In March /April 2017 there was a consultation on the possibility of a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) that would extend onto Trinity Rise, Brockwell Park Gardens and the section of Norwood Rd between Rosendale rd and Trinity Rise. It was suggested that the existing Tulse Hill ‘H’ CPZ be extended with bays and single yellow lines operating Mondays to Fridays between 12pm and 2pm.
The outcome of the consultation can be found here – https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/sites/default/files/17-07-12%20ODDR%20SIGNED%20-%20Proposed%20Brixton%20Hill%20Area%20CPZ-%20Statutory%20Cons%20Results.pdf
Implementation of the works programme will begin on Monday 07 August and take place for 4-6 weeks.
Warning Notices will be put in place in the area to notify all road users when the zone becomes operational, which is envisaged to be 2 October 2017, though this is subject to change.

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.
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.
Below is an update from Cabinet lead Cllr Jennifer Braithwaite –
Our current parking options need addressing. This is in terms of CPZs and in terms of our database of parking options. We have received countless representations over the years from residents, businesses and councillors from all over the borough.
In order to properly implement CPZs, we need to understand and evaluate parking stress across the whole borough and to understand the likely impact of any new CPZs in non-CPZ areas.
I am now doing something about this difficult situation. We have been allocated £600,000 from the council’s capital reserve “to carry out a study of controls and operations in existing CPZs and to carry out a parking survey in the rest of the borough” – this is not money to be used to implement CPZs.
– We will look at all current CPZs to make sure they are legally sound and working properly
– We will record this information to enable the production of a digitised map of all CPZ parking controls in the borough
– We will look at parking stress in all other parts of the borough to complete a full database of parking information
The study will take 12 months, starting in September and reporting in October 2016. The information collected will then be used to prioritise and properly plan any future CPZ consultation.
