    You say this but, if buses and tubes weren't so good the traffic would be a nightmare for ones Bentley.

    Public transport is of significant benefit for the people who don't use it too.

    well yes, the first to use that exact phrase perhaps, as part of a post which reflected that discussing CPZs "brings out some odd passions", but that was long after you'd started banging on about how dreadful the "self-interested justifications for car ownership" of other people are. How very dare they figure out what they want for themselves.

    You'll be pleased to know I'm unlikely to be anywhere near U75 today, so you can carry on telling people that you know best and that what you want is what they should want, if only they'd bin their own self-interest.

    We've just had a letter about a consultation on a new CPZ (between Brixton Hill and Tulse Hill) but the consultation period appears to be less than two weeks, which is a bit crap. Response rate bound to be tiny

    There have been meetings/consultations etc. on this for months now. The leaflet (if it's the same one I got) show 58% in favour, 35% opposed iirc.

    I think this is the final formal consultation for planning purposes.

    Yep, there was an extensive survey document sent out about it a few months ago - maybe longer. There are notices up around Archbishops Place saying its being implemented.

    Yeah, got the earlier one. But the proposals appear to have changed slightly and a two week window for people to respond is crap - particularly when its around the Easter holiday.

    Getting a bigger response rate is surely helpful in giving the final result better credibility. I'm in favour of it anyway.

    I'm in favour of it... We don't even have a car, but the commuters circling every morning looking for parking is annoying... Especially annoying is the woman who works for Lambeth who sits in her car for an hour with the motor running watching youtube

    The leaflet posted to all in Vassall area and Brixton Hill for the two schemes are the result of the previous consultations and as Crispy says this is now the formal consultation prior to implementation.

    Proposed controlled parking zone Vassall area | Lambeth Council
    Brixton Hill controlled parking zone consultation | Lambeth Council

    The shortness of the consultation period is a problem but they are still open to suggestions.

    The informal consultation was flawed to a degree in that the choices for the hours of operation were limited and exclusive
    You could choose for all day ie 8:30 to 18:30 but not for just until 17:30 - if you chose that option you could not express any preference for a shorter period. If you chose 4 hours or 2 hour - it was one or the other.

    This is the result from appendix F of the Vassall consultation just for the new "V" zone

    They only had 351 responses from 8910 households so 50.1% is 176 of them opting for all day where 18.8% + 26.5% = 45.3% is 159

    This means the decision to go for all day restrictions was down to 17 households out of 8910 (and 16 people didn't respond to the question!)

    I would prefer a 2 hour or 4 hour restriction like the Herne Hill area.

    Also there should be some more provision for cycles and motor cycles Perhaps more spaces near the parks and local businesses for short period free parking.

    Please write to Richard Lancaster, Jenny Brathwaite and the CPZ Consultation if you do want changes - it doesn't take many people to have an effect
