Consultation Feedback

We are pleased to announce that the result of the Stage One and Two consultation on the introduction of parking controls in zone U (Upper Clapton area) is now available on our website. A copy of the approved delegated report which details the decision made by the Council has been attached below. Summary leaflets detailing the results of the consultation and final decision made by the Council will shortly be sent out by post to all residents and businesses in the area.



The Council recently consulted and implemented parking controls in nearby roads in the Lea Bridge and Hackney Downs Wards in 2017.

Since parking controls were introduced in the above areas, Parking Services have received a high number of requests for the introduction of parking controls from residents in your area who are experiencing difficulty with parking due to increased parking stress in the area.

We recognise that the introduction of controls in the nearby area has had an impact on parking in your road and other uncontrolled roads in your area. To minimise the impact of parking pressure in these roads, we are consulting residents and businesses in your area to provide them with another opportunity to have their say on the introduction of parking controls.

Parking Services are carrying out a ‘combined’ stage 1 and 2 consultation to ensure that controls are implemented in a timely manner if residents are in favour.

We are requesting your feedback on:

• Support for parking controls.

• The proposed design of parking controls for the area.

• Hours of operation for parking controls in your area.

Please see the enclosed map for more information about the area being consulted and the proposed design of parking restrictions.

What Happens Next

Consultation Results – May 2018
