On 13th of July Jon Cruddas MP and Havering Coordinator Fay Hough visited Anglesey Drive, in Rainham to discuss the ongoing parking concerns. The biggest issue is with commuters using Rainham c2c station parking down the road. Anglesey Drive currently has single yellow lines, and the parking signs state no parking between 8:30am - 9:30am. Residents have explained that commuters wait until after 9:30am to park before heading to work, and the situation on this very narrow road is becoming untenable.

Jon Cruddas Member of Parliament for Dagenham and Rainham has been contacted by a number of residents in Whalebone Ward regarding the ongoing parking problems there. Over 150 local residents have presented Jon with a petition highlighting that commuters using Chadwell Heath Station use much of the nearby space to park their cars up before heading to work, and leave them there till late in the evening resulting in residents not be able to park in their own road.

Earlier this year Jon Cruddas secured the implementation of a resident parking scheme on both Melville and Cowper Road in Rainham Village. Since then the residents of the roads have been contacting Jon’s office to enquire when work will start.

Back in 2014 residents of Melville and Cowper Roads in Rainham Village contacted Jon Cruddas to raise the issue of parking in their area. Due to the roads close proximity to Rainham train station many commuters were taking advantage of the roads free parking facilities. In some cases residents reported that commuters were waiting for them to leave for work in the mornings, filling the space outside their houses and remaining there until late, leaving residents returning from work with nowhere to park.

Last year Jon Cruddas MP conducted a survey regarding the issue of parking on Melville Road where many residents had complained that commuters using Rainham Station were filling all of the parking spaces on the road. Following the survey Jon Cruddas contacted Havering Council about this issue and an informal consultation was put in place to find out how residents wanted the situation resolved.

Havering Council contacted Jon this week advising that there will be a formal consultation which is anticipated to be sent out to every resident by Friday 20th February.
