It is hoped that everyone had a great Christmas. Some properties on the Alton Estate did a wonderful job of decorating their homes with festive joy and the following are three examples. Maybe next year there should be Alton Estate Christmas decoration competition?

Roehampton University answers questions about student car parking

Given the volume of objections to various Roehampton University planning applications based mainly around car parking impacts on local residents a Freedom of Information request was sent to the University.

According to the Gov.uk website when a question is asked “You should get the information within 20 working days. The organisation will tell you when to expect the information if they need more time”.

With regard to this timeframe this 20 day timescale was not achieved. The timings were:

  • 23 October 2016 – questions were sent to the University.
  • 16 November 2016 – a chaser was sent to the University asking for progress.
  • 22 November 2016 – a chaser was re-sent as the email of 16 November bounced.
  • 10 December 2016 – a further chaser was sent to the University.
  • 15 December 2016 – finally, a reply received and this also provided answers to the questions.

Was the delay so as to possibly not interfere with the planning applications which were in process, or was it for other reasons?

What the answers seem to be pointing towards is that student car parking is the Council’s responsibility via the planning application process. Does this seem a bit like the University is washing its hands of any responsibility for student car parking in the ward?

The questions and answers are below;

From: University

15 December 2016

Freedom of Information Request Roehampton University and car parking

With reference to your request made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, dated 22 November 2016, I can confirm that the University holds some, but not all,  the information requested.

Your request was, in general terms, for the following information, which is set out in  full detail below: car parking arrangements for students.

Our response is as follows:

As a resident of the Alton Estate and the recent acknowledgement by the University  of Roehampton that it does “understand the pressure on parking cars in  Roehampton” (as stated as part of planning application 2016/5377 letter dated 14th  September 2016 signed by Dr Ghazwa Alwani-Starr) following queries are asked of  the University;

1.         What is the current maximum capacity of resident students in the Roehampton & Putney Heath ward that the University can accommodate?

The University has 2,053 rooms on-campus – including Mount Clare and  Whitelands.

2.         Has the University conducted any analysis of how many of these resident  students have a car?

No, we have not carried out an analysis as we don’t offer parking for students  unless they can demonstrate limited mobility which is then approved through  Disabilities Service. We keep a record of this.  A recent travel survey included  questions about modes of travel to the University, and to promote more  sustainable travel, not car ownership.

3.         If the answer to question 2 is yes, can the University share this analysis?

Although as stated above, the travel survey did not ask about car ownership, however the results showed that 75% of our students use sustainable modes of travel to get to and from the University.

4.         If the answer to question 2 is no, can the University explain the reason for not having done this?

This is because the University has no reason to undertake a survey for a  service we do not offer.

5.         If the answer to question 2 is no, does the University have plans to conduct such an analysis?

No, however students are invited to participate in University-wide travel surveys from time to time, as noted above.

6.         If the answer to question 5 is no, what is the explanation for not conducting such an analysis?

This is because the University has no reason to undertake a survey for a service we do not offer.

7.         Given that resident students are not permitted to park their cars on campus can the University provide an explanation of where the resident students park their  cars?

This information is not held.

However, heavily discounted rates are offered in the car park at Queen Mary’s Hospital.  After 4.30pm through to 8am and also at weekends students are  permitted to park on campus

8.         If the answer to question 7 is no, does the University intend to carry out such an analysis?

No.

9.         If the answer to question 8 is no, then please explain the reason for not doing so.

This information is not held.   However, the comment in response to question 4 above is relevant; as the  University cannot monitor where students park (other than on campus or at  QMH) there would be no reason (or authority) for the University to conduct  such a survey.  Nor would there be a requirement on students to respond to  such a survey in respect of parking in roads without parking restrictions.

10.       Regarding the wording “we strongly discourage students from bringing their  cars on campus” it is asked that the University detail how it discourages students  from parking on campus.

In the accommodation handbook and on the web we discourage students from bringing cars due to the parking restrictions and the strong public transport links, as described below:

“Handbook:  Student cannot park on campus between 8:30am and 4:30pm (Monday to Friday) during term time.  The University advises resident students not to have a car.  Everything you need is available locally or is easily accessible by public transport.”

The University’s Travel Plan sets out other methods of transport, including bus routes and timetables.  There is significant on-going investment in provision for cyclists, including secure racking and shower facilities.  In particular, covered secure  cycle racking for 100 bikes has been provided at Elm Grove Hall, and the University  now has over 500 cycle spaces across the campus

11.      Regarding the wording “The University’s contract with resident students prohibits them from applying for a residents parking permit in the local area”, is the University aware that such permits are limited to a very small part of Roehampton as highlighted by the following Council webpage –

http://www.wandsworth.gov.uk/info/200459/parking_zones/218/locations_of_parking

_zones/11 ?

This information is not held.

12.       Given that planning application 2016/1385 and 2016/4901 are connected to this planning application in that they involve car parking as a concern as expressed by residents. Will the University seek to address these concerns with residents?   The University will continue to discourage car use by its students, and the parking arrangements are not affected by the planning application.

