Epsom and Ewell 2019 parking review

Coronavirus: suspension of parking related activities

As of 25 March 2020, we are postponing the installation, refreshment or replacement of any road markings or traffic signs relating to parking controls or restrictions in Surrey for a period of three weeks. This is in order to protect our contractors and suppliers and the wider public in the current coronavirus outbreak. This is in line with the council's overarching policy to pause any non-safety critical works on the highway. We will review this decision at the end of the three week period.

There are a number of stages involved in the review, these are shown below.

The current stage is: Implementation


Introduction

In June and July 2019 we carried out our site assessments for the parking control requests that we have received since the last review. These issues have been brought to our attention largely by members of the public, the police, councillors and highway officers. We prioritised the requests for new or amended parking controls, and then created a report of our findings and recommendations.


Committee authorisation

We took the report of our findings (Item 37/19) to the Epsom and Ewell local committee which was held on Monday 16 September 2019 at Bourne Hall, Spring Street, Ewell KT17 1UF.


Advertisement and objections

The parking proposals were formally advertised by way of public notice for a four week period, from 7 November 2019. This included placing a formal legal notice in the free local paper. Street notices were erected on site at each location, plus drawings were made available to view at libraries across the borough, Epsom Town Hall, as well as on this page.

In addition to this, we sent postcards to properties fronting the proposed changes, and letters with frequently asked questions and plans to all residents within the proposed resident permit schemes.

It was during this period that members of the public and residents were able to agree or object to the proposals. Comments on or objections to any of the proposals, had to be received by 5 December 2019. The advertising period is now closed and no more comments can be received.

To view the proposals on any streets that you might be interested in, first open the Statement of Reasons (PDF) attachment below, then browse for the road name you require. Make a note of the associated drawing, then open the applicable drawing file, also below.

Please note that drawing number 41 has been removed from the original proposals submitted to committee.


Approval

All of the feedback has now been received and has been read by the parking team manager, in consultation with the chairman / vice chairman of the local committee and the county councillor of the area concerned. All responses have been given due consideration, and a final decision has been made about which proposals should go ahead, and whether any should be changed or withdrawn.

Please note that as part of the advertising process, restrictions can be reduced or minor amendments made. We cannot increase a restriction or add any additional restrictions as part of this process - this would have to wait for a subsequent parking review.

The results of the consultation (PDF) can be found below with an associated set of amended drawings (PDF).

Please note that as a result of the consultation the proposals on drawing numbers 02, 04, 16, 27, 28, 34, 39, 43, 50, 58, 59 and 61, have been amended. Drawings numbers 31, 44, 65 and 72 have now been removed.

The results for the proposals advertised for St Margaret Drive and St Elizabeth Drive, drawings 68 and 70, will be discussed at the next local committee on Monday 30 March 2020.


Implementation

We will now revisit all of the locations where new restrictions are due to be implemented. Each location will be marked up; final drawings will be prepared and issued to the lining contractor for them to install. At the same time we will place the accompanying signing order and finalise the legal documentation. As signs are manufactured to our requirements there can be a time delay between the lines appearing on the road and the new signs being installed.
