Why has the council got three men not abiding by the 2 meter rule, painting white lines for the CPZ?
Surely this is not a critical job that needs to continue at this time!!

Pretty outrageous under the current circumstances. Does not reflect well.

We did ask for a postponement. Southwark council just cannot hep themselves, greedy to the core.

Would be great to get a photo of this and send it to the leader of the council. I wonder if he's aware.

I really do not understand the bash the council brigade. Iím not talking about the rights or wrongs of implementing the CPZ, Iím talking about comments like the council is greedy and canít help themselves. Where do you think the money is going ? It doesnít go into councillors pockets but into public services which Southwark provides better than many.

That would be, stop housebuilding as not necessary at this time, but keep on punishing car owners. And lucky man has got off the election hook for a year. Rejoice!

A massive chunk of it goes to APCOA (Airport Parking Company of America), who deal with fees/fines etc

Southwark council is the only council in the country, and legal advice given in the lords suggests illegally, to make redundancy payments to Councillors holding Special Responsibilities when they choose to stand down from those positions or lose at an election.

So broadly you're correct. But Southwark is extraordinarily uniquely generous to some Councillors.

Looks like everyone in the effected area needs to move there cars on Monday. Utterly crazy. Not helping the isolation and must affect 100s of vehicles. Surely this can be stopped.

Great to see the parking police out in force too. Surely thatís not essential??

Tweet it with photos, if poss - flouting central government rules and risking their workers' lives

Not just workers lives but those of the police and car drivers plus wherever cars are moved too. This needs to stop in the current circumstances - but it won't.

Posted by PippaD March 27, 10:54PM

Myself and friends have contacted the council, and Southwark news,
Southwark news not responded to either tweets or mail but Southwark parking have stated that as from Monday the new CPZ will be in full effect,
Even after it was pointed out that people are struggling to pay basic bills, but they don't care!

messageRe: critical cpz line painting !!
Posted by Ontherun March 28, 09:42PM

The controlled zone is not starting on Monday, they are preparing the roads. I don't think it comes into force until 22nd May '20.
I've been amazed to see Southwark employees putting up signs and marking roads in preparation for this when we're in the midst of a pandemic but I guess some life/works are continuing as normal.

Hi we received the following email from Councillor Livingstone on Friday.

Dear Ms xxxxxx

Further to my previous email, I am writing to update you regarding the East Dulwich controlled parking zone..

In light of the current COVID-19 government advice, we have temporarily suspended the introduction of the East Dulwich CPZ until the current working restrictions are lessened. As I am sure you can appreciate, it is not possible to provide accurate timescales on when works will recommence but we will look to update all interested parties through the relevant page on the council website as soon as possible, which can be found at the following weblink:

[www.southwark.gov.uk]

Best wishes

Councillor Richard Livingstone
Labour councillor for Old Kent Road ward
Cabinet Member for Environment, Transport and the Climate Emergency

Wow! does that mean the no parking signs in Trossachs Rd so that they can finish the bits that they missed will be taken down?

"The controlled zone is not starting on Monday, they are preparing the roads. I don't think it comes into force until 22nd May '20."

Ontherun, are they painting double yellow lines? Those would come into force 24/7 as soon as they are painted.

messageRe: critical cpz line painting !!
Posted by Ontherun March 29, 05:52PM

No, no change to yellow lines. They've just added white line markings and put up the CPZ signs which were then immediately covered with bin liners.

FFS I finally got the website to accept my details and paid for the year's permit, only to find it wasn't necessary (just yet). I wonder if we'll get the unused days refunded/added on aat the end? Unlikely I guess as all parking companies are simply the worst kind of arseholes.

There is a bunch of new double yellows on Hillsboro, at least.

Please note there are two CPZs in East Dulwich but the Council names for the zones doesnít make that totally clear - one that started on 30 March and another proposed for later in the year. The Peckham West one (Oglander Road etc) started on 30 March and warning notices will be issued for an extended period. This is on the Councilís page on Coronavirus [www.southwark.gov.uk]

The CPZ that has been put on hold (Monicaís post including the email from Councillor Livingstone) is the one for Lordship Lane.

Enforcement is reduced and looking at what the Council say if you park sensibly you shouldnít get a penalty. If you park on double yellow lines, in disabled bays or on the footway you can expect a penalty. Rightly in my opinion. Restrictions have been reduced for key workers but not these. I can see they either affect traffic flow - vehicle or those with buggies or there may be blue badge holders who are not shielding or on the vulnerable list who need the disabled bays.

NB the enforcement officers might not be issuing parking tickets. If they are on duty they have to wear their uniform. The Council can redeploy them for example to make sure the 2 metre social distancing is observed in queues. Please think before you have a go at them - they are working with all the contact with the public that entails and donít have the option to work from home.

Why does the admin feel it's fine to change the title of this post without stating that it has been done?
It's a bit big Brotherly. Just say if you're doing it.
