  • Ealing “Pay & Display” machines under threat

    In an earlier post, Cllr Joanna Dabrowska mentioned she has been trying to find out information from the Council if it had any intentions of removing Pay&Display machines (or equally inaptly named Pay&Park). The current count as of today, there are 196 such machines in the Borough. Council parking officers are currently deciding whether to…

  • Ealing Council’s parking department messes up

    Ealing Council’s Parking team sent out an email late last night, however, it seems that the local authority is confused and not sure what it is doing. Firstly, the communication states that residents will only be able to use the new parking system to book visitor permits for vehicles over 1.83m in width or over…

  • Gunnersbury Drive Residents – Don’t park on the front drive

    Residents on Gunnersbury Drive will be soon receiving warning letters that enforcement will start in two weeks. Local residents over the last decade or so have been occasionally parking on the section between the public highway and the pavement especially if there is more than one vehicle in the household. Call it a ‘long dropped…

  • Wolverton Gardens Residents – Did you get a PCN that wasn’t your fault?

    Whilst the headline suggests a television advert selling PPI services, it is far from it.  Cllr Joanna Dabrowska has received a few enquiries where residents have received Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs) and unsuccessfully challenged them. The following sign was erected at the end of February 2019 suspending three bays outside 1-3 Wolverton Mansions (3WM) which…

  • All Saints CPZ – update

    Cllr Joanna Dabrowska would like to update residents on the forthcoming Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) consultation. Following on from my postcard survey (link) last October/November, Cllr Dabrowska communicated the results to residents. Funds for the CPZ consultation were approved in December. As nothing was happening, Cllr Dabrowska chased up the highways engineers and nothing had been progressed.…

  • Gunnersbury Park CPZ – amendments

    Following last Spring’s shambolic introduction of the Gunnersbury Park CPZ*, there were many concerns raised by residents. CllrJoanna Dabrowska, together with a CPZ highways engineer, spent four hours last August going round the zone analysing every road, corner, road marking and parking bay, not mentioning minding the hedges. After such a hot summer, it was…

  • Ealing Council misleads whilst doubling parking prices

    Residents and visitors alike have noticed that the parking charges advertised on the Warwick Road Extension (the stretch of highway across Ealing Common) are not the fees charged when paying via RingGo (the parking app/system). As per the yellow signage it states that it costs £2.20 (plus 20p transaction fee), yet when you try to…

  • To zone or not to zone? The survey results are in!

    Thank you to residents who responded (27% response rate) to the postcard survey that Cllr Joanna Dabrowska initiated last month, primarily to ensure that taxpayer funds are not unwisely spent surrounding a potential Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) consultation. Around 250 households were surveyed on Delamere Road, Elgar Avenue and St Paul’s Close. Results were interesting…

  • CPZ Review – Zone G residents are being consulted

    It has come to Cllr Joanna Dabrowska’s attention that Ealing Council officers have forgotten to inform Ealing Common ward councillors of the Zone G CPZ Review Consultation. Whilst highways officers discussed it with Cllr Dabrowska in February, she highlighted that the zone G residents that fall within her ward don’t have an issue with the…
