In July 2017 LB Hounslow’s Traffic and Transport department undertook an initial consultation to understand whether residents and businesses in the Northumberland Estate area of Isleworth would support the introduction of parking controls in the form of a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ).
The results of the initial CPZ consultation indicated that the majority of respondents were supportive of the introduction of a CPZ in the Northumberland Estate ‘area’, and particularly in Hartham Road, with the preferred days of operation being Monday-Friday.
In light of the consultation results and following discussions with local ward councillors, it has been agreed to progress the proposals to the detailed design stage. For the purposes of the detailed design and at the request of councillors, the consultation area presented in the initial consultation has been divided into two and the design of two separate CPZs, one for the Hartham Road ‘area’ (HR) and one for the Northumberland Estate ‘area’ (NE), has been taken forward. The Council is now seeking to understand the views of residents’ and businesses’ on these design proposals by undertaking a Detailed Design Consultation process.
As part of the proposed scheme design, parking in Hartham Road has predominantly been proposed as resident permit holder only bays, for use by residents and their visitors. When parking in these bays during the operational hours vehicles would be required to display a valid parking permit. Only residents of the zone would be eligible for parking permits. At the eastern end of Hartham Road, close to the junction of London Road, a number of ‘shared-use’ bays are proposed for use by residents, their visitors and RingGo pay-to-park users.
Parking in the Deepwell Close and Langley Road cul-de-sacs will be provided as ‘permit holders only past this point’ (PHOPTP) parking. This will allow residents to park in the positions they think appropriate, including across their own dropped kerb. Bays will not be marked on the road but yellow line waiting restrictions will show where parking is not permitted. Vehicles parked in these roads would still be required to display a valid permit during the operational hours should the CPZ be introduced.
Residents who have blue badges are eligible to park in on-street shared use and permit holder bays (except where controlled signs state otherwise) without displaying a residents’ parking permit.
This consultation is an opportunity for you to have your say and to make comments about the proposal and your views will help determine the final CPZ design for implementation. I would therefore strongly encourage you to respond to the questionnaire even if you do not experience any parking difficulties and/or are not in favour of a CPZ.
Before completing the questionnaire, please review the information provided, on how a CPZ works and the costs involved. Once you are satisfied you have sufficient information, I would be grateful if you would return the completed questionnaire by Monday, 12th March 2018.
The results of the consultation will be reported to your local ward councillors and you will be notified in writing of the outcome of the consultation and any future action. If the scheme is progressed, officers will produce a detailed design for the CPZ scheme and undertake further consultation with residents and businesses.
Should you have any queries or require further information, please do not hesitate to contact Martin Hempell.
Should you wish to discuss any matter relating to your CPZ or require further information please telephone 020 8583 3322 or email: email@example.com
Attached is a plan showing the extent of the scheme design and proposed location of parking bays and yellow lines. Where possible, the design could be altered to accommodate resident requests.
