Oxford Avenue, Kingston Road, Firstway and London Road Tooting Station proposals to improve parking facilities – Statutory Consultation

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Housing, Regeneration and the Climate Emergency

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Decision:

I, Councillor Andrew Judge, the Cabinet Member for Environmental Sustainability and Regeneration;

 

A) Noted the result of the statutory consultations carried out in September 2013, on measures to improve parking for the businesses on Kingston Road, Oxford Avenue, Wimbledon Chase, Firstway and London Road, Tooting Station.

 

B) Noted and considered representations (detailed in Appendix 2) received in respect of the proposals as shown in Drawing No. Z78-214-01 and Z78-214- 01-02 in Appendix 1.

 

C) Agree to proceed with the making of the relevant Traffic Management Orders (TMOs) for the implementation of the proposed measures detailed below and as shown in Drawing No. Z78-214-01, Z78-214-01-02 and Z28- 281-01 in Appendix 1:-

 

1. Agree to convert permit holder only bays in Kingston Road outside properties Nos. 393 - 405 to Pay and Display shared use bays, to operate with a maximum stay of 2 hours and no return within 1 hour. These bays will be available to permit holders as well as visitors / customers to local businesses.

 

2. Agree to convert some permit holder only bays in Oxford Avenue outside the flank wall of properties Nos. 407 and 407a Kingston Road to Pay and Display shared use bays, Monday to Friday; between 8.30am and 6.30pm with a maximum stay of 2 hours and no return within 1 hour. I make this decision on a temporary basis to allow 3 months operation, during which the parking situation will be monitored. The decision will be made after he 3 months operation. If the outcome is contrary to the expectations of officers and it leads to an evidenced shortage of parking capacity for residents then the bays will revert to ‘residents only’ use.

 

3. Agree to introduce Pay and Display only bays between properties nos 5 and 17 London Road, to operate Monday to Friday, between 7.00am and 7.00pm with a maximum stay of 1 hour and no return within 1 hour with 20 minutes free, at a charge of £0.90 per hour

 

4. Agree to convert section of existing single yellow line restriction to double yellow lines to facilitate the introduction of free parking bays in Firstway. These parking bays will operate Monday to Friday, between 8.30am and 6.30pm with 1 hour maximum stay and no return within 2 hours.

 

D) Agree to exercise his discretion not to hold a public inquiry on the

consultation process.
