Thomas, you are missing the fundamental point (again).

Everyone who lives in Grove Park knows all too well that

1. There is a significant parking problem.
2. Commuters park in GP roads.
3. Long term holiday makers use GP as a free car park.
4. Most residents cannot park outside their house
5. (the exception to this is Park and Staveley Roads, who have always been able to park in their driveways, of course).

Despite everyone knowing all this, the vast majority of local residents STILL DO NOT WANT CPZ. The thought of the ugly signage, road markings, prowling parking enforcers, and additional street furniture is appalling for many who value the trees and the unspoiled look of our local area. They know that a CPZ will significantly REDUCE the number of parking spaces available. And one only has to peruse the "where's my permit" threads here to see what a damnable nightmare a CPZ brings in terms of dealing with Serco and the Council Parking office.

You, and many others look at all this and say "But a CPZ is the only sensible solution". That's fair enough, that's your view.

But the last time residents of Grove Park were asked their opinion, over 90% of them, despite knowing all too well the problems we have with traffic and parking, STILL said they don't want any CPZ.

It's not only about cars and parking. There are other aesthetic factors which mean a lot to most residents, and mean absolutely nothing to LBH (witness the wheelie bin fiasco).

It might be OK if you live in Lampton Road, which frankly looks like a depressing Stalinist prison camp anyway, but if you live in a beautiful place like Grove Park (I am looking out of my window right now, along a lovely line of trees), it is a travesty to impose all this ugliness on residents in the interests of compliance.
