A good result for Forest Gate North.

      What is the point in RPZ all they do is push the parking to the next area.. Man up Newham residents and stand against this money making scheme, How many times have you see street after street almost empty. .I Newham was really democratic “an overly used word at times” make the the whole borough RPZ and makei us all a universal permit . Also get your finger out and get West Ham and Canning Town included in Zone 2

    Martin (Warne !) . Why, as a Green Party sympathiser (although maybe Ellie, Rachel. and Seyi voter ?), — do you not support RPZ’s ?

      I’m not sure how an RPZ would reduce car use. In fact, the harder it is for people to park the more they have to drive around looking for a space!

      But on a more serious note I have two main objections.

      The first is that they don’t really solve the problem, they just shift it somewhere else. If people can’t park on my street they’ll park on someone else’s. And then when that street gets an RPZ, the problem moves on again. Where does it stop? Once the whole of Newham is covered in RPZs what do we do? Pave over Wanstead Flats and turn it into a giant car park?

      The second objection is that I don’t trust the council not to turn parking permits into a serious revenue stream. Right now the first car is free for any home in an RPZ, but there are no guarantees that will continue. Neighbouring boroughs charge for the first car and it won’t be long before Sir Robin follows suit. He’s promised not to raise council tax and the money’s got to come from somewhere. Although council tax isn’t particularly progressive, it is at least banded. Parking charges are regressive and hit the poorest hardest. I’d rather Sir Robin did the politically honest thing and raised council tax.

      I hope that answers your question.

      with best regards,

    I am for the rpz system. When I park on other roads I have to pay. Every residing house owner should have a space near his residence.
