  • 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…

    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.

  • 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.

    Last month, an Ealing resident has set up a petition against the Labour Administration’s Transport Strategy that came through Cabinet on 5th June, specifically, against the CPZ charging hierarchy and the introduction of the shared use bays allowing commuters, holidaymakers, etc to park in some CPZ bays. The petition blurb reads as follows: Withdraw its…

  • Attention: Delamere Road, Elgar Ave, St Paul’s Close and Zone D CPZ residents

    Many residents have approached Cllr Joanna Dabrowska about the commuter and holidaymaker parking in the Delamere Road, Elgar Avenue and St Paul’s Close area.

  • Gunnersbury Park CPZ shambles – the sequel
