Charting the history of the Streatham area parking survey.

Officer Delegated Decision Report, 16 July 2019

What is the result of the Streatham Area residents parking survey?

The results of the survey were collated and presented along with officer recommendations in a report for a decision to be taken.

A decision has now been taken to undertake Stage 1 CPZ consultation in two phases across two of the three wards surveyed:

  • Phase 1: St Leonard’s and part of Streatham South in the vicinity of Streatham Common Station

  • Phase 2: the remainder of Streatham South

You can take a look at the report, which details the survey results and final decision below.

Parking Survey Closed, 12 March 2018

What happens next?

Views collected during the survey is currently being analysed. The analyses along with officers’ comments and recommendations will be presented in a report for consideration. This report will set out whether we will undertake a controlled parking zone (CPZ) consultation in the area, and if so, which roads will be subject to such controls.

Parking Survey, 12 February – 12 March 2018

What is the problem?

Local residents have told us repeatedly about parking problems in the Streatham area. Generally, residents feel the problem is being caused by commuters who park and complete their journey by public transport or those working in nearby businesses.

What are the plans?

A public survey has been developed in order to seek the views of residents and local businesses to consider the introduction of controlled parking measures across the wards of Streatham Wells, St. Leonard’s and Streatham South. Check out the Proposed parking controls - Streatham area survey leaflet for more information.

For pricing information check out the Lambeth Parking Permit Pricing Structure.

Were parking stress surveys conducted?

Parking stress surveys were conducted in the Streatham area that provide a representation of parking on a typical weekday and a Saturday in the areas. The results of the parking stress surveys are discussed in the following comprehensive reports;

How can I give my views?

Please note, the parking survey closed on 12 March 2018.

The decision on how to proceed will be based on the responses received from this survey.

We know that CPZs can be a contentious issue, the main reason being that residents are generally required to purchase a permit in order to park in a CPZ.

We are aware that many of the roads south of the borough are affected by parking congestion, but many residents may choose to continue with their current parking situation rather than pay for a permit. Therefore, we would like to see how much support there is for controls in the area before allocating the funding and resource to undertake the full CPZ consultation process.

What happens next?

The results of the survey will be analysed and discussed with all the relevant ward councillors to develop a strategic parking programme. A report analysing the results of the survey and officers’ recommendations will be presented in a report to the Cabinet Member for Housing & Environment. Once a decision is made all consultees will be informed accordingly.
