Majority of Stamford Hill East and West residents in favour of parking controls
A council-run consultation has revealed that the majority of residents in Stamford Hill East and West are in favour of the introduction of parking controls in the area.
The results of the Stage 1 Consultation, which ran between December 2020 and March 2021, have shown that 63 percent of those taking part are in favour of a Parking Zone (PZ) being introduced in Stamford Hill East and West.
The Council is now recommending that parking controls be introduced on 42 roads in the area, as well as pushing ahead with a Stage 2 Consultation in September (pending approval) on the proposed new zones named ‘W’ and ‘Y’.
“I want to thank all of those across Stamford Hill’s diverse communities who engaged with us during the consultation period.
“We wanted to consult with residents due to the large number of complaints the Council has received about parking stress in the area, with parts of Stamford Hill receiving a high volume of daytime visitors from neighbouring boroughs.
“The introduction of a Parking Zone (PZ) will help us to reduce parking stress caused by displacement parking from commuters, visitors and residents in nearby zones seeking free parking.”
