Resident Parking Scheme

Havering Council is looking to get your view on any parking issues within the boundary of St Helens Court.

We want to have your views on whether you would support a resident parking scheme to resolve the current issues that have been reported to us.

Please click on the image below to see a plan of the initial proposals:


This consultation will run from Monday 10 August 2020 to Sunday 20 September 2020.

If the result of this consultation indicates resident support for the proposed scheme, a “statutory Traffic Management Order” consultation will be undertaken which would include updated plans, subject to comments received during the initial consultation.


Points to note on the initial proposals:

  • The scheme would be introduced as a trial to begin with, this will allow us to monitor if the parking scheme is working as intended
  • Hours of operation of the parking zone to operate as per the streets surrounding St Helens Court, Monday – Saturday 08:00 to 18:30 (Alternative options are provided within the consultation questionnaire)
  • Show the maximum number of spaces we are able to provide without obstructing the highway
  • Double yellow lines and loading restrictions are proposed to ensure the road network around the estate is kept clear so refuse and emergency service vehicles can safely access the estate at all times
  • Double yellow lines also mean loading and unloading can take place where it is safe to do so, but will also mean these areas cannot be used for parking, especially in front of the garages and the entrances to each block
  • Dedicated disabled bays for blue badge holders, it should be noted any blue badge holder can use these parking spaces, even those who do not live on or are visiting the estate
  • Blue Badge holders will also be able to park in the permit holder parking places, whilst displaying their Blue Badge, whether or not they live on or are visiting the estate, this is in line with current parking policy across Havering
  • Shared use bays are being proposed as part of the scheme design to support the local shops nearby St Helens Court which will provide both resident and paid-for parking.

If the scheme is agreed and implemented residents will need to provide:

  • Proof of residency is required to obtain a permit, only residents living in St Helens Court are included in the proposed scheme
  • Proof the Vehicle/s are registered to the residents’ address:
  1. Permits and visitor permits are to be displayed in the vehicle and can be obtained through the Council’s website
  2. If you are a Blue Badge holder you will not need to purchase a permit for your vehicle but you will need to display your blue badge whilst parked in a permit parking place
  3. The current costs for financial year 2020/21 for resident permits are £35, £60 and £85. Motor cycles – No charge. Permit Charges are reviewed on an annual basis.
  4. If you rent and use a garage for the purpose of parking your vehicle you will not need to purchase a permit but this would mean you would not be able to park in the permit parking places during the hours of operation

The Controlled Parking Zone [CPZ] is proposed to look at improving improve the safety and environment through deterring non-residents from parking inappropriately which results in serious inconvenience to the residents living on the St Helens estate.

As we must provide a “safe environment”, inevitably, the amount of road space being parked on will reduce particularly on the roads and on the pavements. This is offset by the reduction in non-resident parking.


A Controlled Parking Zone will not:

  • Guarantee a parking space near your home or a parking space at all. The scheme will not allocate
  • Prevent all non-permit holders from parking in the zone at all times, some will take the risk although this is likely to be minimal.
  • Provide a Civil Enforcement Officer to be on patrol within the zone at all times.
  • Solve the issue of resident vehicle ownership outstripping the available parking capacity to accommodate them.

    Introduction

    The Council is continually seeking to improve the way in which it designs and delivers services to all communities across the borough as part of our commitment to promoting social inclusion. To ensure the needs of vulnerable residents are taken into account, we ask that residents in each household complete an equalities monitoring form in line with The Equality Act 2010.

    Why monitor?

    We understand that residents are protective of their personal information however The Council has a duty to collect and monitor certain information. The information collected allows us to form accurate understanding of our residents and their needs and helps us to protect them from unfair treatment. None of the data will be presented in such a way that identifies individuals, without your prior consent.

    How will issues of confidentiality be addressed?

    The information provided will be protected by The Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) that ensures that The Council and its employees protect the confidentiality of data collected from individuals. There are eight principles of the DPA that can be found at: https://www.havering.gov.uk/info/20044/council_data_and_spending/139/data_protection 

    Do I have to complete the form?

    Completion of the form is optional and there are no penalties for not providing equality information.
