There are a number of stages involved in the review, and these are explained below.
The current stage is: Advertising and objections
Advertisement of this parking review is currently on hold due to the coronavirus outbreak. The council has instructed all staff to work from home as much as possible and only to travel for work where it is essential to deliver critical services, suspended all non-safety critical works on the highway, and closed public libraries. For these reasons and others, it is therefore not possible to properly conduct the legal procedure of advertising the proposals at the current time. We will update this page when further information about the expected timeline is available.
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.
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
We are now in a position to formally advertising these proposals. What is proposed can be seen on the PDF drawings below. This consultation lasts for 28 days and will take place at the earliest opportunity.
We will update this page when further information about the expected timetable is available.
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.
