Runnymede parking review 2019

There are a number of stages involved in the review, and these are explained below.

The current stage is: Advertising and objections

Advertising of this parking review has been delayed, but is now taking place from 28 August 2020 until 25 September 2020.

It should be noted that it will not be possible to have plans available for public viewing in libraries or council offices. Street notices will be put up at each location, and all properties where changes are proposed will be sent letters or A5 cards so they are aware.


Introduction

During August and September 2019, 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.

Committee authorisation

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 and consulted upon with the public). You can read the report in full on the Runnymede Joint Committee webpage. It is Item number 31/19.

Advertisement and objections

From 28 August we are formally advertising these proposals. What is proposed and why can be read on the Statement of Reasons and viewed on the PDF drawings below. The legal notice is also available to read below. The consultation will last for 28 days.

If you have read a street notice and or received a letter or A5 card through your letterbox, and wish to support, object or comment upon any of the proposed changes, you can do so by completing this feedback form by Friday 25 September.

Please note that any Egham town centre proposals will be displayed in the Englefield Green division.

If you prefer, feedback can be submitted by post to the following address:

Runnymede parking review 2019, Hazel House, Merrow Depot, Guildford, GU4 7BQ

Approval

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.

Implementation

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.
