Hampton parking study

We are carrying out a review of parking in Hampton in response to residents' feedback.

Background

This consultation follows consideration of various parking issues reported across the area in recent years. These include petitions received by the Council from residents in Linden Road, Percy Road and Oldfield Road concerning the difficulties they have in finding a parking space near to their home. It is understood that these difficulties may be due to the parking of vehicles by non-residents (all day commuters/long stay) which could be alleviated by the introduction of a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ).

We are also reviewing the provision of parking (free short stay spaces) and waiting restrictions (yellow lines) near to the shops in Station Road and Ashley Road to see if these arrangements could be improved for the future.

This consultation includes a large area of Hampton as shown on the enclosed map (pdf, 591 KB). As well as taking into account the possibility of displacement parking following the introduction of any new CPZ, extending the consultation in this way provides an opportunity for responses to be received from a wider area of Hampton on parking issues.

More information on the consultation process is available.

Consultation

The consultation commenced on Friday 8 November 2019 and ended on Friday 10 January 2020.

Drop-in sessions

We held two drop-in sessions at the Linden Hall Community Centre in November, where residents were invited to attend and raise any questions with officers.

Parking surveys

Officers base their recommendations on their own observations of parking conditions in the area. As an additional source of information, parking beat surveys are carried out by an external survey company. These are only expected to be a snapshot of the parking conditions to establish reasonable estimates of the numbers of vehicles parked belonging to residents, visitors and non-residents.

Results

The results will be posted here once they have been analysed.

Decision

The decision will be posted here.
