Elmbridge parking review 2018-19

There are a number of stages involved in the review, these are shown below. The current stage is: Informal consultation


Introduction

The deadline for requests for new parking controls to be considered as part of this parking review was at the end of June 2018. All of the requests we'd received were assessed based on road safety, accessibility, congestion, the possibility of just displacing a problem and how many people supported the change.

We received around 370 individual requests, along with 19 parking scheme requests forms (petitions).


Committee authorisation

Our report of recommendations was presented to the local committee for initial approval under Item 8 of the meeting of 26 November 2018. The report had three annexes:

  • 1 - Description and explanation of proposals - a table and drawings of recommended proposals
  • 2 - Petition responses and recommendations
  • 3 - Locations rejected

The committee approved the report with the following changes and additions:

  • Bridge Road and Creek Road, East Molesey - provide two '30 minute' parking bays (replacing existing bays) at the north-east end of Bridge Road and extend the proposed bays on Creek Road across the unused access outside numbers 13/15.
  • Manordene Close, Thames Ditton - add a proposal to introduce double yellow lines along one side of the road.
  • Thames Street, Weybridge - modify the times of the proposed and existing hours of operation of the school keep clear markings to better match the opening hours of the school.
  • Re-consider the idea of introducing permit parking controls in Dorchester Road and Gascoigne Road, as well as modifying existing schemes in Limes Road and Minorca Road.

The committee's decision to re-consider potential schemes at this stage is likely to affect overall timescales for the parking review.

Officers met have now meet with county and borough members to discuss potential options for new permit parking schemes in Weybridge, and the agreed schemes will be 'advertised' with the rest of the parking review in due course.


Informal consultation

We are currently carrying out parking consultations in three roads in the borough as part of this review. If you have received a letter and wish to take part in the consultation, please fill in our online survey, for:

by Monday 8 April.

Once the consultations have closed, we will look at the feedback received and decide how to proceed.


Advertisement and objections

Advertisement of the proposals is scheduled to take place in Spring 2019. This will enable people to formally object to, comment on, or support the parking proposals, before a final decision is made.


Approval

The parking team manager, in consultation with the chairman/vice chairman of the local committee and the county councillor of the area concerned, will consider any comments and objections, before making a final decision about which proposals should go ahead, and whether any should be changed or withdrawn.

Once the final decisions have been made, they will be reported on this page and anyone who raised a comment or objection will receive a letter or email to advise of the outcome. There is no 'appeal' stage.
