Parking, Harpenden Road & new  Zebra crossing proposal

Lambeth Council have issued a notice about proposals to ban vehicles proceeding in Norwood Road (with the exception of cyclists) from entering Harpenden Road, ban vehicles (all vehicles) exiting Harpenden Road from turning right into Norwood Road, make changes to the existing residents’ and shared use parking places in Harpenden Road and impose at any time waiting restrictions (double yellow lines) at those locations instead. 

The notice also looks to re-define the existing free limited time parking places so they better reflect the situation on the ground, install a new entry treatment (road hump) in Harpenden Road at its junction with Norwood Road and provide a new zebra pedestrian crossing in Norwood Road by Harpenden Road. 

The general effect of the Orders would be:–

(a)​ to remove a length of shared use parking place outside Nos.  1 to 7 Harpenden Road and reduce a length of shared use parking place in Harpenden Road at the side of Nos. 248/250 Norwood Road and impose at “any time” waiting restrictions (double yellow lines) instead;

(b)​ ban vehicles proceeding in Harpenden Road from turning right into Norwood Road;

©​ ban vehicles proceeding in Norwood Road from entering Harpenden Road (except pedal cycles);

(d)​ impose a compulsory left turn from Harpenden Road into Norwood Road; 

(e) redefine the length of certain existing Free Limited Time parking places in Harpenden Road so that they better reflect the situation on the ground (there will be no change to the terms and conditions of use).

All objections and other representations relating to the proposed Orders, cycle tracks or pedestrian crossings must be made in writing and all objections must specify the grounds on which they are made and should be sent to Barbara Poulter, Highways and Enforcement Group, Lambeth Council, 5th Floor, Blue Star House, 234-244 Stockwell Road, London SW9 9SP, by 5th January 2018.
