Runnymede 2018 parking review

There are a number of stages involved in the review, these are shown below. Due to the number of stages in the review, we are expecting to have completed it by the summer of 2019.

The current stage is: Implementation

Introduction

During June and July 2018 we looked at 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 visited, assessed, and prioritised the requests for new or amended parking controls, and then wrote a report of our findings and recommendations.

Committee authorisation

We presented this report to the Runnymede Joint Committee, at its meeting on 19 September 2018. You can read the meeting agenda, report and decision by following the meeting link. The report also includes drawings of what we proposed and presented, together with reasoning for each location. Drawings are presented by county councillor division.

*Please note: Egham town centre falls within the Englefield Green division.

Advertisement and objections

The parking proposals approved by the joint committee were then formally advertised by public notice. The formal consultation closed on 14 December 2018. Thank you to everybody who participated.

Drawings of what was advertised are still available to view by county councillor division below. A copy of the formal legal notice is also available to read below along with the statement of reasons.

Approval

All of the feedback received during the advertising has now been read by the parking team manager, in consultation with the chairman/ vice chairman of the joint committee and the county councillor of the relevant division. All feedback has been given due consideration, before final decisions were made about which proposals should go ahead, and whether any should be changed or withdrawn completely. The Parking Task Group meeting in January 2019 completed this process.

Now final decisions have been made, they are available to read at the bottom of this page in a document called the 'Consideration of Objections' report. Anyone who raises a comment, objection or support for a proposal will now receive a letter or email to advise them of the outcome.

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 Runnymede parking review.

Implementation

Now final approval has been given, we have once again visited all the locations where new restrictions are due to be implemented. Each location has been marked up and final drawings have been issued to the lining contractor. Installation of the lining is substantially complete.

We have put together the accompanying sign order. The signs have now been installed.

The final Traffic Order was made and came into effect on 29 April 2019.
