East Sheen parking ready for an overhaul
Drivers in East Sheen will see major improvements to parking and can say what they want in an upcoming parking review.
Lack of parking near homes and shops in East Sheen was an issue raised in the 2010 All in One Survey and another consultation will be sent to households next month.
The council is considering removing or extending the community parking zone (CPZ), depending on the local response.
The council may also shorten existing yellow lines to maximise available parking spaces or reduce the operating hours of the CPZ, which would shrink parking permits from £68 per year to £40.
Councillor Chris Harrison, cabinet member for highways, wants people affected by the proposals to give their views in the upcoming parking review.
He said: “The information that is provided to us will provide vital assistance in making decisions about implementation of new schemes in East Sheen, and will ultimately improve parking provision for residents and shoppers alike.”
People will have five weeks to give their views on parking in East Sheen and plans showing the current arrangements will be on display at the Sheen Lane Centre or on the council’s website.
