Parking charges are set to be introduced in the car park outside Osterley Sports & Athletics Centre.

Following the conclusion of a statutory consultation anyone without an exemption parking between 8.30am and 4.30am will have to pay if they wish to remain for more than three hours.

Parking is free up to that point and then there would be a £3 charge for the next hour. Parking for more than 4 hours would not be allowed.

This system is designed to discourage commuter parking at the site.

The enforcement of the car parking charges will be included in the existing Council parking enforcement contract between London Borough of Hounslow and Serco.

The site is currently uncontrolled and the council says it is being used for long-term parking by non-leisure facility users thereby restricting the availability of parking space for visitors to the site.

The proposed changes would bring the site in-line with the car parks at Hanworth Airpark, Heston and Isleworth Leisure Centres following the introduction of parking controls at those sites in November 2019.

Since the introduction of those controls at other sites, the council says that feedback indicates that the controls have had the intended outcome of removing non-Leisure related parking

Lampton Leisure, which currently manages the Council’s leisure portfolio, fully supported the need to manage parking at the site.
