APCOA Partners with the London Borough of Richmond to Enforce Controlled Parking Zones

- London, United Kingdom
London Borough of Richmond

APCOA is delighted to have been awarded the parking enforcement contract for the London Borough of Richmond.

From August 2024, APCOA CEO’s will patrol the borough either on foot or using an all-electric fleet of bikes, mopeds and vehicles, maximising the sustainability of operations and supporting wider ESG commitments. Enforcement of Controlled Parking Zones (CPZ) make the borough safer for pedestrians and accessible to emergency and refuse vehicles at all times, as well as preventing all-day commuter parking and reducing the number of abandoned vehicles.

Kim Challis, APCOA’s Regional Managing Director UK&I, concurs: “A controlled CPZ is an important strategy in managing unauthorised or anti-social parking and we are pleased to be working in partnership with the London Borough of Richmond, using our experience and expertise to deliver a first-class service for residents and visitors alike”.

Paul Chadwick, Executive Director for Environment and Community Services, Richmond Council concludes: "Richmond Council prioritises helping our residents to use forms of travel that support our environmental and health goals, particularly moving safely around our borough on foot - ensuring our parking options are used in a controlled way is essential to facilitating this. We are looking forward to working with APCOA and are pleased to being partnering with an organisation who shares our commitment to reducing the carbon impact of our operations."
