Review launched to protect parking for local communities

Published: Friday, 11 October 2019

A parking review has been launched by Havering Council to ask households and businesses on how best to protect their parking.

The Council will be consulting in the following areas:

  •  Elm Park
  •  Hylands
  •  Romford
  •  Rainham
  •  Emerson Park
  •  Gidea Park
  •  Hornchurch
  •  Upminster
  •  Harold Wood

The Council will also be engaging and talking to businesses, in particular the Hornchurch and Upminster areas.

Councillor Osman Dervish, Havering’s Cabinet Member for Environment, said:

“We know many households and businesses experience problems parking near their homes and business properties. With the introduction of Crossrail and a new C2C connection, we expect this to become worse.

“To find out more about these issues and look at the best solutions, we have launched our parking review consultation in nine areas around the borough from which we have heard have the most problems.

“This will also offer us a clearer picture of the whole borough. It is important that we listen and really know what residents think is the best way to protect their parking.

“These solutions could cover anything from new Controlled Parking Zones (CPZs), additional yellow lines, new parking bays, or even making no change at all.

“We are also listening to the views of businesses, especially in Hornchurch and Upminster, who have expressed concerns about the end of free parking.

When this has finished, we will publish the results and once again ask these households and businesses if they are happy with the proposed solutions.”

The consultation will run until midnight on Friday 22 November.

Take part in the consultation

Paper copies will also be available across libraries in the nine areas from next week.
