Epsom and Ewell parking review 2020-2021
There are a number of stages involved in the review, these are shown below.
The current stage is: Advertising
During September and October 2020, we looked at some parking issues across the borough. These issues had been brought to our attention largely by members of the public, the police, councillors and highway officers since the previous review took place. We have visited, assessed, and prioritised the requests for new or amended parking controls, and have written a report of our findings and recommendations which were presented to committee.
We presented a report of our findings to the Epsom and Ewell Local Committee which was held on 07 December 2020. You are able to read the report in full on the Epsom and Ewell Local Committee webpage.
Advertising and objections
We will formally advertised the parking proposals, that were approved by the Epsom and Ewell Local Committee, early in 2021.
Formal advertising lasts for 28 days. A legal notice will be published in the local newspaper. We will also put up notices in the streets where changes are proposed for people to see. All properties adjacent to the road where changes are proposed will be notified individually by letter or flyer.
The 28 days of formal advertising allows residents and interested groups, to give their own opinion on what the council is proposing to do. Opinions will need to be submitted in writing. More details will be published on this page in due course.
All of the feedback that we receive during the advertising stage will be 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 will be given due consideration and a final decision will be made about which proposals should go ahead and whether any should be changed or withdrawn.
There is no 'appeal' stage. If you do not like a decision that has been reached by members and officers who consider the objections then you will need to submit a new request for the location to be assessed again in the next Epsom and Ewell parking review.
Once approval has been given, we will 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 will be issued to the lining contractor for them to install the road markings. At the same time we will place the accompanying signing order. As signs are manufactured to our requirements, there can be a time delay between the lines appearing on the road and new signs being installed.
We also make the required changes to the legal traffic regulation orders. The new controls and restrictions then come into effect and will be enforceable.
