Hounslow Council is planning to introduce a controlled parking zone in Grove Park in residential streets around Chiswick overground rail station in a zone called 'Chiswick Station'.It is one of the last areas of Grove Park to be considered for controlled parking, apart from the parade of shops opposite Station House pub.

The Council issued a design consultation last November/December for the area, which produced a considerably lower than anticipated response rate. A total 106 of the 886 properties responded to the consultation. Of the 106 responses, 64 were in favour of being included in a CPZ and 42 were not.

The Council said that while on most occasions, where the response rate was significantly low, it would generally withdraw the scheme proposals, in this case, because the Grove Park Extension and Riverview area CPZs were being progressed to the next stage, this could result in significant displaced parking occurring in the Chiswick Station area and therefore it would proceed with the next stage relating to this zone.

The streets involved are Bolton Road, Cavendish Road, Coniston Close, Devonshire Gardens, Grove Park Road (part), Hartington Road, (southern section), The Lindens, Kinnaird Avenue, Spencer Road, Station Approach Road, and Station Gardens.

The next step is for a formal statutory consultation starting 26 April (deadline 17 May) with the CPZ operational times proposed as Monday-Friday, 10am-12noon.

Some alterations have been made to the design proposed last year, including removal of the proposed shared-use parking bays outside St Paul's Church, which is now proposed for single yellow lines. On Cavendish Road, there will be a partial removal of the shared-bay bays on the south-east side of the road to ensure adequate passing spaces, particularly for larger vehicles. Single yellow lines are proposed. On Hartington Road, proposed double yellow lines on the south-western side at the junction with Ibis Lane will be extended by 10 metres.

It is also proposed that occupants of the various private roads/developments in the area will be granted permit eligibility limited to one per property for the zone they are located within, with the exception of any development which may be ineligible to purchase parking permits due to a restriction imposed by planning consent.
