Answer for Parking in shopping areas

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response received 18 July 2012

Written response from the Mayor The Manifesto call for boroughs to review parking in non-residential, strategic shopping areas was highlighted within the 2013/14 LIP Annual Spending Guidance that was issued by TfL to all boroughs on 1st June 2012. I therefore expect boroughs to set out how they intend to address this within their 2013/14 plans, which are due to be submitted to TfL in October 2012.

I have also asked TfL to produce good practice guidance on this issue to help boroughs identify how parking can be effectively managed to reduce any negative impact on businesses. This guidance will be available in the New Year to assist boroughs who are undertaking reviews in 2013/14.
