Penge Parking Scheme Update

Council officers are now drawing up plans for a detailed scheme for the centre of Penge and the roads leading up to Penge East station from the High Street. Generally, there is support for the scheme but response rates are less than 50%.  We will support whatever the majority of residents want.

    Please support us in Lucas Road where we’re desperately in need of parking restrictions. Currenly it’s the only place in London where you can park 30 seconds away from a mainline station without paying and residents can’t park in their own street due to all the commuters.

    • We support the parking review because residents have been loud and clear that they want one. However we have no preference whether the CPZs are approved or not that is for each road to address.
      Our task is to ensure that as many residents as possible return the consultation paper so that a clear majority decision can be reached.
      We will keep in touch with LBB and offer to door knock on roads where forms are not being returned.
      Newlands Park Parade have opted for a CPZ so this could impact on Lucas Road so again we need residents to return the forms stating their preference.

    Has the deadline passed for consulting residents? As there was a low turnout on the last one. It is necessary to really push to ensure that all residents have the opportunity to be heard and potentially resend the consultation paper,especially as it is the residents who will have to pay to park on their own road. What effort are being made to do this?
    I am particularly concerned about Southey street and as someone who has not returned the consultation paper – I would appreciate if the additional efforts were made to reach out to those who have not responded by re-sending the form , knocking on doors etc, As a resident, I can tell you that these things are not currently been done.

    When is the deadline for submitting the consultation paper? Please can it be resent to Southey street, as a resident I know that no door knocking has taken place or additional efforts to gain peoples views has taken place.

    • We are liaising directly with you via e-mail but for other interested parties our response is the report went to committee recently. There was general but not exclusive support for a Controlled Parking Zone and officers are drawing up a detailed scheme for further consultation. We will keep up to date about the numbers of returned forms and where necessary door knock to encourage residents to vote for either a yes or no for such a scheme. We will support the decision made by the greatest number of residents.

      Paul.Nevard@bromley.gov.uk is leading on this.

    • It is too early for door knocking but we will support the consultation as best we can.
      We plan to keep up to date on returned form numbers and encourage residents to vote either way. Of course many residents do not own cars so there will always be a number of forms residents may not return or may not express an interest either way.
      This is a resident led consultation and we councilors have no personal view on this.
