LONDON BOROUGH OF LAMBETH

CONVERSION OF EXISTING PARKING SPACE TO LONDON CYCLE HIRE PARKING

PLACES IN CRANMER ROAD, FERNDALE ROAD, ST JOHN’S CRESCENT, SALTOUN ROAD AND SIDNEY ROAD

[Note: This notice is about providing London Cycle Hire Scheme parking places (which will accommodate docking stations for the scheme’s pedal cycles) in Cranmer Road, Ferndale Road, St John’s Crescent, Saltoun Road and Sidney Road. This will involve the removal of existing parking space to accommodate the new London Cycle Hire parking places (in other words certain existing parking spaces will be converted to London Cycle Hire Scheme parking places).]

1. NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Council of the London Borough of Lambeth on 24th January 2018 made the London Borough of Lambeth (London Cycle Hire Scheme) (Parking Places) (No. 1) Order 2018, the Lambeth (Brixton “B”) (Parking Places) (No. 1) Order 2018, the Lambeth (Stockwell) (Parking Places) (No. 1) Order 2018 and the Lambeth (Vassall “V”) (Parking Places) (No. 1) Order 2018, under sections 6, 45, 46, 49 and 124 of and Part IV of Schedule 9 to the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, as amended. The Orders will come into force on 5th February 2018.

2. The general effect of the Orders will be:

(1) to convert parts of the shared-use resident’s/business/pay and display/pay by phone parking places to London Cycle Hire parking places in the following locations (the length of the parking space that will be converted is shown in brackets in each case):

(a) in Cranmer Road, on the north side, by its junction with Brixton Road outside Cranmer House (30.5 metres);

(b) in St John’s Crescent, on the north side, by its junction with Brixton Road (22 metres);

(c) in Saltoun Road, on the north side, by its junction with Effra Road adjacent to Windrush Square (19.2 metres);

(2) to convert part of the pay and display/pay by phone parking place to a London Cycle Hire parking place in Ferndale Road, on the north side, outside Nos. 240 to 246 Ferndale Road (the length of parking space that will be converted is 22.5 metres);

(3) to convert part of the shared-use business/pay and display/pay by phone parking place to a London Cycle Hire parking place in Sidney Road, on the south side, opposite Nos. 50, 52, 54 and 56 Sidney Road (the length of parking space that will be converted is 26.5 metres).

(Note: All the London Cycle Hire parking places referred to above will be for the use of London Cycle Hire pedal cycles only.)

3. The Orders are necessary to provide parking places for docking stations for London Cycle Hire Scheme pedal cycles. The London Cycle Hire Scheme provides an important part of London’s transport network, offering a sustainable, zero emissions form of transport that is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The scheme aims to encourage users to make journeys by bicycle which will otherwise have been made by car, bus or tube. Any reduction in car use will lead to reduction in the emissions of CO2 and of local air pollutants and any reduction in the number of tube and bus journeys made will help to reduce the overcrowding on these modes of transport.

4. If you have any enquiries, please telephone the Council’s Highways Group on 020 7926 9318 or email: highways@lambeth.gov.uk.

5. A copy of each of the Orders and documents giving more detailed particulars about them (including maps) are available for inspection from 9.30 am until 4.30 pm on Mondays to Fridays inclusive (except bank/public holidays) until the last day of a period of six weeks beginning with the date on which the Orders are made, at the offices of the Council’s Highways and Enforcement Group, 5th Floor, Blue Star House, 234-244 Stockwell Road, London, SW9 9SP. To arrange inspection please telephone 020 7926 0209 or email: bpoulter@lambeth.gov.uk.

6. If any person wishes to question the validity of the Orders or of any of their provisions on the grounds that it or they are not within the powers conferred by the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, or that any requirement of that Act or of any instrument made under that Act has not been complied with, that person may, within 6 weeks from the date on which the Orders are made, apply for the purpose to the High Court.
