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: Advertisement and objections


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

We are now formally advertising our intention to introduce the new parking controls and restrictions by publishing a notice in the Surrey Mirror on 27 June 2019. At about the same time, we will be putting up notices on lamp posts near where the new restrictions will be and writing to those people who will be most directly affected. This is the time when you can let us know what you think about the proposed controls and restrictions.

Please see Reigate and Banstead parking review proposals 2019 (pdf) which lists and describes the proposals and explains the reason why we want to install them; it also provides the number of the drawing that they are on. If you want to find a particular location, open the document, press 'ctrl' and 'F' on your keyboard together and a search box will appear, type in the name of the location (e.g. 'Park Road') and press the return key. There are also drawings showing the proposals, which have been sorted by electoral division and appear at the bottom of this page.

If you want to comment on any of the proposals, whether in support or objecting, or anything else, please use our online response form.

If you would rather write to us, please send your letter, quoting 'R&B parking review 2019', to Mr D Curl, Parking Team Manager, Hazel House, Merrow Lane, Guildford, Surrey GU4 7BQ.

Please note that the closing date for letting us have your comments is Thursday 25 July 2019.

Approval

The parking team manager, in consultation with the chairman/vice chairman of the local committee and the county councillor of the area concerned, will consider any comments or objections that we receive and make a final decision about which proposals will be implemented. We will then publish a report summarising the objections and comments, detailing the final decisions and the reasons for them on this page.

Implementation

After 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 TROs, with another notice in a local newspaper, which will bring the new parking controls into effect.
