Elmbridge parking review 2019-20

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


The deadline for requests for new parking controls to be considered as part of this parking review was at the end of June 2019.

Having carried out a 'desktop' study to remove any requests that were clearly unfeasible, undesirable or erroneous the list of requests was reduced from about 215 to 160. Site visits were carried out as necessary to assess the remaining requests, and they were prioritised based on road safety, accessibility, congestion, the possibility of just displacing a problem and how many people supported the change. A Parking Task Group meeting was also arranged to discuss some of the larger schemes.

This lead to a report of prioritised recommended parking changes for the borough, as found below.

Committee authorisation

Our report of recommendations was presented to the local committee on 5 December 2019 for initial approval. The report - which was item 9 of the committee's agenda - is available to view or download from the link above.

The committee approved the report, with some additional schemes included for Wey Road and Round Oak Road in Weybridge, and St Mary's Road, Thames Ditton.

Informal consultation

We are currently carrying out a consultation with residents of a section of Weston Green Road, Esher, about the idea of a permit parking scheme for their road.

If you would like to take part in the consultation, please:

before 7 January 2020.

Once the consultation has closed, we will look at the feedback received and decide whether or not to formally propose and advertise a scheme here.

We have sent letters, FAQs, and a drawing to residents of the road. Copies of theses documents are available below:

Advertisement and objections

Following approval of the proposals at local committee, we will 'advertise' them to allow for public comment. This includes a newspaper advertisement, and we also erect street notices at affected locations and write to properties fronting any proposals. We then usually allow 28 days for public comments to be received before making a final decision.


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objections, before making a final decision about which proposals should go ahead, and whether any should be changed or withdrawn.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


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.
