Traffic control

Sensible regulation of traffic is another major concern of the Company, particularly in respect of the unauthorised use of the private roads.

Gates at Manor Way, and Pond Road or Morden Road, are manned during the week from 0730 to 0930 hours and from 1700 to 1900 hours, and a permit is required to enter and exit the estate through these gates at these times.

Residents can use their BCER Vehicle Permits. Those without permits can apply for a BCER Vehicle Permit by returning the application form with the relevant payment (£20 per permit) and supporting documentation.

Residents not wishing to purchase a Vehicle Permit, or not entitled to have a Vehicle Permit, may be entitled to apply for a BCER Gate Pass. These are issued free of charge, but do not confer the right to park on the estate roads, and are available by returning the application form with the supporting documentation.

To obtain a vehicle permit or a gate pass, please complete the application form and return it to the office with the relevant documentation in accordance with the terms, conditions and requirements detailed on the form.

The gates are open as follows:

  • The Blackheath Park gate will continue to be open at all times and will not be manned (no permit required).
  • The Priory Park gate will be locked from 07.30 to 09.30 and 17.00 to 19.00.
  • The Manor Way gate will be manned from 07.30 to 09.30 and 17.00 to 19.00.
  • The Morden Road gate will be closed every morning from 07.00 to 09.30
    (Pond Road will be manned from 07.30 to 09.30)
  • Pond Road gate will be closed every evening from 17.00 to 19.00
    (Morden Road will be manned the same hours)

Non-resident visitors or tradesmen are required to display a clear notice in the windscreen of any vehicle parked on the Estate’s roads showing the address being visited and the date. A parking notice can be downloaded here. Any vehicle which displays neither a permit nor a windscreen notice is liable to be issued with a Parking Charge Fee.

Please note that only cars displaying a valid BCER vehicle permit and a disabled “Blue Badge” are entitled to park in disabled bays.

Vehicles that are parked on double yellow lines, verges or obstructing crossovers anywhere on the Cator Estate will be considered to be parking obstructively and may be issued with a penalty charge notice.
