It seems that Roehampton University is again testing the parameters of what is acceptable with regards to student car parking requirements. There was the portacabins by Whitelands College (2016-1385) then the Travel Plan (2016-4901).
As far as we know, there are hardly any resident parking permits in the local area.
The link below refers to the areas that do have such restrictions, these being the location of parking zones.
Questions to consider:
- What is the point discouraging students from parking in the area, as these are only words?
- Are students really restricted from parking in the area? They could still park their car on the Alton Estate.
- This plan is to do with Elm Grove Students Halls and that is 358 rooms. Imagine if 10% of these students have cars, that is 36 cars, and where do they park?
- Is this the University really taking responsibility for its own requirements?
