Parking charges to be introduced at Newlands Corner
Published: 27 June 2018
Help conserve our countryside
Parking charges at Newlands Corner which will help to improve and maintain the Surrey countryside will start on 9 July.
Why are charges being introduced?
Our stunning countryside needs funding to ensure it remains accessible, free from litter and doesn't become overgrown. Charging for parking means Surrey County Council will be able to continue investing in its countryside despite cuts to funding, rising costs and increasing demand for other key services across the county.
Improvements at Newlands Corner are already underway with more benches so visitors can admire the views, whilst the toilets will be improved later this year.
How do I pay?
If you're only parking for up to 20 minutes it'll still be free – but remember to collect a parking ticket from the machine. For longer stays, you'll be able to pay by credit or debit card or through Ringo – either using the app or over the phone. There's no charge for motorcycles parked in the designated area or blue badge holders.
Regular visitors can apply for a Newlands Corner annual parking pass for £60 by calling 01785 336781.
Charges at other sites
Parking charges will also be introduced at six other sites soon – Norbury Park and Chobham, Ockham, Rodborough, Whitmoor and Wisley commons. A separate annual pass will be available for these sites.

The future of Surrey's countryside sites
In the autumn, to help Surrey County Council understand residents' priorities we will be asking them to have their say on how the council's countryside sites should be managed for the next 25 years.
