Churchill Labour Councillors take action on Coach Parking

Churchill Ward Labour Councillors Jason Williams and Shamim Talukder have been working with Council officers to ask for urgent action on Coach parking on Ebury Bridge Road and Pimlico Road.

Residents have been contacting Councillors with examples of Coaches parked on Pimlico Road as well as by the Chelsea Barracks site on Ebury Bridge Road.

Councillor Jason Williams said: “It’s clear the removal of the Coach parking facility in Nine Elms due to the redevelopment work there has had an effect on moving the issue to our streets while they wait for a slot at the Victoria Coach Station.”

Councillor Shamim Talukder said: “Our local streets are not designed to be used as a Coach parking lot and urgent action needs to be taken to resolve this issue.”

Council Officers, following lobbying by Councillors, are commissioning a feasibility study to look at how to reduce the extent of Victoria Coach Station coaches being driven around local roads, parking and engine idling.

Cllr Williams and Cllr Talukder has asked residents to continue to keep them informed on examples of coaches parked by emailing them
on jwilliams@westminster.gov.uk or stalukder@westminster.gov.uk
