Have your say on the proposed Controlled Parking Zones (CPZ) in Streatham

Following last year’s survey which showed many Streatham residents and business owners favoured the introduction of controlled parking zones the Stage 1 consultation begins today. The Council is consulting residents and businesses in St Leonard's ward and Streatham Vale West, as this area already experiences severe parking issues due to the rail station and could not withstand any further pressure from any displacement of a possible St Leonard’s CPZ.

A newsletter has been sent to every household with details of the proposals. The letter  contains a unique reference number (URN) allowing you to complete and submit the online survey using the link provided by the consultation closing date of 30 September 2019

What is a CPZ?
A controlled parking zone is an area where parking restrictions favour the needs of residents, their visitors and any local businesses. All of the kerbside is marked either as a parking bay or as a yellow line. Parking bays are only marked where safety, access and sight lines are not compromised. A sign beside each bay explains what restrictions apply in terms of who can park there, at what times (the “controlled hours”) and for how long. Yellow lines are marked where they either improve road safety or enable traffic to pass.

A single yellow line means no parking is allowed during part of the day whilst double yellow lines mean no parking at any time. The operational times for single yellow lines are indicated on signs as drivers enter the zone.

Subject to adhering to the Highway Code and there being no loading restrictions, drivers may stop on a single or double yellow line to load or unload goods for a limited period of time.

For detailed results of the primary survey conducted last year broken down into individual roads and the decision report which includes information on plans for the phase 2 consultation of the remaining roads in the Streatham South area in 2020, you can visit the survey webpage at
