Controlled Parking Zone expansion

From Monday 9th July the Clock House Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) was officially extended to include Belmont Road, part of Clock House Road, Hampden Avenue, Hampden Road, Colesburg Road, Balgowan Road and Cromwell Avenue.

Despite the fact that the school is a council tax payer and a key part of the local community no one from the Council consulted with the school about the CPZ or officially informed us of its extension. Balgowan was unable to offer feedback during the consultation period as we were unaware that it was occurring.

There was no contact with the school from the council until a local resident told us in March 2012 about the council’s Environment Committee meeting on 28th February when the extension to the CPZ was agreed.

The report from Paul Nevard, the traffic engineer, dated 28th February 2012 does not mention the school at all but does include data on the responses from residents. This report provided the local information for the Environment Committee when the decision to extend the CPZ was taken.

Below are the letter and update letter about the CPZ sent out via ParentMail. If you would like to express your concerns about the CPZ, the people to contact at the Council are listed in both of these letters.
