Broadway Area Parking Review


7 August 2017

Broadway area parking restrictions phase 1 come into effect 21 August (although we’re told the new restrictions won’t be enforced immediately). Letters will go out to residents on August 7th.

More  (Read 'Epping Forest Amendment 5').

LRA has been pressing for residents to be offered these proposals for ten years –they have only got this far because LRA Cllr Chris Pond has fought so doggedly for them! Although the results won’t be perfect, we hope that residents will gain some respite from commuter parking. The proposals cover the roads NEPP considers to be worst-affected – phase 2 should follow in around a year, and should include Langston Road, which has been dropped from the phase 1 restrictions.

Resident Parking LRA has been pressing for these proposals for ten years –they have only got this far because LRA Cllr Chris Pond has fought so doggedly for them! We hope that residents will support the proposals – they won’t be perfect, but given  NEPP’s huge backlog of requests for parking reviews, they represent the only chance in the foreseeable future for residents to gain some respite from commuter parking. Street notices start going up today and there’ll be a letter drop to residents in the area covered by the scheme (which will include the permit prices). The proposals cover the roads NEPP considers to be worst-affected – phase 2 should follow in around a year.

There are details available for roads in and around Rectory Lane, Colson RoadTorrington Drive and Oakwood Hill.


The next step is for residents to give their comments – please do copy us in

These proposals are separate from the scheme for off-street parking bays in Torrington Drive that some residents have heard about from the District Council. The Council’s Area Housing Manager has suggested it might be sensible to make the same 48 permit available for these off-street parking bays as for the newly-proposed on-street bays, but this is only an indication at present -we await further details.
