Countryside parking charges
Published: 27 June 2018
Help conserve our countryside
Parking charges which will help to improve and maintain the Surrey countryside have been introduced in car parks at Newlands Corner, Chobham Common, Norbury Park, Ockham Common and Wisley Common.
Why have charges been 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.
At Newlands Corner, improvements are already underway with more benches so visitors can admire the views, while the toilets will be improved later this year.
How do I pay?
You can 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.
You can park for free for up to 20 minutes at Newlands Corner or the Boldermere car park in Ockham Common – but remember to collect a parking ticket from the machine.
Regular visitors can apply for a Newlands Corner annual parking pass, or a separate annual parking pass which covers all other sites, for £60 each. Please call 01785 336781 or visit the District Enforcement website.
Charges at other sites
Parking charges will also be introduced at Rodborough and Whitmoor commons.

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.
