New Blackheath CPZ takes effect

After campaigning by residents and councillor Geoff Brighty, a new Controlled Parking Zone around Kidbrooke Grove, Rochester Way and Kidbrooke Park Road has taken effect.

The roads were filled by commuters driving into the area to use nearby train stations, creating congestion and in some cases - difficult conditions for people with driveways. Kidbrooke Grove residents, with Geoff’s support, petitioned the council in 2016 to introduce the zone and Geoff pushed for a wider area to be considered.
