The new voivode will not withdraw the complaint to the Supreme Administrative Court filed by his predecessor. It blocks the introduction of paid parking zones in Saska Kępa and Kamion.

“Gazeta Stołeczna” wrote about the case on Friday. The new voivode, Mariusz Frankowski (PO), told the daily that “he is a supporter of expanding the paid zone and, as a city councilor, he also voted for it in both parts of Praga-Południe.”

He said that he was analyzing the material in this case, and his predecessor’s reservations did not concern substantive issues, but procedural ones. This included consultations of the Municipal Roads Authority, which should precede the councilors’ vote. – Perhaps this should be left to the Supreme Administrative Court to decide once and for all. This is my position today. At this stage, I do not intend to withdraw the cassation appeal, he told a journalist of “Stoleczna”.

Residents’ parking problems

The complaint concerns the resolution of the Warsaw Council from March this year. With the votes of KO and the Left, councilors decided that Saska Kępa and Kamionek would be included in the paid parking zone. In April, their decision was questioned by the Masovian Voivode (the document was formally signed by his deputy, Tobiasz Bocheński – Sylwester Dąbrowski). The capital city hall appealed against this decision to the Provincial Administrative Court, which sided with the Warsaw authorities. The voivode filed a cassation appeal to a higher instance.

The issue is still alive among the residents of Praga Południe, as evidenced by their meeting with President Rafał Trzaskowski (PO). He maintained that the city wanted to install parking meters in this part of Praga Południe. Trzaskowski assessed Bocheński’s behavior as “purely political”. He announced that if all formal obstacles are overcome, work on demarcating the zone may start at the beginning of 2024.

Both in Kamionek and Saska Kępa, older buildings dominate and the buildings usually do not have underground garages. The majority of residents who have problems with everyday parking demand the introduction of the zone. They complain that the seats are taken by people who come from further districts, leave their cars under their windows and then travel by public transport.
