East marsh as in Hackney marshes, will be a car park for the olympics. I can't see them grassing it back over and giving it back. So there's the car park.

Does everyone know that there will be virtually nowhere to park in the area?
Are they happy that park and ride may need them to drive to Epping and tube it in?
(I made the Epping part up based on the fact that I could not think of any stations close by that do not already have parking restrictions).


:think:

By the same token how on earth would the Upton Park area cope with the extra traffic and car parking if the Bolyen is increased to 45k???

As for Epping??!!! I suspect alot would be parking just south of Wanstead tube station...

It's currently free for the first 2 hours...

I doubt they'll be closing it every other Saturday afternoon and therefore also lose out on 1000's of customers at peak shopping time..

Neither can I how they could 'prove' who is a shopper and who isn't if they were going to discriminate..?

And I suspect that as the yellow lines and parking zones grow longer just south of Wanstead tube that this will become an impossibility. There is little or no commuter parking space just South of the station at the moment and cant see that getting any better. They are already talking about extending the restrictions, if we move to the O/S then you can bet that Saturdays afternoons will be included.

From The London Borough of Hackney's website -:
'For the Games in 2012, East Marsh will host a temporary facility for coach drop off, cycle and disabled parking. It will not be concreted over, but will have a temporary surface that will be removed after the Games when East Marsh returns as playing fields.'

I tells you, all the local boroughs hate cars, so unless someone comes up with some massive private car park somewhere we can say goodbye to parking anywhere near the ground.

Yes, good question and one had wondered about myself.
As i said earlier in this thread, not sure if and how they do it for Westfield White City for QPR matches, maybe they dont bother as there is not the demand?

Well that's a new one on me. :?

I'm unaware of these supposed restrictions that apply on a weekend south of Wanstead tube. Last time I checked nearly all of the roads between Wanstead Park and the tube are restriction free...

Here is the current CPZ -
http://www2.redbridge.gov.uk/cms/parkin ... version=-1" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Note -its already in place on Saturdays.

This is the scheme they are looking to extend, can you imagine the posh people of Wanstead having football parking outside their homes?
But its not only Wanstead, its all of the Central line despite me being facetious as regards Epping.

Ticket machines? Free xx hours parking if validated at time of purchase in one of the stores, otherwise pay on foot before exit.

Yep, but i play football on the north and south marsh where they have moved the matches from the east marsh on to.There's plenty of room there and i bet if we move to the olympic stadium they will use the east marsh as a car park.I know they said it would be given back but i don't believe them.

Trouble is Taff its part of the legacy promise, am not sure if this promise is legally binding.
Also Hackney have been promised money to spend on other Sports facilities in the area and from what I can see this relies on them fulfilling their obligations.I guess it may all come down to money though, would West Ham offer more than what they are already being offered to purchase this as a car park, and would they get planning permisssion on Green belt land?
I did not realise either that the Hockey and handball centres are within the borough of Hackney and therefore we could not consider the re-building of the Hockey centre as Newham would not partner us, and neither could Leyton Orient as they are in Waltham Forest.
I bet the O's wish they had never moved now.

That may not be as daft as it first sounds :D I think I'll end up parking in the same place in Plaistow and walking, or maybe nearer Newham College? Plenty of time for the council to paint some more restriction signs between now and then.

By the time we move, there will be CPZ's from here to Southend Pier.

Ok, I know, right on cue and hot of this weeks press -
http://www.guardian-series.co.uk/news/9 ... uted_area/

Not quite the area you are talking about but I assume that Felstead (which are next door) etc must already be covered, otherwise why wouldnt these people park here for work?
anyway you get my drift, these areas seem to be growing by the day.

"...we stand by our commitment to conduct full supporter consultation regarding the move, including the polling of supporters. You can be confident that wherever there is an opportunity for West Ham to input in the decisions going forward, our supporters will be at the forefront.

We have already taken the first step towards this by calling an emergency meeting of our Supporter Advisory Board on Tuesday 11th December at 6pm to advise on the best methods to consult the wider support base going forward.
