Reigate and Banstead parking review 2019

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


Introduction

During December 2018 and January 2019, we looked at parking problems across the borough. These had been brought to our attention mostly by members of the public, councillors, highway officers and other local representatives since the previous review had taken place.

We visited the locations and assessed the problems, and prioritised the requests for new or amended parking controls, before creating a report of our findings and recommendations for which should be taken forward.

Committee authorisation

We presented our report to the Reigate and Banstead Local Committee at its meeting on 4 March 2019 for initial approval. You can see a copy of the report on the local committee meeting page on our website. It is item 8 on the agenda, listed as Annual Parking Review.

Advertisement and objections

On 27 June 2019, by way of a notice published in the Surrey Mirror, we formally advertised our intention to introduce the changes to the parking controls and restrictions in Reigate & Banstead borough as part of this parking review. We also put up notices on lamp columns in the streets concerned, and, depending on the type and extent of the proposal, delivered post cards to nearby addresses. There then followed a period of 28 days (up to 25 July) during which people could let us have their views about any of the proposals.

Approval

The parking team manager, in consultation with the chairman/vice chairman of the local committee and the county councillor for each area, considered all the comments and objections that we received in response to the advert and made the final decisions about which of the proposals would be implemented, with or without changes.

Implementation

Our contractors have installed the necessary signs and completed most of the yellow lines. There are a few gaps, where cars were parked, but they will return to fill these in in due course.
