Tandridge parking review 2021-22

There are a number of stages involved in the review, which are shown below. Because of this we are not expecting to have completed it until the spring of 2022.

The current stage is: Advertisement and objections

Introduction

During August and September 2021, we carried out assessments and site visits for all the parking problems and requests for changes to parking restrictions, which had been brought to our attention since the previous parking review took place. Most of these were reported by members of the public, councillors and highway officers, and some came from the emergency services and bus operators. Following the assessments and site visits, we prioritised the requests and created a report with our recommendations for which new parking restrictions should be introduced.

Committee authorisation

We presented the report to Surrey County Council's Local Committee for Tandridge at its meeting on 3 December 2021 and you can see a copy of it on the Tandridge Local Committee meeting page on our website. It is item 9 on the agenda. The committee approved the recommendations and agreed with moving on to advertising our intention to introduce the new restrictions.

Advertisement and objections

By way of a notice in the Surrey Mirror on 13 January, we are now formally advertising our intention to introduce the proposed new restrictions approved by the local committee. We are also putting up notices in the streets concerned and, depending on the type and extent of the proposal, we may also deliver letters to nearby addresses. This stage gives people the opportunity to comment on or raise objections to any of the proposals.

Towards the bottom of this page there is a document called 'Tandridge parking review 2021-22 - description of proposals', which provides details of the new parking restrictions and controls and why we want to introduce them. In this document, the proposals are divided up by electoral division, and then by town. There are also sets of numbered drawings, which cross-reference with the descriptions.

If you want to comment on any of the proposals, whether for or against, please do so using our online response form. If you are unable, or would prefer not, to use the online form, please send your comments by post to 'Parking Team (Tandridge review 2021-22), Hazel House, Merrow Lane, Guildford GU4 7BQ'. Please note that, as this is part of a legal process, we can only accept comments in writing from the person making them, and cannot accept them over the phone.

Please make sure that we receive your comments no later than Thursday 10 February 2022 as this is the closing date for letting us know what you think.

Approval

The parking team manager, in consultation with the chairman/vice chairman of the local committee, the county councillor of the area concerned, will consider all the comments and/or objections that we receive and make a final decision about which proposals will be implemented. We will then publish a report summarising the objections and comments, detailing the final decisions and the reasons for them on this page.

Implementation

After the final decisions have been made, we will undertake the detailed design of the agreed changes. This involves marking out the extents of the lining on street and preparing the order for our contractors who will then install the signs and road markings. About the same time, we will make the final TRO, with another notice in a local newspaper, which will make the new restrictions come into effect.
