Money will be set aside to consult some residents
The results of the re-consultation that three Liberal Democrat councillors in the Southfield Road area persuaded Ealing Council to conduct were discussed at a recent meeting of the Southfield Forum.
Councillor Gary Malcolm said that in the past couple of years a couple of parking and CPZ issues have arrisen and they had looked to see what could be done to improve things. The following is what was agreed:
Zone R (Southfield CPZ) - based in the North-eastern side of the ward
- Retain the CPZ for the same days of operation
- Change the hours of operation to one hour in the morning and one in the afternoon so that more visitors can stay without having to buy visitors vouchers (that are very expensive)
- Investigate the conditions of use of the stop and shop bays to see if changes might be made to promote more use of the shopping parades in the area
- The Eastern section of Southfield Road, which is often not frequently used, will become duel zoned which will mean that it can also be used by those in zone B (Whellock Road for example)
Zone B (Bedford Park CPZ)
No changes were agreed to this zone so the days of operation and times of day will be retained A decision was taken not to move Montgomery from zone B to zone M.
Zone M (Acton Green CPZ)
For the zones where changes will be made it agreed to monitor the changes in about 6 months time from when the changes occur, to monitor whether the changes have had a positive effect.
No changes will be made so the days of operation and times of day will be retained
. Investigate the conditions of use of the stop and shop bays to see if changes might be made to promote more use of the shopping parades in the area
The details of when changes will take place is not known yet as it usually takes a couple of months for the legal changes to be made.
Note in addition to this we also agreed to spend £500 so that the residents of Dordrecht Road and Valetta Road can be consulted at some CPZ changes that were made about 2 years ago. Your Liberal Democrat Councillors have been in liaison with the three East Acton Councillors as part of the CPZ is also in East Acton and they are happy also for a consultation to occur. A detailed list of other items we agreed money to be spent on is in this blog post:
Southfield Councillor Gary Malcolm said: "Over the past couple of years many residents have spoken up about the CPZs in their area. We have ensured that Ealing Council conducted consultation and we hope the recommendations will make the CPZs either cheaper for residents and easier for people to park or have friends or carers visit them."
