Opinions Sought Over Olympic Parking Plan

Live or own a business in Southfields? They want to hear from you.....

Business owners and residents in Southfields are being invited to comment on a temporary parking restriction proposal, which is planned to last for more than six weeks next year when Wimbledon hosts two tennis tournaments.

The London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) is proposing to introduce a parking protection zone in parts of Southfields and West Hill wards to operate from the start of Wimbledon, on June 25, until the end of the Olympic tennis event on August 6.

The planned zone, which would be in operation from 8.30am to 9.30pm Monday to Sunday, would cover the existing CPZ around Replingham Road and extend across to Wimbledon Parkside, covering Augustus Road and Victoria Drive.

LOCOG’s parking protection zone aims to provide a safe and secure environment around the venue, keep the traffic moving and prioritise parking for local people.

LOCOG has written to business owners and residents in the area inviting them to make initial comments on the plan before December 4. It will publish a summary of responses on the London 2012 website.

There will then be a formal consultation on the measures between December 22, 2011, and January 19, 2012.

Anyone wishing to comment can email wandsworthparking@london2012.com, call 0800 0111 300 or write to Freepost Traffic and Parking Enquiry.
