Peckham West 'PW' CPZ Review

Closed 28 Nov 2022

Opened 7 Nov 2022


We would like your views on the Peckham West 'PW' permit parking scheme in your area.

We are aware that there may have been changes in the area such as residential developments and an increase in bars and restaurants, that parking stress has increased and we would like to know if you would like to the operational hours extended or for them to remain the same.  As the parking zone only operates for 2 hours of the day, we would not advise that this is reduced even further as it would be difficult to enforce.   We are also not seeking to remove the parking zone therefore this question has not been asked.

If we receive a majority in favour of amending the operating times and hours of your parking zone we will put forward a recommended amendment to the Cabinet Member for Environment, Transport and the Climate Emergency to make a final decision.

This decision would then be subject to statutory consultation.

What are the pros and cons of extending the operating hours of my parking zone?


  • Parking on your street will be prioritised for residents, their visitors and businesses for longer and at the weekend;
  • The removal of parking in the evening and at the weekend would leave space available for street improvements such as places to rest and cycle parking.


  • Increased operational hours would decrease the amount of time you can park without permits which may mean you would need to purchase more visitors’ permits.
  • There may be some parking displacement to nearby parking zones from those who would normally use Zone ‘PW’ for evening and weekend parking.

If we were able to reduce the amount of vehicles parked in the area, we could consider introducing a variety of street improvements as detailed below:

  • More and varied cycle parking
  • Places to rest (single chairs with arm rests) for the elderly, children and people with disabilities.
  • Planted screen (e.g. Ivy) to capture particulate matter pollution.
  • ‘Parklets’ – communal seating and planting in car parking spaces, provided on a trial basis.

Why your views matter

We would like to ensure that the parking restrictions in your area are still working for you. Please let us know if you would like to see any changes. 

What happens next

A report with recommendations will be presented to the Cabinet Member for a final decision subject to statutory consultation.

Any recommended changes would be published in the Southwark News, The Gazette and on street inviting representations.
