For details on the proposals please visit, www.lambeth.gov.uk/bhcpz

The majority of the onsite lining and signing works are complete, bar a few issues that are currently being tidied up. Due to the large nature of the CPZ there may be some other issues that come to light in the early phase of the implementation so please keep us posted and we’ll pass on all relevant information so any teething concerns can be resolved accordingly.

Lambeth are also introducing a new permitting system, which will be issuing virtual permits. If you have questions about these please go to; https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/parking-transport-and-streets/parking/electronic-parking-permits-guide

Proposed Controlled Parking Zone – extension H /Tulse Hill

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

16/00614/FUL – Installation of a roof top telecommunications base station and ancillary development

Residents on Trinity Rise, working in collaboration with your local cllrs, have successfully objected to the installation of a mobile phone mast on their street. 

Their opposition was based on a number of factors including possible health risks, the negative impact upon the areas conservation status and that the proposal would negatively impact on the skyline view from the park as it would change very much for the worse. 

Residents were also frustrated as it appeared that Metropolitan were intending going back on an agreement made in 2007 which said they would not install such a mast in Trinity – something which they have now given further assurances over and commitment to. 

One resident said that this issue “demonstrates very well how having the collective power of our association has helped us to win this campaign”. Something that we as local cllrs could not agree with more.
