Sunninghill Road: CPZ Consultation

If you are a resident of Sunninghill Road, you should be receiving a consultation booklet in the next few days asking whether you would like the Lewisham Controlled Parking Zone (which currently abuts Sunninghill Road) extended to include Sunninghill Road. This consultation is being carried out in response to residents' concerns about parking difficulties in the road, which have been compounded by the opening of the new medical centre, as well as the adjacent CPZ. I know this is something that Ute followed up on residents' behalf.

Whatever your views on CPZs, it's important that if you live in Sunninghill Road you respond and make your views known. Unlike some consultations where it seems that the decision has already been made, that is not the case with CPZs - Lewisham's policy is that they only go ahead when a clear majority in the area are in favour, so do make sure your voice is heard.

If you don't receive a copy of the consultation, do let me know - it should be available on the Council's website soon too.
