Following support from residents we're pleased to share that the CPZ around the Bonnington Square area will be extended to be overnight.

Residents have argued for some time the CPZ needs to be reviewed and expanded overnight so that visitors to the clubs and bars around Vauxhall can’t park on these residential streets – which is resulting in anti social behaviour.  Not only this but there are concerns around criminal activity due to people being able to park away from the more overlooked Vauxhall cross itself.

Jack, Claire and myself, as Oval Councillors, have lobbied hard on this issue – the delay has not been due to lack of willing but more that there’s a £30k cost for CPZ consultations which wasn’t available in parking’s budget.  As you are aware the Council is having to make exceptionally difficult budget cuts at the moment.

So we are pleased to share that our request regarding a CPZ review on the grounds of community safety was considered and capital has now been allocated to take this forward.  I thank Cllr Jenny Brathwaite, Cabinet lead for Parking, for her support in looking at our request as separate to the issue of reviewing CPZs as a result of parking stress.

An Experimental Traffic Order will be introduced before April next year. It will last for 18 months – at the end of which we would have to decide whether to permanently extend the CPZ hours. 

Extended controlled parking zone for the Bonnington Square area

After years of campaigning to improve Vauxhall Cross and remove the gyratory, TfL are consulting on proposals for improving Vauxhall Cross and getting rid of the gyratory until 2nd January.

Leaflets should be coming (or have already come) through your door if you live in the area, you can find some at local libraries and GP’s - we would urge everyone to get involved and let your voices be heard.

Pretty much everyone we speak to who lives or works in this area agrees that Vauxhall deserves a better town centre rather than a dangerous motorway running around a good transport interchange – people want a more pleasant public realm, a safer place for cyclists and more shops for lunchtime or after work, as well as  opportunities for new local shops to start up. Of course the transport interchange will stay but we want to make sure that people have a reason to visit and stay in Vauxhall as well!

Transport for London are committed to keeping the bus stops clustered together which is a really positive step and the Council is committed to ensuring that local residents and businesses get a say in how the detail and design is worked out over the next year.
