Late February this year, residents of Roxborough Avenue handed me a petition seeking parking controls in their neighbourhood. This was passed to Hounslow Council’s Traffic Team.
The petition was prompted by the extension of the Syon Lane Station CPZ in January 2017, displacing parking by station users and employees from local companies to roads on the rest of the Northumberland Estate, reducing daytime parking availability for residents.
Since then, meetings and discussions have taken place with officers and it has been agreed that there should be an informal consultation on the extent of a demand for a parking scheme beyond those signing the petition.
Households west of Quakers Lane in, Northumberland Avenue, Roxborough Avenue, Harewood Road, Albury Avenue, Campion Road, Parkwood Road, Downs View and Wood Lane will receive a letter from Hounslow Council to explain how controlled parking zones work and a questionnaire to gauge interest.
The letters should be distributed from Friday 7 July 2017 with a closing date for responses either by post or online of 4 August 2017.
After the closing date and analysis of the results of the consultation, residents will be notified of the results of the consultation and any future action. Should these show a demand, a detailed CPZ scheme will be designed and the council will consult on this again prior to its introduction.
As always, am happy to correspond on this and other ward matters.
