Pinner parking review welcomed
A review of parking restrictions and a controlled parking zone has been welcomed by some living in a Harrow village.
Harrow Borough Council is consulting on a review of parking in the Pinner area which will look at parking in the village centre and surrounding residential roads.
These include the waiting and loading restrictions on narrow roads, the provision of loading bays in the High street and a review of the existing controlled parking zone (CPZ) and hours of restriction.
Ruth Boff from the Pinner Association said: “As a whole the Pinner association welcomes this parking review. We have been calling for it for some time.
“Current time restrictions with the controlled parking zone are working well and residents have learned to live with it.
“Any extension in this time would be intrusive on people’s lives and we would not want to see an increase in times of the CPZ restrictions.
“We also welcome the review of parking in the high street which is also needed. The important thing is that people respond to this consultation and give the council their views.”
Robert Gellman, of Cranbourne Drive, Pinner said: “I think a lot of people down this road will welcome the review and controlled parking down here.
“During the day commuters park their cars along here and sometimes you can’t even get out of your drive because they are packed in.
“I think this review is long time coming. During the week there are about 35 to 40 cars parked along here but at weekends or holidays there are only eight to ten.”
John Collins, who lives on the same road, said: “What I hope is that the council are decisive about the policy and implement any permits for the whole road and not just part of it as that will just push the problem further up the road.”
The current CPZ operates Monday to Friday from 11am to 12pm and was the first parking zone to be introduced in the borough 20 years ago.
Public exhibitions will be taking place at Pinner Village Hall, in Chapel Lane, on Friday August 16 from 3.30pm to 6.30pm and on Saturday August 16 from 11.30am to 3.30pm.
People have until Friday August 30 to have their say on the new plans and can do so by clicking here.
