A new community parking zone will be launched in Teddington, following a public consultation.
Last year, the Council consulted residents on proposals to increase the hours of the community parking zone in Waldegrave Road and to introduce a new parking zone in a number of roads north of the zone with feedback showing support for both.
Richmond Council has reviewed all the feedback received from residents and determined that there is sufficient support to move forward with the changes.
The changes will:
- Extend the operational hours of Zone T in Waldegrave Road to 10am to 4.30pm, Mon-Fri. Included in the proposals is a change of 3 permit holder spaces to free short stay visitor parking spaces (1 hour max stay) outside No 8 Waldegrave Road to provide some turnover parking.
- Propose a new Community Parking Zone (Zone T1) operating 10am to 4.30pm, Mon to Fri in Arlington Road, Cambridge Road (between Teddington Park and Teddington Park Road), Chatsworth Place, Claremont Road, Teddington Park, Teddington Park Road and Woodville Close.
Richmond Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways and Streetscene, Cllr Peter Buckwell, said:
“The purpose of these measures is to alleviate parking problems and traffic congestion. The Council has carried out a number of wide-spread consultations on these proposals and listened to resident’s concerns.”
The new CPZ will come into operation, with the new operational hours in Waldegrave Road, Teddington on March 20. It will be reviewed after around six months of operation.
