Featured Consultations

We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We asked

We asked whether residents in the existing ‘Zone T’ parking zone and an extended area bounded by Old Kent Road, Meeting House Lane and Sumner Road, wished to see parking controls implemented.

You said

The majority of respondents stated a preference for parking controls, and noted that they experienced considerable parking pressure. The majority also wanted this to operate Monday-Friday during the day.

We did

We made a recommendation to the decision maker to proceed with an extended parking zone, to operate Monday-Friday 8am-6.30pm. This has been agreed, subject to statutory consultation expected in Spring 2022.

We asked

What do you think about proposals for a weekend street market on Melbourne Grove?

You said

Most people who responded thought this was a good idea - but with some concerns about street cleaning, parking and the mix of stalls, among other details.

We did

We are proposing to run a trial of the street market later in spring 2022. The market would operate 10-4 on Saturdays and have no more than 12 stalls. We have launched a new survey (running until 1st March 2022) so that local residents and businesses can tell us any specific considerations and concerns they may have.

We asked

We asked for your views on our new property licensing proposals and a Gold Standard Charter for Landlords to improve privately rented properties and your community.

You said

42% were in favour of our proposals to introduce an additional licensing scheme for houses let in multiple occupation (HMOs) with only 17% disagreeing.

45% were in favour of our selective licensing proposals for properties let in the private rented sector occupied by couples, individuals or a family. Only 20% disagreed.

67% of respondents said they would be more likely to move into a property let by a landlord who had signed up to our Gold Standard Charter.

A more detailed summary of the responses to the survey can be seen in the file ‘Consultation Final Report’.

We did

Following the outcome of the survey we made some changes to the conditions that will be attached to the licences and some of the property types included in the schemes. A list of these changes can be seen in the document ‘Council’s Consideration of Consultees Responses’.
