Woking parking review 2022

Site assessments for this parking review have now been completed. We are working towards presenting a report of recommendations to the 4 April 2022 Joint Committee meeting.

Byfleet - Chuters Way, Digby Way and High Road informal consultation

Closed on 13 December 2021. This informal consultation built upon an initial High Road proposal from 2020, and the responses we got back from it. The original petition was centred around the parking needs of some residential properties on High Road only. Listening, reading and responding to what was said in the responses last year, we widened this informal consultation to include Chuters Close, Digby Way and the need for short term parking to visit local shops, businesses and amenities.

Results

30 properties consulted with, 14 responses received, a 47% response rate.

Of the 14 responses received, seven were in favour and seven against developing a parking scheme further.

Chuters Close, eight responses received, three in favour and five against.

High Road, four responses received, all in favour.

Digby Way, two responses received, both against.

Results were presented to, and discussed by, the members of the Woking Parking Task Group on 15 December 2021. The conclusion being that there is insufficient support to develop this parking scheme further in the Woking 2022 parking review.

Woking parking review 2020

Site visits for Woking parking review were carried out during September 2020. A report of recommendations following the site visits was presented to, and approved by, the members of the Woking Joint Committee. Please view Item 11 of the virtual November 11 2020 meeting.

The proposals were then formally advertised during March and April 2021. A total of 374 responses were received. If you submitted a response, thank you for taking part. After the consultation closed, all the feedback was read and assessed by Officers and Councillors. After deliberations and discussions, final decisions were made. The final decisions report has now been published and is available to read on the Woking parking review.

After some delays due to resource issues with our contractor, the approval restrictions are being installed across the borough at the moment and will be enforceable.
