CPZ for Clifden Road?
Fellow Labour Blogger Stuart Bruce http://www.stuartssoapbox.com/2006/06/new_labour_blog.html
has rightly chided me for not using this site to interact with my constituents in Chatham Ward, London Borough of Hackney.
Well here goes - apologies to anyone expecting every one of my posts to be highly controversial and about national Labour Party issues - normal service will resume shortly.
The big issue in the bit of my ward north of the Homerton Hospital (Clifden Road etc) is parking - local residents find it really hard to park outside their own homes because of pressure from cars of hospital patients & staff. I'm introducing a deputation of local residents on this issue at Full Council on 28 June.
If any residents of that patch - or indeed hospital users who park there - would like to say what they think on this issue please post a comment below - are you in favour of a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) where residents would pay an annual fee but non-residents would not be able to park there? or do you disagree with a CPZ? what can the hospital do to help the Council address the problem - e.g. through a green travel plan, park & ride scheme or similar? what is your experience of parking in the area or if a non-resident, travelling to the hospital?
