Controlled Parking Zone times can vary
Residents say NO to Controlled Parking Zone
Valley Fontaine, BBC London
Haringey Council announces the findings of a major parking consultation in the N6 and N8 areas of the borough, but is yet to make its decision
Haringey Council has announced the findings of a major consultation on whether residents in N8 and N6 would like new parking controls in their roads.
More than 1,250 households responded to the consultation on proposals to introduce a controlled parking zone (CPZ) in residential streets in the area.
The council says plans were drawn up by the council in conjunction with a focus group of local residents and ward councillors in response to increasing concerns about parking pressures in the area, particularly following the introduction of two new CPZs over the borough border in Islington.
Residents were asked if they would like a CPZ introduced in their road:
60% said no;
Residents were asked if there was a parking problem in their road:
50% said no;
43% said no
There was clear support for a CPZ in some roads. These include (based on 10 or more responses):
Mount View Road (95 per cent in favour)
The Broadway (100 per cent opposed)
Parking ticket being issued
"Clearly there's a wide range of views here, with some roads clearly in favour of a controlled parking zone and some clearly opposed.
"We will now study the results in detail to try to find a solution which best addresses residents' concerns."
A decision on whether to introduce any CPZ and, if so, which roads will be announced in September.
If the council agrees to proceed with any scheme, there would then be a second opportunity for residents to give views.
