CONCERNS ABOUT LOCAL PARKING – URGENT UPDATE!
We have now learnt that the joint letter by HLSI and the Highgate Society, has not persuaded Camden Council to postpone the Traffic Management Order. The TMO is now in place and the three-week consultation period has begun. Objections to the proposals will be accepted until 28 February.
For the full proposal, click on this link – https://www.camden.gov.uk/documents/20142/0/HIGHGATE+CPZ+REVIEW+-+PUBLISHED+7+FEBRUARY+2019.pdf/e64a390e-0da6-da2f-9795-c3d6eb54d0c9?version=1.0
The streets whose parking hours would be affected are:
Bisham Gardens, Highgate High Street, Highgate Hill (from Dartmouth Park Hill northwards), Highgate West Hill (from South Grove to the High Street), Pond Square, South Grove, Swains Lane (between South Grove and Bisham Gardens) and The Grove.
Please see the Highgate Society website for the case for Camden to consider all parties: residents, regular visitors, businesses and other organisations, such as HLSI – https://www.highgatesociety.com.
What you can do
Naturally, we all wish HLSI to be as easily accessible to all, however they travel. In particular, those attending classes – usually two hours long – may wish to consider the length of parking time to be allowed, should the surrounding streets have day-long parking restrictions.
If you feel these proposals will affect you, and your use of HLSI, whether you are a resident or not, we encourage you to contact Camden. Remember: these need to be received by 28 February.
This can be done via this address: firstname.lastname@example.org
