Parking news and updates in Guildford

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.

Guildford Borough Council carry out parking reviews across the borough and administer the Guildford town centre controlled parking zones.

Contact the borough council parking office to request:

  • new parking restrictions, or amendments to existing restrictions
  • an amendment to any restriction in the controlled zone
  • a permit or a dispensation to park within the controlled zone

Surrey County Council install advisory disabled parking bays across Guildford borough, except where there are existing parking controls. If there are existing controls, such as in the town centre controlled parking zone, disabled bays can only be installed with the agreement of the borough council at a time when a parking review is taking place. Disabled bays installed in the controlled zone are not advisory ones but can be enforced.
