I am starting this new discussion since the previous one goes back a long way. There doesn't appear to be a great deal of change to the planning especially since we also have the threat of a CPZ around Hampton and the even more worrying Kempton/Jockey club proposals. 

I still don't think there has been sufficient support regarding parking. Who is going to pay for visitors permits when either or both start using an already overcrowded area for residents let alone short or long term visitors. The old police station is on a very dangerous corner where two buses are unable to pass without patience. Traffic is already at bursting point in Station Road so any overflow parking will cause a health/ congestion nightmare. 20mph hasn't made much difference. Cars and vans still tear down at a rate of knots.

Perhaps if Hampton Village could be metaphorically chopped off the mainland and floated into the Thames there would be room for these money grabbing plans. Thus allowing residents families and workers could enjoy a safer environment.

Thanks Steph - for reference the application details are listed at 19/2822/FUL.

(I suspect if Hampton Village were floated on the Thames some rascal would just try to sell illegal moorings off it.)

I agree Steph.  Having looked at the plans again there doesn't appear to be any new information about parking, I could just be missing it, still say it's not a good idea

Hi Janice - I found details of the amended parking provision in the Schedule of Amendments dated 10 February. See items 3-7 inclusive.

From the SoA: "In total, an additional 9 no. parking spaces, plus 1 no. mini-bus bay is provided. An additional 2 no. electric charging points have also been added."

Looking at the 'Revised Drawings' and comparing the new Ground Floor Layout with the superseded edition you can see they appear to have generated the additional spaces by sacrificing some of the cycling space (1 space), reconfiguring the multi-purpose/office space/stairwell on the street/Mews corner (2 spaces), squeezed in more car spaces in the existing allocated space along the Mews side, added 2 spaces on the Mews boundary, and carved into the landscaping on the eastern street corner. 

So basically just squeezing them in where they can and hoping it will get through. 

Thanks Matt

Having just been for a bit of fresh air tonight around 9pm, half of Avenue Road has cars parked from Station Road, you only need to watch and see where they walk and they are from the new builds behind the cafe and the dentist, plus those above Hampton Bathrooms (where there is a large car park which surely they should be able to use).  If the the Care Home goes ahead then there will be more car parking.  CPZ won't help us but the care home only giving another 9 spaces will not help either.
