Statutory consultation – estate parking

Lambeth Council would like to hear from you on plans to enforce parking on certain housing estates to ensure that only residents park in the area and to maintain order.

Closed Submit your comments

Overview

Lambeth Council is proposing to manage your estates’ parking in a similar way to the current on-street controlled parking zones found in your surrounding areas.

The Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 made it an offence to clamp, tow, block-in or immobilise a vehicle on private land without lawful authority. This meant that we could no longer effectively enforce parking on the estates. In order to protect estate resident parking and maintain order, such lawful authority has been sort in the form of Traffic Management Orders. In light of the new legislation the Department for Transport says that the most effective way to manage parking on housing estates is by using the Council’s legal powers to create a statutory traffic order.

This would allow Lambeth Council to penalise non compliant vehicles more easily, in line with the on-street enforcement policy. Residents and visitors will be able to park on their estate provided they have an up-to-date permit or voucher displayed in their vehicle. Anyone found not complying may be issued with a penalty charge notice.

The Notice of Proposals can be found here.

The Statement of Reason can be found here.

Please note the deadline for objections has been extended until 17 November 2017.

What happens next?

When the 21 day statutory consultation period is over, if there is not a significant amount of objection to the proposal and it is endorsed by the consultees the order will be made, and an extensive programme will be undertaken to transform estate parking areas ahead of the changes. This may include repainting of bays and new signs.

Residents will then receive a separate notification (letter) advising you of:

  • the outcome of the consultation
  • the schedule for the installation of signage and line marking
  • the go live date for enforcement to begin
  • when/where/how to purchase a permit
