White Hart Lane CPZ review 2021

We are reviewing the effectiveness of the existing White Hart Lane CPZ (Zone B2) and consulting residents in several roads outside the zone to see if they would support the extension of Zone B2 into their area.

Background

In March 2019, we implemented the White Hart Lane Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ), Zone B2, operating 10am to noon, Monday to Friday, following consultation with residents and businesses in the area.

Since its implementation, we have received feedback from the public concerning the zone's operation as well as requests for a CPZ from nearby roads. We have noted the feedback received and is now carrying out the following:

  • Consulting residents as we review the road design in the existing CPZ and considering whether any modifications are required in light of observed/reported access issues;
  • Consulting residents in the existing CPZ on the effectiveness of this zone and considering whether any further changes should be made including to the operational hours/days;
  • Consulting residents living in several roads outside of the zone to see if they would like parking controls extended to their roads.

Scheme design

View the preliminary design (pdf, 1.4 MB)

We have applied a design called a Permit Parking Area (PPA) to most roads in the area. This is where lines and signs are kept to a minimum. This may include a bay designated for permit holders and visitors for example, double yellow lines at a road junction, and a sign at the entrance to the road stating 'Permit holders only beyond this point' but no other lines/signs. The aim of this is to maximise space and minimise street clutter. PPAs are only intended for roads with lower traffic volumes or no through traffic, like cul-de-sacs.  

The exception to this is in Westwood Road and Leconfield Avenue where parking in marked bays is to be retained. Parking has been permitted on the footway in these roads due to the narrowness of the roads. In Westwood Road, vehicles are currently parking fully on the footway. To ensure that adequate width remains on the footway, we will be looking to revert to the original layout and re-position the bays partially on the footway on both sides of Westwood Road. In Leconfield Avenue, the current layout will be retained with a mixture of partial footway parking in most sections, and parking fully on the road in others.

An issue has been reported with the position of the electric vehicle charging bay in this road. Officers are considering options.

Consultation

The consultation opens on Friday 23 July and closes on Friday 17 September 2021.

If you are unable to complete the survey online and you would like a paper copy of the questionnaire, please call (020) 8871 8929 leaving your name and address including postcode and quoting reference 'B2 OUT' and one will be posted out to you with a postage paid return envelope.

Please complete the survey

We would like to demonstrate that any measures have the support of the local community, so a good response is important. Whilst we would like to apply the most supported options among responding households, the final decision will not be based on residents’ views alone. All feedback will be considered along with relevant traffic management and other highway factors, prior to a decision being made on the way forward. The results will form part of a report which will be posted here when published.

More information

Further information, including on parking charges is available on the Controlled Parking Zones (CPZ).
