Street parking conversion on Station Rise

Lambeth Council will converge existing on street parking places in Station Rise to a disabled parking place, a loading parking place, a limited free time parking place and the removal of other existing on street parking places.

1.​NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Council of the London Borough of Lambeth (“the Council”) on 19th July 2017 made the Lambeth (Tulse Hill) (Parking Places) (No. 1) Order 2017, the Lambeth (Free Parking Places) (Disabled Persons) (No. 3) Order 2017, the Lambeth (Free Parking Places) (Limited Time) (No. 3) Order 2017, the Lambeth (Loading Places) (No. 3) Order 2017 and the Lambeth (Waiting and Loading Restriction) (Amendment No. 263) Order 2017 under sections 6, 45, 46, 49 and 124 of and Part IV of Schedule 9 to the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, as amended.  The Orders will come into force on 22nd July 2017.

2.​The general effect of the Orders will be to:-

(a) revoke an existing shared-use residents’/pay and display parking space on the south side of Station Rise, so as to provide:-
a. a new disabled persons’ parking place outside No. 11 Station Rise; and
b. a new shared-use loading place and limited free time parking place outside No. 12 Station Rise and at the side of No. 367 Norwood Road;

Disabled Parking Bays update

A recent public notice which appeared in the edition of The Lambeth Weekender dated 15th March 2017, provided the public with an update about disabled parking bays in the borough. 

As a result of this, we have been informed that Thurlow Park ward has seen new disabled bays added to Robson Rd, Thurlow Hill and Trinity Rise, while also seeing one disable bay being removed from Romola Rd.

If you have any enquiries about the above, please telephone Lambeth Council’s Highways Group on 020 7926 9318 or email: highways@lambeth.gov.uk

During Full Council in May Cllr Max Deckers Dowber handed in a petition regarding parking and controlled parking zones.

Working with residents about their parking concerns has mainly centered on controlled parking zones and disabled parking bays, and as local cllrs Anna, Max and Fred have consistently pushed for the parking review to take place in order for any areas of stress to be identified and resolved. 

As an update we had further conversations with the Cabinet lead for the parking review, Cllr. Braithwaite, and we’ve also engaged in the Equality Streets Scrutiny Comission which has looked at the impact of parking on the local community. 

We will continue to work with residents, Cllrs and officers in order to find better parking solutions, and will provide further information as and when it comes to us. If you have any questions or concerns about parking on your street please do contact us. 

Update on Lambeth Parking Review

Cabinet lead, Cllr Jennifer Brathwaite has provided the below update; 

The Lambeth Parking Study has been underway since summer 2015 and is now ahead of schedule, with good progress made on improving the parking situation for many Lambeth residents who are currently most affected by parking stress.
The study’s work programme has been shaped by feedback from both residents and councillors who have been influential in deciding the priority areas.

The first phase of the Parking Study, focusing on the non CPZ area of Vassall / Coldharbour and the southern part of Brixton Hill, has now been completed.

Proposed CPZs for both areas have been designed and costed by engineers and an application for funding is now underway.  That funding should be in place by late summer and we plan to consult with all residents in the affected areas in September; the outcome of that consultation will help inform the decision on whether to proceed or not.

Some concerns were raised about the timetable for this phase, which was initially estimated to take 18 months to 2 years. However, I’m pleased to let you know that we have managed to significantly reduce this. If everything goes to plan consultation and implementation will take around 12 months, meaning the CPZ could be operational by July 2017. This is a best case scenario but we will work hard to make it happen.

The second phase of the study is now underway, focusing a review of the parking situation in existing CPZs and many of the non-CPZ areas of the borough. Officers are due to report back on the findings in October.
