Road traffic schemes and consultations

""

Alert

Traffic and highway improvement schemes are usually designed and installed as the result of an accident or problem, in response to requests from residents or as part of a national policy (for example, the introduction of 20mph zones).

Below is a list of current road traffic schemes and consultations in Waltham Forest. The Council’s Traffic Management Order consultation documents can also be found on this page. Information on how and where to submit comment or objections can be found in the attached documents.

See details of previous consultations.

The Council is dedicated to improving road safety for all road users, and we are committed to introducing 20mph speed limits in all residential roads across the borough. Over 3 quarters of the borough is already covered by a 20mph zone or limit and we are now proposing that 20 mph zones are extended in to the remaining residential areas in the borough.

Between 2016 and 2019, a total of 83 collisions were recorded within the area where we are proposing the 20mph zone, which resulted in 99 casualties. A lower speed limit helps reduce the number and the severity of collisions as a person is about five times less likely to be fatally injured if hit at 20mph than at 30mph.

In addition to improving road safety and reducing the number of collisions, the proposed measures in the 20mph zone will also help encourage the use of more sustainable transport modes like cycling and walking with the associated environmental and social benefits. The proposals are central to the Council’s ambition to introduce 20mph limits in all residential areas across the borough and support London’s Vision Zero Strategy.

The proposed 20 mph zone includes all streets that bounded by Sewardstone Road, Kings Head Hill, Kings Road, and Whitehall Road which fall within the London Borough of Waltham Forest.

If you live in any of the streets within this area you should have already received a leaflet on the 20mph Zone consultation.

If you haven’t received a leaflet, you can download and complete the questionnaire and attach this to an email addressed to Traffic.Scheme@walthamforest.gov.uk. Alternatively, you contact us on the e-mail address below to request a copy with a free post return slip. The consultation will close on Friday 20 March 2020.

Following requests from residents who had been experiencing parking difficulties within the Hale End area, Waltham Forest Council consulted residents and businesses on the proposed implementation of a new Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) in November 2018.

These parking difficulties are often caused by non residential parking in the area due to visitors or external parking pressures.

Based on the results of the local consultation, the Hale End (HE) CPZ was progressed within the area bounded by Belle Vue Road and Forest Road and included sections of Hale End Road and Beacontree Avenue.

The majority of responses received from the remaining area consulted did not support the introduction of a CPZ during the November 2018 consultation. Therefore these roads remained uncontrolled.

Due to complaints regarding the lack of available parking and parking pressures within the Hale End North area we are now consulting residents again to determine if they would now like to have the Hale End (HE) CPZ extended into their roads.

A Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) is the most effective parking control measure available to us to help local residents and businesses find available parking close to their property.

The Council is consulting occupants within the area shown on the Hale End area (HE) map on a CPZ scheme proposed for your road and the wider area.

The roads within the consultation area include:

  • Beacontree Avenue (between Belle Vue Road and Pentire Road)
  • Carnanton Road
  • Cobham Road
  • Guildford Road
  • Grantock Road
  • Hale End Road (between Belle Vue Road and the North Circular A406)
  • Heathcroft Gardens
  • Longacre Road
  • Lamorna Close
  • MacDonald Road
  • Pentire Road
  • Thorpe Hall Road
  • Trevose Road

In November 2018 Waltham Forest Council consulted residents and businesses within the Higham Hill area on the proposed implementation of a new Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ), following requests from residents who had been experiencing parking difficulties in their road.

These parking difficulties are often caused by non residential parking in the area due to visitors shopping, commuting or visiting other local amenities.

Based on the results of the local consultation, the Higham Hill (HH) CPZ was progressed in the majority of roads within the consultation area bounded by Billet Road, Millfield Avenue and Wigton Road, but excluding North Countess Road.

Parking controls were not progressed in Windsor Avenue, Rodney Place, Priors Croft and Warwick Road as the majority of responses received from these roads consulted did not support the introduction of a CPZ. As parking has remained uncontrolled in these roads they may have been subject to higher levels of parking stress since the CPZ was introduced in the adjacent area.

The Council is therefore offering the opportunity for residents of the Higham Hill area who remain outside of a CPZ to have parking controls extended into their roads.

In November 2018 Waltham Forest Council consulted residents and businesses within the Higham Hill North area on the proposed implementation of a new Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ), following requests from residents who had been experiencing parking difficulties in their road.

These parking difficulties are often caused by non-residential parking in the area due to visitors shopping, commuting or visiting other local amenities. Based on the results of the local consultation, the majority of responses received from the Higham Hill North area consulted did not support the introduction of a CPZ, therefore these roads remained uncontrolled.

Since the original consultation in 2018 the council has introduced and/or extended parking controls in adjacent areas, and this may have had an impact on parking pressure within the Higham Hill North area. The Council is therefore offering the opportunity for residents of the Higham Hill North area to have parking controls extended into their roads.
