There are a number of stages involved in the review, these are explained below. To complete all the stages of the review takes between 9 to 12 months.
The current stage is: Committee authorisation
During August and September, we were looking once again at on-street parking issues across the borough. These were concerns that have 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 requests for new or amended parking controls in 130 different locations across the borough. We then prepared a report of our findings and recommendations.
We presented this report of our findings and recommendations to the Runnymede Joint Committee at its meeting on the evening of 25 November 2019. Councillors gave their approval for all the recommendations to be advertised (consulted upon with the public). You can read the report in full and view drawings of each proposal on the Runnymede Joint Committee webpage.
Advertisement and objections
Formal advertising lasts for 28 days. A legal notice at the start of the 28 days will be published in the local newspaper. We shall also put up notices in the streets where changes are proposed to be made for people to see. All properties adjacent to the road where changes are proposed to be made will be notified individually by letter.
The 28 days of formal advertising allows residents and interested groups, to give their own opinion on what the council is proposing to do. Opinions must be submitted in writing.
To help you do that, a feedback form will be created. A link to it will appear on this page. You will be able to fill in this form online to submit your opinions.
Also at the formal advertising stage, you will also be able to view and download drawings of all the proposals on this web page. These will be presented in PDF documents and displayed by County Councillor division. Also available to read will be a copy of the legal notice and a statement of reasons detailing each proposal.
Please note that any Egham town centre proposals will be displayed in the Englefield Green division.
All the feedback that has been received during the 28 day formal advertising period, will be collected together in a report. This report will then be presented to the Joint Committee Chairman and the County Councillor for your area to read. Taking the feedback submitted into account, together we will decide on the best way forward and make final recommendations on how to proceed at each location where changes are proposed.
These final recommendations will be presented in a 'consideration of objections' report. Everybody who wrote to us with feedback during the formal advertising stage will be written to individually informing them of the outcome. The consideration of objections report will also be published on this page for everybody to read.
Installing the agreed changes on the roads will then take place.
A final Traffic Regulation Order (TRO), will be made and published, so the changes made in the review then become legally enforceable by Civil Enforcement Officers.
