The Council consulted residents last year about parking problems in the South Edmonton area, particularly those likely to occur when the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium opens next year with a capacity increased from 38,000 to over 61,000.
In addition to hosting all of Tottenham’s home matches, the stadium has permission for up to 16 non-football major events per year, two of which will be National Football League (American football) matches and up to six could be music concerts.
Tottenham Hotspur F.C. is taking steps to ensure that as many people as possible travel to the stadium by public transport. However, without on-street parking controls, some spectators will attempt to drive and park in residential streets. This could result in:
- Severe congestion on the local road network;
- Increased delays to the local bus service due to bus diversions;
- Residents and businesses being unable to park in local streets.
To combat these problems, the Council believes it is necessary to introduce an event-day controlled parking zone (CPZ).
Consultation closes Friday 23rd February 2018
