More than 230 Blackfen, Lamorbey and East Wickham residents have signed a petition objecting to new parking proposals Greenwich Council is considering introducing in Avery Hill.

Greenwich is pushing for parking restrictions to be relaxed around the University of Greenwich’s Southwood Site in Avery Hill and residents claim this would see parking spill over onto Bexley roads.

The petition, which will be presented to the London Assembly by Bexley and Bromley member James Cleverly on Wednesday (July 24), calls on London Mayor Boris Johnson to reject the plans.

Blacken and Lamorbery’s Cllr Peter Craske said: “These plans will lead to cars presently parking in Greenwich just moving to park in what are already packed out residential roads.

“While Greenwich will be quiet and clutter free, residents in Blackfen and Lamorbey and East Wickham will suddenly find they are unable to park near their homes as their roads are full of cars from Greenwich.

“We hope the Mayor will listen and support the big thumbs down Bexley residents have given to this idea.”
