'Peckham West' parking zone and healthier streets

Closed 7 Feb 2019

Opened 11 Jan 2019

Feedback updated 28 Nov 2019

We asked

We asked residents for their views on a proposed parking zone in the 'Peckham West' area, as well as a number of healthier streets features.

You said

We received a large number of responses to the informal consultation in January and February 2019. There was no overall majority across the area either for or against a parking zone, with results varying street by street. When responses were adjusted to include those that would change their mind, there was majority support, and the highest number of responses were in support of an all-day zone, albeit by a small margin.

We did

We produced an interim report in April 2019 for the purposes of inviting feedback from community council on the interim recommendations.

In the interim report we proposed a parking zone to cover the whole of the study area with all day parking restrictions.

Comments on the report were invited from Community Council.

The report was discussed at the Dulwich Community Council Forum meeting on 27 April 2019. Dulwich Community Council gave the following feedback:

•        Peckham West to exclude Ondine Road and East Dulwich Road

•        Hours of operation reduced to 2 hours

A final consultation report and individual decision making report were presented by officers to the decision maker in July 2019 and a decision was made in August 2019 to proceed to statutory consultation on an Peckham West zone comprised of a small number of streets close to the train station to operate Monday to Friday 8.30am to 6.30pm. Details of the decision report, including the relevant reports can be found on the moderngov website . The statutory consultation ran for four weeks ending 17 October 2019. The traffic order notice can be found on the councils traffic order page.

Following statutory consultation, officers presented an objection report to the decision maker for determination. The report will be published on the moderngov website

**Consultation extended by one week due to request from residents**

Southwark Council is conducting a parking and healthier streets study in the 'Peckham West' area, shown in orange below.

We have received many requests for permit parking from residents in this area since 2015 and parking pressure has increased since the adjacent Dog Kennel Hill parking zone was implemented in December 2018, as evidenced by photos of double parking below sent by a resident and reports of parking on kerbs and in front of drop kerbs. In addition, should the East Dulwich zone to the South be implemented (also in consultation) parking stress will increase further.

Danby Street, January 2019

We are therefore carrying out a study on the potential introduction of a parking zone in 'Peckham West', to improve parking for residents and support businesses while creating more healthy streets for people from all walks of life.

We expect for the zone to result in freeing up roughly 40% of the kerbside space and are therefore proposing ‘healthy streets’ proposals to encourage walking and cycling for people from all walks of life: ‘parklets’ (planting and communal seating in the place of a parking space), seating along walking routes for places to stop and rest, and cycle parking with reserved spaces for cargo bikes and disability adapted cycles. The Southwark Spine cycle route soon to be implemented along Maxted and Adys Road is expected to further encourage cycling in the area.

Why your views matter

A parking and healthier streets study is an opportunity for the council to assess the parking issues in a certain area by asking the local residents and businesses how they view parking on their street and whether they would like a parking zone and street improvements to be introduced.

The council will analyse all responses on a road by road basis and make a recommendation to the decision maker.

Any parking controls or street improvements that we introduce will take into account the results of the consultation as well as existing highway safety issues in the proposed zone, feedback from emergency services, and our wider transport policies reflecting our responsibilities to air quality and active travel.

We would like to hear your views on the proposals. Please read the background documents below and consider the proposed layout and preliminary healthy street imrpovements before completing the questionnaire online or by post via the freepost address, by 31 January 2019.
