Parking review launched to protect parking for local communities. 

A parking review has been launched by Havering Council to ask households and businesses on how best to protect their parking. 

The council will be consulting in the following areas:

  • Elm Park
  • Hylands
  • Romford
  • Rainham
  • Emerson Park
  • Gidea Park
  • Hornchurch
  • Upminster
  • Harold Wood

The council will also be engaging and talking to businesses, in particular the Hornchurch and Upminster areas.

Councillor Osman Dervish, Havering’s Cabinet Member for Environment, said:

We know many households and businesses experience problems parking near their homes and business properties. With the introduction of CrossRail and a new C2C connection, we expect this to become worse. 

To find out more about these issues and look at the best solutions, we have launched our parking review consultation in nine areas around the borough from which we have heard have the most problems. 

This will also offer us a clearer picture of the whole borough. It is important that we listen and really know what residents think is the best way to protect their parking. 

These solutions could cover anything from new Controlled Parking Zones (CPZs), additional yellow lines, new parking bays, or even making no change at all.

We are also listening to the views of businesses, especially in Hornchurch and Upminster, who have expressed concerns about the end of free parkingWhen this has finished, we will publish the results and once again ask these households and businesses if they are happy with the proposed solutions.’

The consultation will run until midnight on Friday 22 November and can be found here:

Paper copies will also be available across libraries in the nine areas from next week.

    After doing the consultation online I realise that, as usual with Havering Council, this is not a consultation but a controlled survey with pre asked questions and there is no way you can put your point of view about to loss off 30 minutes free parking and the expensive cost of parking in Havering.

      Parking too high, free 30 minutes should be resumed, for locals who just need to collect prescriptions, visit dentists etc.,

    This consultation will be like all the others this administration run. They will ask question that give them the answers they want and not what residents need. This is a total sham.

    This is not a consultation it’s simply a survey.

    Absolutely no mention of returning the free 30 minutes which is basically what residents want!

    So underhand.
