The planned introduction of controlled parking in the Riverside ward, involving roads in the Strand on the Green area, is progressing, as Hounslow Council move to formal statutory consultation.

Along with a morning CPZ, it has been decided that a two-hour period in the evenings be introduced, to deter parking from non-residents on match days when the new Brentford stadium in Lionel Road is opened. Locals also want to deter parking from contractors during the building phase.

The proposed new CPZ will be operational Monday to Friday 10am-12 Noon and 6-8pm for all roads within Area 1 (Geraldine Road, Hearne Road, Meade Close, Oliver Close, Pyrmont Road, Spring Grove, Strand on the Green (Nos. 20-72 evens and Nos. 21-109 odds only), Thames Road (Nos. 24-140 evens and Nos. 1-59 odds) and Waldeck Road).

As it is unlikely that the Football Club will be in situ before the start of the 2018-19 season, it has been deemed unnecessary to promote Saturday operational hours at this time.

Residents will shortly receive confirmation of the consultation.

Following consultations in Riverside ward, Hounslow Council last year decided to add more streets to the area of controlled parking in Grove Park.

The proposed large developments near Chiswick, including the Lionel Road football stadium in Brentford had led to more residents in Grove Park asking for controlled parking to be considered.

Despite deciding some years ago to reject controlled parking for Grove Park as a whole, it now looks as if much of the area is likely to get a parking scheme over the next few years as more streets 'opt in' because of parking 'creep'. However, there still remain many residents in the area who are opposed to a CPZ and it has proved to be a divisive issue.