13.       If the answer to question 12 is yes, then please explain how this will be done.

14.       If the answer to question 13 is no, then please explain the reason for not doing so.

In response to Question 12, as the planning application does not change parking arrangements, the University does not intend to seek to address any concerns with residents and relies on the planning application process.

Alton Road traffic calming measure consultation

Some residents on the Alton East may remember that back in February 2016 the Hyacinth Road bus stop was moved slightly up the hill. The following pictures show the works being done and what it looked like when completed.

160206-5-medium

160207-2-medium

Now, there is a consultation regarding installing raised cushions near the bus stop. The below picture highlights the consultation and a resident (a member of the Stoughton Close & Greatham Walk Residents Association) has followed up with the Council asking various questions.

20161217e-1

It took a while for answers to be provided though hopefully you will find the following of interest. It does not seem that all of the questions have been answered, for instance, it still has not been explained the reason for not including a contact phone number or email within the consultation notice.

From: Council
Sent: Friday, 16 December 2016, 13:59
Subject: RE: Alton Rd traffic calming measures

Thank you very much for your quick response to my email.

Please find attached requested drawing for information. I apologise for forgetting the drawing to attach to my last email.

The council published all its notices in Wandsworth Guardian. You may therefore want to ask the management of the paper to extend its circulation to your area.

As I mentioned in my previous email, there are elderly pedestrians and schoolchildren who regularly travel between the South and the north of the estate crossing Alton Road between stationary buses. This was the reason the bus stop was relocated to the east. In addition, the council has a rigorous safety monitoring system in place for all new and existing projects.

As you mentioned in your last email, your organisation is fairly new and it was not known to me.  In future, I can reassure you that your association will be consulted with any future scheme for your area.

Should you have further queries regarding the above project please do contact me.

Sent: 15 December 2016 20:34

Thank you very much for both the email and for extending deadline, this is much appreciated.

I do have some additional comments regarding the below email and have been prefixed SF 15/12.

From: Council
Date: 15 December 2016 at 12:49:54 GMT
Subject: RE: Alton Rd traffic calming measures

Thank you very much for your email below regarding Alton Road speed cushion relocation works. In order to address each one of your queries, I have inserted a response under each and every item of your email in blue.

1.      The posters state a date of June, though they look new and I walk past this area all the time and take the bus from here. The question is when were these posters put up?

The poster is published in the local newspaper, Wandsworth Guardian, in June 2016, and it was displayed on the lamp columns on 23rd November 2016.

SF 15/12 – the Wandsworth Guardian is not distributed in the Alton Estate and there are hardly any distributed within the ward. There has been a Residents Association in the area for 15 months or so and it is a little disappointing this was not notified to the RA.

2.      Why do the posters not contain a phone number or email address so that residents can contact someone from the Council?

The address of the council was written at the bottom left of the notice. The address of every department of The Council can be also found from the council website.

SF 15/12 – I can appreciate that there is an address though the question is why there was not a phone number or email address provided. The notice only mentions only an address which is not optimal was the original deadline was 9th December starting on November 23rd. This is not a lot of time for correspondence by post to raise queries and receive a response.

3.      How did this request to move the cushions originate?

This work is a part of bus stop accessibility improvement works. In order to improve the safety and conformability of buses for passengers, Transport for London “Accessible Bus stop Guidance”  recommends that all traffic calming measures must be placed outside the bus-stop cages. For this reason, the cushions are proposed to be relocated outside the bus cage.

4.      Can a diagram be provided of where exactly this movement of cushions will now be?

Please find attached drawing for information

SF 15/12 – unfortunately the diagram was not provided with the email, could this please be sent.

5.      How much will it cost to make this movement of cushions?

It will cost around two £2500.

6. I have used this bus stop for years which leads to the question what was the reason for the bus stop being moved in the first place?

It has been observed that many pedestrians including children cross this road between stationary buses. For this reason, The bus stop is moved to improve the safety for the pedestrians.

SF 15/12 – discussing this point with my wife we are both not clear on this reason in terms, of how moving the bus stop mitigates people crossing the road between buses as this has en with the bus having been moved. The bus stop now is opposite the entrance of Foxcombe Rd which would seem a worse place to have the bus stop as the previous location was not directly in front of Hyacinth Road.

6.      Can the deadline please be extended from the 9th December as it has taken a week to receive contact details (and it hoped this is the correct contact details)?

The dead line is extended to the 23rd of December.

7.      How much did it cost to move the bus stop?

Transport for London manages bus stop shelters and they use their  contractors for bus stop shelter works.

I hope these information responds to your queries.

Are you able to provide us with the email of someone we could ask some questions of please?

This poster, for whatever reason, only allows for snail mail correspondence.

Feedback in this is requested by December 9th so your urgent assistance would be appreciated.

Related to Item 1 section 5 there was some discussion regarding the text “Pam Lucas, Stoughton Close and Greatham Walk Residents’ Association, suggested that the Western Area Housing Panel should request that the membership requirements permitted one member from a sheltered housing

Residents’ Association and three members from accredited Residents’ Associations. Shirley Price, Putney Vale Residents’ Association, agreed to raise this issue at the next Roehampton Partnership meeting”. As a couple of the Resident Associations felt that post-meeting actions did not live up to what was agreed in at the meeting of 19th September.
