Question

Given your election pledges to outer London, why is the consultation about the red route parking and loading bay designation in North Cheam and Stonecot Hill in Sutton taking so long? When will it be finished, as the red route traffic patrols continue to harm the already fragile trading of shops by over zealous policing of recessed bays or adjoining side roads which have no impact on the free flow of traffic?

TfL is discussing with Paul Burstow MP and a number of traders the parking and loading arrangements on Stonecot Hill. No specific proposals for change have thus far been developed and so no consultation has been held. TfL has already had initial discussions with Paul and the traders and intend to follow these up in the next month. TfL prefers to encourage compliance with parking controls and will be discussing its enforcement of the restrictions on Stonecot Hill with the traders.
