An update from the Penge and Cator councillors on their work:

A controlled parking zone in roads around Penge East Station is being introduced, following community consultation.

As residents in the roads affected will already be aware, the rollout of the controlled parking zone by the Council has not gone smoothly. There have been various issues including charges within pay and display bays, incorrect signage and enforcement times.

Acting on complaints from affected residents, we raised these problems with officers and we were able to get the Leader of the Council to put a hold on the implementation until they are corrected. He has also agreed that charges for permits will only begin when the adjusted scheme comes into force.

The council have apologised for the mix up and we continue to feed in the concerns of residents.

Cllrs Kathy Bance, Kevin Brooks and Peter Fookes
