatchbull Road, London, SE5 9QY to discuss people’s views, any issues raised, suggested solutions and what people want for their road. Details of this event are shown in the attachments below, along with other key information about CPZs that you might find useful.
Were parking surveys conducted?
