Event Day Parking Consultation (Parking Zones K, N and Q).

Closed 17 Jul 2017

Opened 10 May 2017

Results expected 31 Aug 2017

Overview

Parking Services wrote to you in August last year, regarding our proposals to introduce event day parking controls in your area to protect the local residents and businesses from the impact of parking stress caused by matches and events being held in the nearby Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and stadium (QEOP).

 

Why We Are Consulting

The Council acknowledges that the existing hours of control in the areas closest to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park do not take into account events taking place at the stadium outside of controlled hours.

As they are the only area bordering the park which provide free parking during events, this may lead to increased parking pressure in these roads due to visitors to the park and stadium.

West Ham United football club moved into Queen Elizabeth Olympic stadium at the beginning of the 2016/17 season and have regular football events scheduled between August and May every year. In addition there are also other major sporting or entertainment events scheduled to be held in the park and stadium throughout the year that will attract a large number of visitors to the area.

Parking Services have received feedback from some residents in roads close to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park who have informed us that they currently find it difficult to park during match and event days.

Based on this feedback, Parking Services are consulting all roads within walking distance (1 mile radius) of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on the introduction of event day controls to protect their parking needs from visitors to the Olympic Park and Stadium during matches and events.

We are requesting your feedback on;

• Support for the introduction of event day controls in your area

• Preferred hours of operation for the event day controls if they were implemented.

Please see the enclosed map for more information about the area being consulted.

Update

Unfortunately, due to a clerical error, some addresses in the zone N area may not have received the consultation documents which have been sent out.

Please accept our sincere apologies for this error. We have now sent out the consultation documents to all addresses initially excluded.

Your opinion on the proposed event day scheme is important to us and therefore to ensure all residents have sufficient time to review and respond to the consultation, we have also extended the consultation deadline by four weeks.

The consultation will now end on Monday 17th July 2017.
