Coppermill CPZ Consultation – Elmfield asked to review their decision

Some residents on the street are a little confused about the recent letter sent out by the council saying they are carrying out “further consultation” regarding the introduction of a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) in the area.

The letter explains:

“Following .. the recent consultation proposing to introduce [a CPZ] in your area we are writing to inform you of the decision to carry out an additional consultation with certain streets…”

It goes on to give the results of the consultation – 51% did not support the introduction of a CPZ, 49% did.

 It then goes on to say “the council has approved the … CPZ … only in the streets who voted in favour for parking controls.”

This has confused people, as many thought the consultation was about a CPZ “in our area”, not our individual street(s).  People were fully aware that the introduction of parking controls in adjacent streets might have an effect on streets that don’t implement a CPZ.

Some on the street also felt they didn’t receive the same letter as their neighbours.

Whether in favour or not of the CPZ, it would seem an odd way of going about a consultation, as people feel the ‘goalposts have been changed’.

Some on the street want to get together, possibly with people in surrounding streets, to discuss this further. Let us know if you’d like to meet up.
