Residents are being asked to have their say on parking in Kew

Release Date: 29 July 2020

A review of parking in the Kew area has been launched to ask local residents for their views and opinions on potential new and increased parking measures.

The Council does not usually express a view during consultations about how parking controls should operate. However, given that exceptional circumstances are likely to result in a higher demand for parking spaces from non-residents in this area (including those associated with the Brentford Football Club development), the Council is proposing the following:

This follows a number of issues across the area including petitions received by the Council from residents of Gloucester Road and Kew Green concerning the difficulties finding a parking space near to their home.

It is expected that additional pressure will be placed on parking spaces in the area due to completion of the new Brentford Football Club stadium and flats development over Kew Bridge, major events held at Kew Gardens, and the recent suspension of all parking spaces along the west side of Kew Road to support the northbound cycle lane.

  • That the operational hours of KA and KB Controlled Parking Zones (CPZs), currently operating Monday to Friday 10am to noon, should be extended every day for a minimum duration of 4 hours a day. View details of the consultation and complete the online survey for KA and the KB survey.
  • The Council is also conducting a separate consultation on the Niton Road / Chilton Road area to see if there is support to extend parking controls (Zone KB) after some residents in the area requested parking controls. View details of the consultation and complete the online survey.

All feedback on the consultations will be considered very carefully before a decision is made on the way forward.

If you would like a paper copy of the questionnaire, please contact 020 8891 1411 and this will be posted out to you along with a pre-paid envelope for your response.

Closing date for online or paper consultation responses and/or e-mails is Wednesday 26 August 2020.
