In March 2022, the council surveyed the Chislehurst Town Centre area bounded by the Pound in the south, The High Street / Red Hill to the west, Barham Road to the north and Green Lane to the east. The survey sought views on the possible introduction of a controlled parking zone (CPZ) Q. The council distributed 700 letters and received 178 responses constituting a 25 percent response rate.

The results showed that 77percent (126) of respondents said they think the council should introduce a CPZ in the area.

However, following the consultation, ward councillors advised of other roads in the vicinity that are also experiencing parking challenges. The council investigated the concerns and agreed to include these roads (outside the previous consultation area) at this preliminary design consultation stage.

The council proposes to progress by introducing a CPZ. If most respondents favour controls, the zone will be called CPZ U instead of CPZ Q. The zone is proposed to operate between Monday to Saturday, 8.30am to 6.30pm.

Proposed area of CPZ U plan

Resident permits would cost £100 (per annum) because of the operational duration of the zone. Visitor permits would cost £55 (per book of 15).

Consultation letters are being sent to selected residents, inviting them to respond to the proposals. Find out more about controlled parking zones - Controlled parking zone (CPZ) – London Borough of Bromley

The consultation closes on Sunday 11 December 2022.
