Consultation has concluded

This consultation closed on 20 December 2023, an update will be available shortly which will summarise the findings and next steps.

As part of our ambitious plans for a healthier, greener and safer Hounslow, we are looking to reimagine our streets for the benefit of more residents and businesses.

We want to update how our parking and ‘kerbside’ spaces are used to create well designed streets and public areas that work for everyone. 60% of journeys in the borough are made by walking, cycling and public transport, and we would like our streets and spaces to benefit everyone.


Have your say!

To help shape our vision we are inviting you to have your say on our Parking and Kerbside strategies. We’re keen to hear your thoughts and ideas on how you would like these spaces to be used and managed.

  • Comment using the Surveys. The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
  • Drop a pin on the Maps. You can suggest locations for disabled and priority parking bays, car clubs, cycle parking/hangars, trees and plants, parklets, delivery bays and more!

What’s the kerbside?

The kerbside is the space that sits on the road next to the pavement. You might currently find cars, trees, cycle parking, or taxi bays here. Well-designed streets and spaces benefit everyone, not just a few. We are considering proposals for other kerbside uses such as more trees, plants, car clubs, seating and outdoor eating areas and deliveries.


Why is parking important?

Hounslow requires a progressive car parking strategy to manage and enhance its existing provision to meet emerging trends. The Parking Strategy looks to maximise benefits for users, as well as enhancing parking management by examining a number of key areas. These include parking supply, safety & security, signage, future mobility (e.g. electric charging points), pricing, operations, active travel options (e.g. cycling, walking), accessible and priority parking (e.g. for people with disabilities or parent and toddler bays).


What happens next? 

Following the consultation, we will publish a report on what you’ve told us as well as our key stakeholders and partners. We will make changes to the strategies based on this information, and the final strategies will be submitted to Cabinet for approval.

If you would like a printed copy of this consultation, or an accessible alternative, such as Braille, large print or EasyRead, please email engage@hounslow.gov.uk.

    With 60% of trips in the borough made by walking, cycling and public transport, the Council wants to get a better understanding of how kerbside and parking spaces are used throughout the borough to help reimagine its streets for the benefit of residents, visitors and local businesses in the community. For this we need your views. In the survey we will ask you some questions about you, how you get around the borough, and your thoughts on the different kerbside uses and parking. Let us know your ideas too!
