Reigate and Banstead parking review 2019

Reigate and Banstead parking review 2019

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


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.

Towards the bottom of this page there is a document, which you can download, called 'Reigate and Banstead parking review proposals 2019' which lists all the proposed changes. Please note that they are sorted alphabetically by electoral division, then town. If there is a particular road or town that you are looking for, please open the document and press 'Ctrl' and 'F' to bring up a search box, enter the name and press 'Return'. In the right hand column of the table it tells you the number of the drawing that relates to the proposal, and the drawings are in the other documents below, sorted by electoral division then number.

Approval

The parking team manager, in consultation with the chairman/vice chairman of the local committee and the county councillor for each area, has now considered all the comments and objections that we received in response to the advert and made the final decisions about which of the proposals will be implemented, with or without changes. At the bottom of this page there are a series of decision reports, one for each electoral area. These contain the objections and comments received, followed by the decisions and the reasons for them.

If we did not receive any comments about a proposal, it does not appear in the reports and will go in as advertised. You can see a full list of all the advertised proposals in the document below called 'Reigate and Banstead parking review proposals 2019'.

These decisions are final and there is no appeal stage. We will keep an eye on the impact and effectiveness of the new restrictions and can consider if any changes are needed as part of the next parking review in Reigate and Banstead.

Implementation

Now the final decisions have been made, we will undertake the detailed design of the agreed changes. This involves marking out the extents of the lining on street and preparing the order for our contractors who will then install the signs and lines. About the same time, we will finalise the amendments to the traffic orders, with another notice in a local newspaper, which will bring the new parking controls into effect.
