Strongly against at this point in time we need to see what impact East london line phase 2 has on the parking situation first as a number of the vehicles are coming from the direction of East Dulwich and beyond proven by which local 'no through' roads are fully occupied and which ones have capacity (wont mention road names however I expect that locals are aware of the roads with/without issues).

Although it is started out a low cost, other areas prove that it keeps going up therefore its not the starting price that bothers me, its the cost in 10yrs unless of course they are willing to provide a fixed price for 10yrs.

Both the articles below show what has happened in other areas:

I think we should wait and see the situation after ELL2 and if parking is still an issue then we look at CPZ. My fear is we implement a CPZ around the same time as ELL2 (due to completed this year) and it turns out that the number of cars parking is reduced meaning that we are stuck with the cost without much of a benefit.

Lastly there will be an impact to the local high street and i know one solution is to have CPZ controlled hours of say 11-12 to stop the commuters however its another consideration that needs to be fed in.

I live on one of the worst affected roads and as a home worker who visits clients i appreciate that when i return during the day that finding a parking spot is a nightmare however we are too close to a major piece of transport to make this decision particulalry when you look at the impact of ELL which created some of the parking issues.

Just ny thoughts
