Council seeks resident’s views on current Hampton Wick parking controls

Richmond Council are inviting local residents to give their views for a consultation review of a current Controlled Parking Zone in Hampton Wick. 

Following a number of comments and requests received by the Council, a consultation is now being carried out into the arrangements around the existing Zone X that is currently in place.

Zone X currently includes Hampton Wick High Street and surrounding roads, including Park Road, Glamorgan Road and Lower Teddington Road.

This review follows concerns from residents regarding congestion and access problems that have been occurring in the Zone on Sundays when the current CPZ is not in operation.

It is understood that these difficulties are primarily caused by shoppers and other visitors to Kingston town centre. This can result in a lack of available parking spaces for the community.

Cllr Peter Buckwell, Richmond Council Cabinet Member for Highways, said:

“We know that there are a lot of pressures on parking spaces in this area, particularly on Sundays and Bank Holidays when the current CPZ is not in place.

“We are a listening Council and we want residents to share their views on proposals that we believe will help.”
