Southwark-wide opposition to the blanket CPZ Policy

We the undersigned petition the council to Halt the CPZ rollout and reverse its implementation in areas with no parking stress

Signatories to this ePetition are adding their signatures to the Southwark-wide letter on the OpposeTheCPZ.org site: https://opposethecpz.org/2023/07/27/southwark-wide-petition/

In which:
- We argue that the council has no legal basis or proper purpose for imposing the CPZs, and that it has failed to consult with the affected residents and businesses.

- We cite the relevant statutory provisions and authorities that limit the council’s power to impose CPZs, and accuse the council of acting for improper purposes such as raising revenue, punishing car owners, and imposing its ideological views on parking.

- We point out the negative impacts of the CPZs on the residents and businesses, such as inconvenience, loss of trade, damage to conservation areas, and spill-over parking.

- We request further information from the council on its legal advice, its parking account, and its reports to the Mayor on its parking income and expenditure.

- We invite the council to halt the illegal project and debate the points raised at the next meeting, or face a potential judicial review by the residents.

We encourage signatories to this ePetition to also sign the letter on the website.
