Minutes:

RESOLVED:  To note the receipt of the following petitions which were referred to the Corporate Director of Community for consideration:

 

1.            A Petition presented by a resident on behalf of residents in Grimsdyke and Hillview Roads and Hallam Gardens, containing 94 signatures, with the following terms of reference:

 

‘Every day there are severe parking issues in these roads mainly due to non resident parking and the school traffic to Grimsdyke School

Non resident are parking their cars and walking to Hatch End Station Local business workers are parking there rather than using the local car park.

 

These roads are the only access point for hundreds of other residents in Colborn, Sylvia, Derwent and Lyndon Ave, hence the major congestion which residents endure every day.  Grimsdyke school have increased their pupil intake and this has caused further congestion.

 

Residents are really worried about the Health and Safety issues as emergency vehicles are having great difficulty in accessing these roads due to the indiscriminate parking.

 

The residents look forward to the council acting on their concerns.’

 

2.            A Petition presented by Councillor Nitin Parekh on behalf of residents in Methuen road, Chandos Crescent, Milford Close, Edgware, HA8, and containing 79 signatures, with the following terms of reference:

 

‘We the undersigned, are concerned about the impact of new parking restrictions imposed by Harrow Council on our roads.  We strongly object to the timing and days of operation of the parking restrictions of 8.30 am to 8.30 pm Monday to Saturday.  This is causing serious problems to residents, guests, carers and other service providers to the residents of these roads.  We request Harrow Council to urgently review the timing and days of operation of the parking restrictions on our roads.’

 

3.            A Petition presented by Councillor Nitin Parekh on behalf of residents In Penylan Place, and containing 13 signatures, with the following terms of reference:

 

‘This petition has been set up to ask Harrow Council to include our road, Penylan Place, in the nearby residents parking zone, or to set up restricted parking hour windows during the working day (Monday-Friday).’

 

4.            A Petition presented by Councillor Sarah Butterworth, on behalf of residents of Weighton Road, containing 35 Signatures, with the following terms of reference:

 

‘We, the undersigned, being residents of Weighton Road, ask that the Council remove the ‘no Right Turn’ into the High Road.

 

Along with the NRT out of Waitrose, this has caused a great deal of inconvenience and has put extra pressure on the mini roundabout at Long Elmes.

 

We would also request better enforcement of the no parking on the double yellow lines as there are often up to 5 or 6 cars parked on them.  This is very dangerous as cars turning left from the High Road have to go on the wrong side of the road and are not able to see if someone is coming down the road.  If so, they can be left sticking out into the High Road until that vehicles reverses to let them in.  The grass verges and bollards from the High Road to the back of the shops are also inconvenient, especially for the dustmen.’

 

5.            A Petition presented by Councillor David Perry on behalf of traders in Marlborough Ward, containing 167 signatures, with the following terms of reference:

 

‘This is in reference to the J CPZ that has been introduced.  We wish to inform on the severe impact that it is having on our business, and also the fact that a number of our customers have been ticketed.  The start of the zone is at the corner and easily missable.  The sign only shows a loading restriction, and the road itself has a single yellow line.  We would please request that the zone be revered to tis old restrictions allowing us to conduct our business as before.  It would only take the start of the zone to be moved to where the Pay and Display machines is situated.’

 

6.            A Petition presented by Councillors Phillip O’Dell and Natasha Proctor, on behalf of residents of Gordon Road, Wealdstone, containing 53 signatures, with the following terms of reference:

 

‘We, the undersigned, call upon Harrow Council to urgently carry out a review of the Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) in our area as it is increasingly difficult to park in the evenings.’
