Sutton's Parking Consultation Stage 1 - Geographical Area 3

Closes 17 Oct 2019

Opened 5 Sep 2019

Overview

With resident surveys consistently identifying on-street parking as one of the issues of most concern to residents in the borough, the council has adopted a borough-wide Parking Strategy.

The parking strategy forms part of Sutton’s overall five-year plan Ambitious for Sutton.

Both plans seek to take a cohesive, cross-borough view of parking options and future-proof Sutton’s parking availability to help residents in the years to come.

Put simply, there are some areas in Sutton where there are simply too many cars and if we don’t do something soon, we will run out of space for everybody to park their car.

Emergency services and waste collection contractors have reported issues gaining access to some streets. Ongoing growth in population with new housing developments, commuter parking pressures and wide-spread dependency on motor vehicle travel in the borough mean that we need to review our parking controls.

The Parking Strategy consultations seek to take stock of parking across the borough and enable residents to “have their say” on proposals for parking in their streets. We know these issues are not felt everywhere but we are keen for residents to give us their perspective as you will know the issues impacting your street.

Our parking strategy is being rolled out in three phases, with each phase covering different locations across the borough. This survey is for Geographical Area 3, where we’ll be consulting with some residents and businesses in the Cheam North, Worcester Park, Beddington and Wallington areas, as shown in the blue area highlighted on the map below.

This is the first consultation of three that will take place in Geographical Area 3. At this stage we want to understand your general views on parking in your local area.

What are we reviewing?

The Parking Strategy seeks to provide the best-suited solution to the parking issues of each area. Our consultations will take into account resident and business feedback along with consideration of ongoing and future impact of local attractors including railway stations, hospitals, educational institutions, car parks, superstores and high streets.  It may be that in your area, nothing will change, because the consensus is that the current arrangements are working satisfactorily. It will only be at future stages that we will consult you about any specific proposals.

It may be useful to visit our website (www.sutton.gov.uk/parkingstrategy) to identify if schemes from adjacent roads or areas are being introduced, potentially causing parking displacement into your road/area.

How can I give my views?

Please complete the online survey that closes on Thursday October, 17, 2019.

Only one submission will be accepted per household.

This questionnaire seeks your views on parking in your street. The information you provide will only be used for this project and analysed to help understand parking issues and possible solutions on individual streets across the borough. Your details will be kept strictly confidential and will not be shared with a third party. Please note that responses cannot be considered without a name, address and postcode being provided.

If you’re not able to get online, you can request a paper version of the questionnaire by calling 020 8770 5000.

We regret that due to the number of responses received during a public consultation of this size it will not be possible to individually reply to each respondent. 

Further Frequently Asked Questions are available on the Council’s website: www.sutton.gov.uk/parkingstrategy 

Publishing/ Privacy Statement 

Through participating in this consultation we will be publishing your responses. Your responses will remain confidential and we will not attribute responses to you personally, unless you self identify or include information about yourself in your response.

Why We Are Consulting

The decision on whether or not to proceed with the next step will be based on the responses received during this first consultation along with information from our parking beat surveys and other technical considerations.

The responses to this questionnaire will help us understand, in more detail, parking problems residents face on a daily basis. We’ll then be able to design any parking measures for your road/area.

We will then carry out further consultation on any proposed measures asking residents to provide feedback on the detailed designs.
