CA-D Parking Hours

issues

Do you remember earlier (much earlier) this year there was a Camden consultation about whether to make the CA-D bays available 24/7 for resident permit holders. The councillor in charge of parking, Cllr Harrision, decided he couldn't make the decision so, as is usual, Cllr Gould would make the decision. In the end the Leader of the Council decided she too couldn't make the decision so it was jogged on to the Cabinet Member for Better Homes - no, me neither!  Having read the officer's report it comes as no surprise that Cllr Apak accepted the officer's recommendation to retain the current hours of control in CA-D, King’s Cross and Holborn.

Simply put in plain language, the response to the consultation was very low.

The consultation was sent to 18,626 addresses. A mere 520 responses were received. That's a response rate of 2.8%.  And what did those 520 respondees think about changes the hours of CA-D bays?

 

So there you have it. The overwhelming majority of the minority who responded don't want the hours changed.  What to have a closer look at the detail.  Here's the report.

Camden: What Should They Tell Us?

It's often (too often) been said that a 'Camden Consultation' is a metaphor for secrecy, or a technique to not properly listen and respond to what residents want done. A fob off. Of course this is over-simplifying or over stating the problem. There are consultations, our ward councillors do listen, and some things (b...
