Survey on proposed CPZ in Dulwich Village

In common with other areas in Southwark which do not yet have a CPZ, Dulwich Village residents are being asked for their views on the details of the CPZ, such as hours of operation, but not on the principle of whether they want a CPZ at all.

As a Residents Association, we want to know whether you want a CPZ on your road or not, so that we can represent you.

The survey is now closed.

  1. The supporting arguments seem to be solely that the rest of Southwark has CPZs & that it will be a money-maker. I have not consulted the underlying legislation but it hardly seems likely that this is sufficient in the absence of demonstrated need for parking restrictions.

  2. There doesn’t need to be a cpz in the village. It is not heavily used for commuter parking and there isn’t difficulty finding a space, at any time. Introducing a cpz would only further limit access for visitors and reduce takings in local shops and services. It seems an odd thing to do when trying to retain and thriving shopping/eating destination. Mss as my people come in the daytime, often with children or the elderly and this will further reduce access after the existing timed closures.

  3. And all because they want to cut the number of cars on the road. Is it not already too late? When the floods and fires come, those with cars parked in their driveways (exempt from charges) will not be able to get away from danger because of the horde of little people hobbling, scooting, running, pushing wheelchairs, guiding little children on wobbly bikes trying to make an exit too.
    When council members wear blinkers there will be unforeseen consequences.

  4. Do not believe cpz is needed. It will impact viability of local businesses which could well further damage community and limit amenities for local residents. The lack of consultation on need is undemocratic. The LTN is already penalising car users. A CPZ will restrict who can access Dulwich to the wealthy either able to afford to live locally or pay for parking. What are carers or traders supposed to do?

  5. Living in Pickwick Road and having endured our sole being stolen, my position on this is that having access to parking near to my home would be an advantage.

  6. There seems to be no problems generally about parking for residents or customers using the local shops except in exceptional circumstances if say there is an event in Dulwich Park. Imposing parking charges for residents and others using local shops/amenities seems to be another way for an indirect tax to be levied on car users by Southwark Council. It is yet another financial burden to be placed upon households.

  7. This is just another cash cow for Southwark. The proposed charges they have published will be increased without warning after a year two just like the charge for emptying the garden waste bin.
    Most of DV has double white lines anyway. The businesses and restaurants do not want people to be discouraged from visiting the area, the money raised by fines from the cameras have not been used for keeping the roads in good condition, they are full of potholes No more charges please

  8. While controlled parking outside shops in the north Dulwich area is obviously needed to ensure fair time to pop into the shops, (apart from sorting the first hour problems and signage) there is no need for a blanket CPZ as may roads simply don’t need it. The lack of offering a ‘No’to so called consultation is appalling and probably illegal.
