This consultation has now closed.

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.

Give us your Views

We would like to hear your views on the proposed changes to the parking in your area. If you would like further information about how the proposed changes may affect you, or you wish to make any comments to this consultation then please do so by Thursday 6 December 2018, quoting reference number SCR253 in all correspondence by:

All comments that we receive will be formally considered before a decision is made on whether the proposal will be introduced or not. We will also use the comments to assess if the proposal needs any modification or not. Once a decision has been made we will publish the outcome on Engage Barnet.

    We Asked

    We carried out a statutory consultation on the following proposals relating to the Church End ‘CE’ Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ):

    • To introduce a CPZ operational Monday to Friday 2-3pm, as extensions to the existing Church End CPZ in St Mary’s Avenue, Templars Crescent, the northern section of Lyndhurst Gardens (between Dollis Park and the entrances to both Finchley Manor Lawn Tennis and Squash Rackets Club and Christ’s College Playing Field), Cavendish Avenue and Stanhope Avenue (between East End Road and Mountfield Road)
    • To introduce extended CPZ hours and waiting restrictions, operation Monday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm in: Dollis Park (between Regent’s Park Road and Church Crescent); Lichfield Grove (from Regent’s Park Road to Sylvan Avenue), Station Close, Station Road, and Sylvan Avenue.

    The proposals were outlined in letters being delivered to approximately 6,000 properties in the area, and notices outlining the proposals were erected in the affected streets. Similar notices were published in a local newspaper and the London Gazette.

    You said

    The feedback to the consultation, which was varied due to the nature of the different proposals, was detailed in a report that was considered by the Finchley and Golders Green Area Committee on 17 October 2019.

    We did

    Having considered the feedback to the consultation, the Finchley and Golders Green Area Committee decided that the proposed extension to the Church End ‘CE’ CPZ into Templars Crescent N3, Cavendish Avenue N3, Stanhope Avenue N3, St Mary’s Avenue N3 and Lyndhurst Gardens N3 should be introduced.

    However, in reference to the proposed amendment of the operational periods of the Church End ‘CE’ Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ), the committee decided to abandon this proposal in respect of Lichfield Grove, Station Road, Station Close and Sylvan Avenue, and to only introduce the amendments to the operational period of the Church End ‘CE’ CPZ in Dollis Park (between Regents Park Road and Church Crescent).

    Accordingly Officers sought to introduce the agreed measures, through the introduction of road markings and signage, and the making of the relevant Traffic Management Orders to come into operation on 6 April 2020, although implementation was affected by COVID-19 and the council ultimately started enforcing the new measures in June 2020.

    Details on how CPZs operate, charges and what other permits are available, on the council’s website. If you would like to apply for these or any other type of permit, you can apply online at www.barnet.gov.uk/parking or contact the council’s Parking Permit Team on 020 8359 7446.
