The Proposal

In 2002 every home affected received a notice of the proposal. This time the proposal has been taped to lamposts in the affected areas - yes, those same lamposts where we see missing cat posters. Have you even noticed it?

This is the proposal published by the Council.

PROPOSED EXTENSION OF THE HOURS OF OPERATION FOR THE CROYDON CONTROLLED PARKING ZONE AND OFF STREET CAR PARKS MANAGED BY CROYDON COUNCIL.

The Council is proposing to extend the hours the Croydon Controlled Parking Zone operates so that the sub-zones surrounding the Central Zone would mirror its operating hours of 8am to midnight, Monday to Sunday inclusive. These sub-zones are the North, South, West, East Inner and East Outer areas.

The operational hours would apply to both parking bays and single yellow lines within each zone. On strategic roads the commencement of the parking controls would remain at 7am and extend to midnight in line with the subzone.

Since the inception of the Zones in the early 1990’s, when the current hours of operation for the outer zones were Monday to Saturday 9am to 5pm, there have been changes in shopping, entertainment and travel patterns in and around Croydon and the increase in traffic has had an effect on the demand for kerbside parking space and therefore needs to be managed more effectively.

The level of available space for residents and businesses in the area has been reduced due to public shopping habits changing which have also seen extra traffic travelling into the town centre on Sundays and in the evenings.

The Council also proposes to increase the hours of operation for all off street car parks managed by Croydon Council so that they would operate seven days a week, twenty four hours a day. This is to reflect the demand for car parking spaces and to provide a level of consistency across the borough making the charging patterns for Croydon easier to understand to visitors.

All comments and representations need to be received by 4 February 2011 and any further information can be obtained by telephoning the Community Services Department on 020 – 8726 7100.

The ‘Consultation’

This is all the consultation you are goign to get from the Council. In 2002 they eventually wrote to all the households in the CPZ - this time they have not even done that. We linked to the Parking consultation page on the Council website but they moved the information. In case they do that again and for the record we are erproducing that content here.

The Parking Consultation content as at 3rd Feb 2011.

Parking zone and off street car parks consultation

We are currently consulting on a proposed extension of hours of operation for the Croydon Controlled Parking Zone and Council managed off street car parks.

The Council is proposing to extend the hours the Croydon Controlled Parking Zone operates so that the sub-zones surrounding the Central Zone would mirror its operating hours of 8am to midnight, Monday to Sunday inclusive.

These sub-zones are the North, South, West, East Inner and East Outer areas. The operational hours would apply to both parking bays and single yellow lines within each zone. On strategic roads the commencement of the parking controls would remain at 7am and extend to midnight in line with the subzone.

Since the inception of the Zones in the early 1990’s, when the current hours of operation for the outer zones were Monday to Saturday 9am to 5pm, there have been changes in shopping, entertainment and travel patterns in and around Croydon and the increase in traffic has had an effect on the demand for kerbside parking space and therefore needs to be managed more effectively.

The level of available space for residents and businesses in the area has been reduced due to public shopping habits changing which have also seen extra traffic travelling into the own centre on Sundays and in the evenings. The Council also proposes to increase the hours of operation for all off street car parks managed by Croydon Council so that they would operate seven days a week, twenty four hours a day. This is to reflect the demand for car parking spaces and to provide a level of consistency across the borough
making the charging patterns for Croydon easier to understand to visitors.

All comments and representations need to be received by 4 February 2011 and any further information can be obtained by telephoning the Community Services Department on 020 – 8726 7100.
