A task for our new Mayor of London
Please someone, remind me, are we in the 21st century? Does a London council need to be told what a Bank Holiday is in relation to parking restrictions?
This absurd non-joined up parking system which can result in one side of a road having one set of rules and the other side, a totally conflicting and differing set, has to end.
Mr Mayor, please take hold of this and do the following:
Create a uniform set of rules across ALL London boroughs
Set an Inner and Outer London Resident Parking Permit Fee
Permit short stay in other resident zones (say an hour) if you are in possession of a current resident permit
Create a uniformity to fines
Bring parking enforcement back under the auspices of the Met Police, making use of PCSO’s and TOCU to enforce rules and regulations
Once central query/information point across all London boroughs to deal with bay restrictions/suspensions, working in conjunction with TfL Streets
A full audit of roadside restriction signs and curbside markings, so that all restrictions are clear and legal, repainting and replacing signs as and where required
This is the start… I am sure that there are many other ideas which you can all contribute which would make this a good idea!
