Tottenham Hotspur Stadium Major Event Day Parking Measures

Closes Friday 23rd February 2018 Submit your comments

Overview

The Council consulted residents last year about parking problems in the South Edmonton area, particularly those likely to occur when the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium opens next year with a capacity increased from 38,000 to over 61,000.

In addition to hosting all of Tottenham’s home matches, the stadium has permission for up to 16 non-football major events per year, two of which will be National Football League (American football) matches and up to six could be music concerts.

More information on the new stadium can be found on the Tottenham Hotspur stadium website.

Tottenham Hotspur F.C. is taking steps to ensure that as many people as possible travel to the stadium by public transport. However, without on-street parking controls, some spectators will attempt to drive and park in residential streets. This could result in:

  • Severe congestion on the local road network;
  • Increased delays to the local bus service due to bus diversions;
  • Residents and businesses being unable to park in local streets.

To combat these problems, the Council believes it is necessary to introduce an event-day controlled parking zone (CPZ).

The main features of the scheme are:

  • The scheme will only apply on event days between 12noon and 9pm in the streets shown on the map.
  • Event days will be well signed so it will be clear when the restrictions apply. These will normally be displayed three days before a home match or stadium event.
  • Residents and their visitors will need to have a permit if they wish to park on-street on event days during the controlled hours.
  • Permits will initially be free of charge for residents and businesses based within the CPZ and will be valid for three years. After this period, the operation of the CPZ will be reviewed and it may be necessary to introduce a charge to ensure that the scheme is covering its costs.
  • Residents with a vehicle(s) registered to an address within the CPZ will be eligible for a vehicle-specific permit.
  • Visitor vouchers will also be available (for a small charge) for people visiting residents living within the CPZ (details in FAQ).
  • Any vehicle without a valid permit/voucher may be issued with a Penalty Charge Notice (parking ticket).
  • Yellow lines and vehicle bays will be painted to show where vehicles can and can’t park.

We would be grateful for your views on this proposal. Your views are important even if you do not own a vehicle or park in the South Edmonton area, as your visitors may be affected by the proposal.

Have your say by completing the online survey below by Friday 23 February 2018.

Please note that only one response per household will be accepted as a valid consultation response.

You can find more information on CPZs in the FAQ section.

Your comments will be taken into account when we decide whether to make the ‘traffic management order’ that legally brings the CPZ into operation and allows it to be enforced. However, completing the survey does not affect your right to formally object to or make further representations if you wish. If this is something you want to do, your representations must be made in writing to Project Centre, Traffic Orders Team, Unit 2 Holford Yard, London, WC1X 9HD and received by Friday 23 February 2018.

Next steps

A summary of the consultation results will be published on Enfield Council’s website.

All responses received during this statutory consultation process (including valid returned questionnaire forms and online surveys) will be collated and reviewed, and changes will be made to the design if appropriate. Subject to the outcome of the consultation process, the aim is for the new parking controls to be in place for the start of the 2018/19 football season.

Frequently asked questions

What is a CPZ?

A CPZ is an area where parking is prioritised for residents and their visitors through a permit system. If you or your visitors wish to park in the South Edmonton area during the restricted times of the event day, you will need to have a valid permit (or visitor voucher). The CPZ will have signs telling motorists (and residents) the days and times that the restrictions apply.

How do CPZs work?

The CPZ works by ensuring that only vehicles with valid permits are allowed to park in designated bays during the hours the Event Day CPZ operates.

Permits will only be made available to local residents and businesses within the CPZ boundary.

The CPZ will only operate when a match or major event is taking place at the stadium, although there may be existing restrictions that still apply (such as double yellow lines at junctions etc.).

What are the advantages of an Event Day CPZ?

The CPZ will reduce traffic congestion on event days caused by spectators looking for available parking. The CPZ will also ensure that residents have a better chance of being able to park close to their homes.

Will there be a cost for permits?

Permits for residents and businesses will be free of charge and last for three years, subsidised by Tottenham Hotspur F.C.

Visitor vouchers

In addition, a small charge is proposed for visitor permits: £15 for a book of ten visitor event-day permits.

Residents can purchase up to two books of visitor event-day permits (i.e. 20 permits) for their visitors to park within the CPZ during the controlled hours.

How has the CPZ area been decided?

The CPZ boundary is based on a 30 minute walk time from the Stadium. However, it is possible that some parking could be displaced into uncontrolled roads just outside the CPZ. If this happens, there will be an opportunity to extend the CPZ.

Will there be new signs and road markings?

Yes, there will be new signs and road markings.

Every effort will be made to keep these to a minimum.

How do I apply for a permit?

If the controlled parking zone goes ahead you will be able to apply for your permit online at www.enfield.gov.uk

I am disabled and a Blue Badge holder, do I need an event day CPZ permit?

No, blue badge holders can park for as long as they want in permit bays as long as they display a valid Blue Badge.

This area has been consulted on before, what were the findings from that consultation?

The previous consultation provided a useful insight into parking problems in the area and possible solutions. The result can be found on the Council’s website. Some areas indicated a preference for more extensive parking controls and this has not been ruled out as a future phase of the scheme. However, we believe there is an urgent need to protect residential streets as soon as the Stadium opens in August and that an event-day CPZ is the most effective way of delivering this.

I require more visitor vouchers than the 20 proposed, will I be able to have more?

20 vouchers should be sufficient to cater for most people’s requirements as equates to one visitor permit per home match. However, the Council would look sympathetically if a there were valid reason for additional permits, e.g. for visits by a regular carer.

I am a local business in the proposed CPZ. Where will staff who drive to work be able to park?

Permits will be available so that vehicles essential of the operation of a business can park in the CPZ. However, staff who are simply driving to and from work will not be eligible for permits; they will have to either find alternative off-street parking, park outside the CPZ, or consider travelling by other means of transport.

Why was this time chosen when music concerts will go on later than 9pm?

We want to limit the parking controls to the minimum necessary to enable residents to continue to be able to park close to their homes. The vast majority of people attending an evening event are expected to arrive before 9pm, so will not be able to park within the CPZ. However, the operation of the scheme will be monitored once in place and the restricted hours could be adjusted in the future, subject to further local consultation.

The event day controlled parking zone doesn’t do enough to solve parking problems in the area.

Some people have highlighted that they experience parking problems throughout the week, which will not be addressed by the event-day CPZ. We see the event-day CPZ as essential in order to protect the amenity of a large number of local residents and have therefore prioritised its implementation.  In the future, we can come back to explore other parking controls if these are supported by the local community.

Will vehicles be able to park in front of my dropped kerb?

No vehicles will be able to park adjacent to dropped kerbs between midday and 9pm on event days. However, outside these hours residents (but no-one else without permission) can continue to park in front of their own dropped kerbs.

What enforcement will there be to ensure that the controls are adhered to?

The level of enforcement will be set to ensure a high level of compliance with the new parking restrictions. Civil Enforcement Officers (parking wardens) will issue penalty charge notices (fines) to those who do not comply with the controls.
