Runnymede parking review 2021

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

The current stage is: Implementation


Introduction

During April and May 2021, we looked once again at on-street parking issues across the borough. These were issues of concern 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 prioritise requests for new or amended parking controls in different locations across the borough. We then prepared a report of our findings and recommendations.

This years review includes the advertising of potentially the first on-street Electric Vehicle Charging Points in the borough. It also includes measures to control the parking around Windsor Great Park where visitor numbers have increased dramatically in the past 18 months


Committee authorisation

We presented this report of our findings and recommendations to the Runnymede Joint Committee at its meeting on 6 July 2021. The written report and associated drawings are Item 10 on the agenda. Councillors read, discussed, asked questions of officers and agreed the recommendations in the report giving their approval for all the proposals to be formally advertised and consulted upon with the public.


Advertisement and objections

All the proposals approved by the committee members have now been advertised. The consultation took place during the month of October 2021. Thank you to everybody who participated. All responses are now being read and considered.

For information PDF drawings of what was advertised to change are available to view below. Drawings are displayed by County Councillor division. Additionally there are separate drawings showing the proposed locations of on-street Electric Vehicle charging points across the borough, and three sets showing the parking controls we are proposing to introduce on the streets around Windsor Great Park.

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


Approval

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

Now that the process is complete, the final decisions report has been distributed to everybody who participated in the consultation. If you would like a copy of the report please contact us and we'll send a copy to you. The decisions are final for this review. If you would like a location assessed please submit a request via the parking review process page


Implementation

Implementation of this parking review has coincided with Surrey Highways entering a new contract with Ringway. Whilst we have been able to get the road signing half of this project completed, we are now entering into a contract with a new road lining company. Once we have an agreed way of working with them, we'll be carrying on with the lining half of this project. Apologies for the delay.

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.
