Changes to residents parking at Stanmore Hill
We the undersigned petition the council to change the conditions of existing residents parking on Stanmore Hill, Hill Close and Halsbury Close.
Currently the residents permit parking bays on Stanmore Hill run from 8am - 6.30pm Monday to Saturday. However they are shared with pay and display customers. Outside of these times anyone can park. Side roads have restrictions that allow only permit holding residents to park between 3-4pm Mon-Sat in order to prevent non residents parking all day.
In the past few years traffic and parking issues have substantially increased on Stanmore Hill. School drop of and pick up, increased development of commercial and residential sites with no off street parking, the Abercorn restaurant all create a huge demand for parking. A second restaurant at 101 Stanmore Hill is opening in July 2021 (with no onsite parking), and the development of the synagogue and flats at 65 Stanmore Hill will significantly increase visitors to the area who need to park. Due to the very nature of the age and listed status of many properties in the conservation area, many do not have driveways. Although paying Harrow Council for parking many residents are finding it increasingly difficult to park anywhere near to our homes.
In light of continuing development on Stanmore Hill residents would like the following:
- Parking bays to be made 'Residents Only' between 6.30pm - 8am and all day Sunday
- Additional 'residents only' parking bays
- 3-4pm restrictions on side roads to have additional similar restrictions added in the morning
