Sutton Council will soon publish an update on its parking strategy proposals having almost analysed all the feedback from residents who took up the call to have their say on parking proposals.
The strategy seeks to take a cross-borough view of parking options and future-proof Sutton’s parking availability to avoid a crisis in kerb space in the future.
Last year the council held a series of consultation and engagement events with residents in the phase 1 consultation area, which included St Helier, The Wrythe & Wandle Valley and Sutton Local areas, parts of Carshalton Central, Sutton South and Belmont and Walllington North.
Cllr Manuel Abellan, chair of Sutton Council’s Environment and Neighbourhood Committee, said as part of that engagement activity the council had received thousands of comments from local residents wanting to have their say on parking.
The publication will be followed by a further series of engagement events where residents will have a final chance to hear about the revised proposals.
The initial consultation on parking in the next phase – the area of South Sutton, Cheam and Belmont, Carlshalton and Clockhouse – closed on March 3 and officers are reviewing the feedback to that consultation with a plan to publish next steps in due course.
