As we approach the 2016/17 football season, and possibly more pressure on parking at weekends in the FCARA area, Tower Hamlets Council has decided to consult on new restrictions in Zone B (see map). The consultation includes the areas that are likely to be most affected by an influx of supporters looking for somewhere to park within walking distance of the Olympic Stadium. Our own Zone B2 has also witnessed a large number of new developments which despite ‘car free agreements’ put pressure on parking outside current hours. The proposed hours for Zone B are Monday to Saturday from 7:30am to 10pm, and Sunday 11am to 4pm.
The record of the council decision can be found on its website (see paragraph 3.16).
Council officers have also agreed to undertake a site visit on 10 September 2016 at 3pm to see the parking issues in our area for themselves. This date is significant as it is West Ham’s first home game in September 2016 following the summer holidays. So please make sure you add this date to your diary.
