Finchley Church End Proposed CPZ Changes

Overview

Barnet Council aims to tackle congestion and change travel and parking behaviour by implementing Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) areas. This consultation is concerning the Church End CPZ and we are now in the third phase of engagement (statutory consultation) where we are asking for feedback on:

  • the possible increased hours of existing CPZs
  • the Introduction of new CPZs.

Background

Back in 2017, we had a number of requests for the existing Church End CPZ to be reassessed. This went to public consultation (November 2017 to January 2018) and the findings showed that the current CPZs were not fully meeting the needs of the residents or those using the local area. As a result, we have carried out various assessments and are proposing the following:

  • Increase the existing CPZ hours of operation from Monday to Friday 2pm to 3pm to Monday to Saturday 10am and 4pm in:
  1. Dollis Park (between Regents Park Road and Church Crescent)
  2. Lichfield Grove
  3. Station Close
  4. Station Road
  5. Sylvan Avenue
  • Introduce CPZ parking controls, that would operate between the hours of 2pm and 3pm, Monday to Friday as extensions to the existing Church End CPZ in:
  1. St Mary’s Avenue
  2. Templars Crescent
  3. Lyndhurst Gardens (between Dollis Park and the access road leading to Christ’s College Playing Fields
  4. Cavendish Avenue
  5. Stanhope Avenue (between East End Road and Mountfield Road)

Please note: residents living with the area of the proposed CPZ would be required to have a resident parking permit. This will allow residents to park within any of the available resident permit holder parking bays.

Single yellow line waiting restrictions will be introduced where it is considered inappropriate or dangerous to park e.g. in front of vehicle crossovers, we are also looking to implement double yellow lines where parking would not be allowed at any time.

The proposed measures in this scheme are being advertised in the local press and London Gazette on Thursday 8 November 2018, and notices will be put up on street in the area advising of the proposed changes.
