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 had 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 different locations across the borough. We then prepared a report of our findings and recommendations.

This review included the advertising of the first on-street Electric Vehicle Charging Points in the borough. It also included 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 were then advertised. A consultation took place during the month of October 2021. Thank you to everybody who participated.

For information, PDF drawings of what was advertised to change are available to view below. Drawings are displayed by County Councillor division. There are separate drawings showing the locations of the first batch of on-street Electric Vehicle charging points across the borough. There are three sets of drawings showing the parking controls introduced 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 in October 2021 was 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 made final decisions on how to proceed at each location where changes were proposed.

The decisions report was distributed to everybody who participated in the consultation and published below. 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 of this parking review has been completed.

A final Traffic Regulation Order has been made and published. The changes made in this review are all now legally enforceable by Civil Enforcement Officers.
