Save our Car Park

Dear Norwood Green Residents,

 

Some of you may have already seen the new sign into the car park opposite St Mary’s Church ‘Verona Terrace Car Park’, and some of you may have already made enquiries about it.

 

This is one of the Council assets identified to be marketed and disposed on the open market for various purposes including for possible residential development.

 

“Verona Terrace car park identified for disposal as it is relatively small and used informally not on a charged for basis”

 

“Verona Terrace car park, Norwood Green, Southall – The car park is currently not enforced by Parking Services and no income is generated from the site, The Council pays to maintain the car park. The parking on this site could be accommodated as on-street parking. The site is suitable for some small-scale residential development.”

 

“In the case of Verona Terrace Car Park, it is the assessment of the service that users of the facility can have their needs met through on-street car parking and therefore there are no anticipated differential impacts on equality groups arising from the proposal to dispose of this facility.”

 

More details can be found on the London Borough of Ealing’s website, alternatively click here.

 

This is obviously going to impact on all of us with regards to parking, traffic congestion and safety on Tentelow Lane, all of which are issues for us already.

 

We think it might be a good idea to have a preliminary meeting to discuss what plan of action we need to take with a view to save the car park.  A coordinated approach may be more fruitful. We will meet at The Plough on Monday 20th August at 7pm.  We hope as many of you as possible can join us.
