Elmbridge parking review 2021-22

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 November 2020.

We are currently assessing the requests based on road safety, accessibility, congestion, the possibility of just displacing a problem and how many people supported the change.

Once this process has been completed, we will publish a report of prioritised recommended parking changes for the borough.


Committee authorisation

Our report of recommendations was approved by the local committee on 14 July 2021 (see item 10). The committee also added a scheme to introduce an overnight HGV parking ban on Redhill Road, Cobham, and a scheme to revoke some existing double yellow lines in Avondale Close, Hersham.


Informal consultation

Following local committee approval, are now undertaking informal consultations for potential parking schemes at a number of sites across Elmbridge. If you have received a letter from us and would like to respond to the consultation in your road, please select the relevant location below (links open in Surrey Says):

The consultations close on 29 October 2021, after which we'll analyses the responses received and decide how to proceed. We'll update this page as soon as we've made those decisions.


Advertisement and objections

Once the committee has provided initial approval of the proposals, they will be advertised to allow for public comments and objections.

As part of the process we are obliged to take steps to make people who may be affected by the proposals aware of them. This includes a mandatory newspaper advert and making physical copies of the proposed orders available for inspection. We also erect street notices at affected locations and write to properties fronting any proposals in order to raise awareness of them.


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objections, before making a final decision about which proposals should go ahead, and whether any should be changed or withdrawn.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.


Implementation

Once the final decisions have been made, we will go back on site to carry out 'detailed design' in order to specify the new signs and lines required and place a works order with our contractors.

At the same time, we'll finalise the traffic regulation orders, and publish a 'made notice' in the local press.

Once the traffic orders are made, and the new signs and lines are in place, the new restrictions will come into effect.
