Objections must relate only to the elements of the scheme that are subject to this statutory consultation. All representations along with Officers’ comments and recommendations will be presented in a final report to be considered by the Council. This report will set out whether the Council will introduce a CPZ in the area, and if so, which roads will be subject to such controls. The Council is required to give weight to the nature and content of your representations and not necessarily the quantity. Your reasons are, therefore, important to us.

Informal Consultation, 22 September – 20 October 2016

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.
