Bowes East Controlled Parking Zone

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

Overview

Some residents have expressed a wish for a permit parking scheme in this area in recent years. This includes a large petition submitted by residents of Tottenhall Road.

Similar streets to the south in Haringey benefit from existing weekday parking controls operating from 11am to 1pm. Weekday controls are also found in similar Enfield streets west of Green Lanes. Adding zonal controls to the five ‘ladder roads’ between Green Lanes and Wolves Lane will help give parity with surrounding streets.

A permit system will improve parking options for those living in the area by deterring parking by daily commuters or by drivers from surrounding roads seeking to avoid permit charges in their own streets. Permit controls can also bring better balance to local parking arrangements.

Permit prices:

The current annual permit prices are shown below. The prices would be doubled for a zone that operated all day, rather than just a few hours.

Please note that the Council is currently considering changing the way that it charges for permits, proposing that they relate to CO2 emissions rather than engine size.

Permits are and will remain free to blue badge holders.

What is being proposed

The Controlled Parking Zone is proposed to operate from 11am to 1pm on weekdays to match the controls in place on streets to the south. The likely layout of bays is shown on the accompanying plan.

Bike hangers:

When adding permit controls to the 10 streets west of Green Lanes in 2018, the Council added a bike hanger for each street to offer similar help to those who travel by cycle. Demand for bike spaces has since grown to match the capacity provided and the overall scheme has been well-received. Hangers can store 6 cycles but take up less space than a standard car.

  • Why is this needed?


    Some residents have expressed a wish for a permit parking scheme in this area in recent years. This includes a large petition submitted by residents of Tottenhall Road.

    Similar streets to the south in Haringey benefit from existing weekday parking controls operating from 11am to 1pm. Weekday controls are also found in similar Enfield streets west of Green Lanes. Adding zonal controls to the five ‘ladder roads’ between Green Lanes and Wolves Lane will help give parity with surrounding streets.

    A permit system will improve parking options for those living in the area by deterring parking by daily commuters or by drivers from surrounding roads seeking to avoid permit charges in their own streets. Permit controls can also bring better balance to local parking arrangements.



    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, reflecting 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. 

    Parking controls are proposed to operate from 11am to 1pm on weekdays to match the controls in place on streets to the south. The likely layout of bays is shown on the accompanying plan.
