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.

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.
