Review Of Controversial CPZ In Grove Park
Council to carry out consultation on its effectiveness
Hounslow Council is to consult residents in an area of Grove Park on the effectiveness of the temporary controlled parking scheme.
A council spokesperson said: “The review of the Grove Park Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) will consult residents within the existing scheme, seeking their views on its effectiveness.
“Once the review has been completed, any proposals to amend the parking controls will be submitted to the Chiswick Area Forum for discussion.
“Any petitions from residents living outside the Grove Park CPZ will be reported to the Chiswick Area Forum for consideration.
“We will also consider any requests to mitigate the obstructive parking in Sutton Court Road.”
Several residents have complained recently about the difficulties of negotiating along Sutton Court Road due to parked vehicles on either side of the road. Some people have called for the introduction of double-yellow lines as they believe that the parking has been caused by displacement due to the nearby CPZ.
The controversial CPZ in Grove Park came into operation last December.
The decision to introduce a partial CPZ in Grove Park created division in the area between the local community. You can read some of the background here.
