Runnymede parking review 2019

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

The current stage is: Implementation

Advertising of this parking review has now taken place.


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

After a delay due to Coronavirus, we formally advertised these proposals from 28 August until 25 September 2020. The schemes proposed and why can still be read on the Statement of Reasons and viewed on the PDF drawings below. The legal advertising notice is also available to read below.

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

Approval

All the feedback that was received during the 28 day formal advertising period, was then collected together into a report. The report was presented to the Joint Committee Chairman, the County Councillors and Borough Councillors who sit on the Joint Committee to read. Taking the feedback submitted into account, together we have decided on the best way forward and made final decisions on how to proceed at each location where changes were proposed.

This process has been completed and the final decisions are published below in the document titled 'Runnymede parking review 2019/ 20 Decision report', for everybody to read. These decisions are final. If you would like a location reviewed again, please submit a request for its inclusion in the next Runnymede parking review.

Implementation

Installing the agreed changes on the roads of Runnymede is now taking place. With unpredictable weather at this time of year, we aim to complete the installation during the first quarter of 2021.

A final Traffic Regulation Order (TRO), will be made and published on this page, so the changes made in the review then become legally enforceable by Civil Enforcement Officers. Due to current Coronavirus restrictions, libraries and civic buildings are closed to the public and this document will be published online only.
