Cedars Road Controlled Parking Zone

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Overview

In response to a petition from residents, we are consulting on the idea of a permit parking scheme (or Controlled Parking Zone) for the Cedars Road area.

A CPZ is an area where residents are given parking priority over other drivers through a permit system, with permits only available for residents living within the zone. There is a charge for permits, which is currently based on vehicle engine size and the operational hours of the CPZ.

These charges are currently under review, with a proposal that we move to charges based on vehicle emissions rather than engine size. Further details of this proposal can be found at https://new.enfield.gov.uk/consultations/2020-12-11-residents-tariffs-in-controlled-parking-zones-cpzs/


Please view the following documents via the document library to the right of the page:


1) Scheme leaflet

2) Permit Information Overview


Why We Are Consulting

Before we commence the formal legal process, we want to make sure that residents still support the idea of a CPZ and, if they do, whether the controls should apply for just part of the day (up to four hours) or all day (typically 8am to 6:30pm).


Comments must reach us in writing by 22nd January 2021, and can be submitted:


a) Via the survey on this consultation page

b) By email to traffic@enfield.gov.uk

c) By letter sent to the Civic Centre and marked for attention of 'Traffic Team' quoting Ref: CRCPZ

  • Why is this needed?


    The community has reported problems in these roads due to scarce on-street parking space being

    occupied by residents of other nearby homes who have alternative parking but chose to park on street

    to avoid privately-operated permit charges. In addition, should new homes be built in the

    area (such as on the site at the end of Cedars Road), they could be excluded from the controlled

    parking zone, helping to ensure that on-street space is retained for existng residents.

    Permit controls for the on-street spaces in Cedars Road and the western end of Highfield Road will

    therefore offer be􀀪er balance to local parking arrangements and give priority to the existng

    households directly adjacent.



    How will it help?


    A CPZ is an area where residents are given parking priority over other drivers through a permit

    system. Permits can only be purchased for vehicles registered to homes within the boundary line.

    A permit system encourages residents within the zone to dispose of, or store elsewhere, vehicles

    they seldom use. It discourages any given household from storing excessive numbers of vehicles on

    the street and favours owners of smaller cars, reflectng that they take up less space. The overall

    effect is to free up more space for those vehicles that are in regular use by households and to

    provide more gaps for occasional kerbside events, such as grocery deliveries.
