Parking in CA-D

We presented a summary of our CA-D Parking Report at the H&CG Area Action Group meeting on 4th March. Camden say that need to balance the use of the limited kerb space in the borough. We imagine that it's to ensure a fair distribution amongst the various potential users - Residents, P&D, Traders, Doctors etc.

The conclusion of our fact-based, detailed study and report is that residents needs are being pushed to the back.  We are a trapped 'market', having been sold a permit without any guarantee of a space - and more than that; when the pressure of demand from other users grows greater, it's the residents' bay that are first in line for the chop.  Camden can, and do, sell resident permits without ensuring that there is an appropriate and fair ratio of bays available.  It's time for change.

Here are our demands:

Rebalance in Favour of Residents

  • Protect & preserve existing residents bays
  • Reduce P&D, increase resident bays
  • Be reluctant to suspend residents bays
  • Resident bays suspended for filming to have alternate adjacent provision
  • Shared use CA-D/P&D
  • Increase the number of resident bays
  • Be fair to residents

A message from Cllr Fulbrook

Sometimes there is a silver lining… The Mayor of London had ambitious plans to part-pedestrianise Oxford Street and to tackle the appalling congestion at the infamous Swiss Cottage gyratory, but  Westminster City Council fought off both schemes with vigour.
