Grove Park CPZ Gets Councillor's Go-Ahead
Cllr Ed Mayne takes the decision to set the process in motion
The controversial CPZ for part of Grove Park has been given approval by Councillor Ed Mayne as expected.
Councillor Mayne, who is cabinet member for community safety and regulatory services, in a Single Member decision on Friday (April 26), approved the scheme.
Council officials will now set the process in motion for the partial CPZ for the area which will be referred to as Zone GP.
The cost is put at £35,000 including changing road markings and signage. A Transport for London (TfL) allocation of funds for CPZs can be used.
The CPZ will introduce limited parking restrictions (2 hours a weekday between 10-12 am) in Park Road and Staveley Road east. It will be for a trial period of six months.
A Hounslow Council spokesperson said: "With the increase in London's population and car ownership, controlled parking zones CPZs have been found to be the most effective way of preserving parking spaces for residents.
"The council undertook a consultation prior to the decision to proceed with this CPZ and a majority of respondents from Park Road and Staveley Road were in favour."
The matter is the subject of ongoing controversy in the Grove Park area.
