Councillor division

Horsell and Goldsworth East (Borough: Horsell, Goldsworth Park, Canalside)

High Street junction with Thornash Road (20015)

Introduce double yellow lines on the junction of these two roads. Vehicles park in Thornash Road, close to High Street. The angles on the junction are quite acute and extra room is needed to negotiate the turn. Larger vehicles sometimes have to back up to complete the manoeuvre. Moving vehicles further back from the junction will help with access.

Meadway Drive junction with Hammond Road (20015)

Introduce double yellow lines on both sides of the southernmost junction of these two roads to improve road safety and sightlines.

Ormonde Road (20015)

Extend the double yellow lines on the western side of Ormonde Road, south of Rosehill Avenue up to the speed table. This extension is requested by the Passenger Transport Team, and will see double yellow lines covering the bus stop, as there is insufficient space to install a bus cage. The aim of introducing these double yellow lines is to prevent private vehicles parking adjacent to the stop. When this happens the bus is forced to stop in the carriageway blocking the road. Boarding and alighting for passengers is made difficult, as they can't take advantage of the raised kerb.

Bury Lane junction Langdale Close (private) (20016)

Extend the existing double yellow lines on the western side of Bury Lane south towards property 'Southwell' to prevent long term parking. Vehicles are parking here daily, and as a consequence moving vehicles are coming around the bend, approaching Horsell High Street on the wrong side of the road, with no space to 'pull in', which is undesirable and dangerous.

Install double yellow lines on the south side of Bury Lane to remove double parking, which is restricting the road width for two way traffic. Double yellow lines are proposed on the southern side of Bury Lane, from Bury Close southwards to Langdale Close. They will continue on both sides of the entrance to Langdale Close to improve sightlines and maintain access.

Church Hill (20073, 20078)

Install double yellow lines on the western side of Church Hill. Extending north from the existing double yellow lines outside property 'Eeche Waye', past Waldens Park Road and continuing northwards to join up with the existing School Keep Clear marking outside Horsell Village School. Vehicles park on the carriageway at the foot of the hill and fully on the footway towards the top. Parking on Church Hill obstructs through traffic. Vehicles parking fully on the footway obstruct pedestrians, of which there is a high number walking to and from school.

Horsell Park Close (20073)

Introduce a 5 metre parking bay outside No's 19 and 20. The new bay will operate to the terms and conditions of Area 4 of the controlled parking zone. This proposal is in response to a request for an additional parking space to be introduced on the straight section of Horsell Park Close by the residents during the controlled parking zone hours.

Chertsey Road (20075)

Originally brought to Committee in January 2017, this proposal has been delayed due to highway works and waiting for the Taxi Rank Order to be amended. Authority given by the committee has now expired and new approval is required.

The Car Club operator would like to convert two existing pay and display parking spaces and (formerly) an overnight Taxi Rank at the northern most end of the eastern parking bay on the eastern side of the road into Car Club Only spaces. The bay to be signed as CC004.

This location has been chosen in consultation with Enterprise Car Club and the bays proposed in Chertsey Road can potentially have access to electric vehicle charging points, so enabling the car club to run ultra-low carbon electric vehicles, minimising air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. They will support the high demand locally for both residential and business use.

Bridge Barn Lane (20089) Amendment for TRO

In the south west corner of Bridge Barn Lane a short length of double yellow line has been installed from the roundabout with Goldsworth Road, northwards to the first parking bay on the western side. The Traffic Order needs to be amended to match what is now on the ground.

Brambledene Close (20089) Amendment for TRO

At the northern end of the close around the turning circle, double yellow lines have been installed following resurfacing. Previously there was a single yellow line with two operational times during the day. Nobody has objected to the installation of double yellow lines, therefore it is recommended to advertise and amend the traffic order to formalise the restriction that is now on street.

Goldsworth Road (20089)

Install double yellow lines on the western side of Goldsworth Road, filling in the unrestricted length of road between Parley Drive and Silversmiths Way to prevent all day parking, which reduces the carriageway width for two way through traffic.

North of Silversmiths Way a single yellow line should be introduced in the unrestricted length on the western side, operating between 1- 2pm Monday to Friday to prevent all day parking. This road space is still required in the mornings and afternoons as a 'drop off' facility for parents delivering/ collecting children from Goldsworth Primary School.

Triggs Lane junction The Triangle (20094)

Upgrade and extend the existing single yellow line to double yellow lines from a point 4 metres north of the boundary of No.10 and No.2 Triggs Lane northwards, and round to the eastern boundary of No.2 The Triangle. At the moment the single yellow line ends at the 'Give Way' marking on the roundabout entrance. Vehicles are parking just beyond where the current restriction finishes, and this creating issues for large vehicles trying to turn out of the slip road to head down St Johns Road. A small parking restriction extension, will maintain free flowing traffic at all times with minimal impact for residents.

Kirby Road (20103)

Extend the existing double yellow lines by 0.8 metres eastwards outside No.23 to give the driveway improved access when vehicles are parked adjacent to it on the highway.

Well Lane junctions with St Mary's Road and Holyoake Crescent (20103)

Introduce double yellow lines on these two junctions either side of Well Lane to prevent vehicles parking so close to the junctions on these two streets. This will improve road safety, sight lines and maintain access.

Slocock Hill (20103)

Introduce double yellow lines on the south side alongside No.1, and on both sides of the junction with Merrivale Gardens. Vehicles park all day here, and are approached suddenly and unexpectedly when coming down the hill and turning the corner to the left. Introducing these double yellow lines will move these vehicles to the opposite side of the road, improving their visibility and safety for all.

Willowmead Close (20104)

Install double yellow lines on the junction and bend within Willowmead Close, outside No's 31 (south side), No.126 (north side) and on the inside of the bend (alongside No.13), to improve road safety, sightlines and stop inconsiderate parking.

Hallington Close (20111)

Introduce double yellow lines on the south side of Hallington Close following on where the existing restrictions finish, up to the side of No.32. Double parking along Hallington Close significantly reduces the road width, resulting in concerns about access for emergency vehicles and rubbish collection.

Knaphill and Goldsworth West (Borough: Knaphill and Goldsworth Park)

Barley Mow Lane (20018)

Extend the double yellow lines, on the south side of Barley Mow Road north westwards to the end of the footway opposite the entrance to the Sports Pavilion. This will maintain access at all times where the road narrows.

Barnby Road (20018)

Extend the double yellow lines on the south side of Barnby Road from outside No.18 east and round into the top of Nursery Road. This will improve access for residents on Barnby Road to their properties and prevent vehicles parking on this length of the highway at all times.

Hillside Close (20018)

Extend the existing double yellow lines on both sides of Hillside Close as you enter from Anchor Hill south eastwards for a distance of 8 metres. Hillside Close is quite narrow and the turn in from Anchor Hill sharp. The current 10 metre length of double yellow lines is proving insufficient clearance for larger vehicles to make the turn.

Queens Road (20020)

Introduce a length of double yellow lines opposite the exit from the car park, on the south side of Queens Road outside No's 28- 32. The road narrows at this point, and vehicles parking outside No's 32, 30 and 28 reduce the road width further at this pinch point, making existing the car park harder.

High Street, Knaphill (20020)

Extend double yellow lines on the south side eastwards from the Sussex Road junction as far as property 102a. The extended parking restriction will prevent vehicles parking on and blocking the footway for pedestrians and help to improve sight lines for drivers existing Sussex Road.

Broadway junction with Sussex Road (20020)

Introduce double yellow lines on the junction to prevent vehicles parking close to the meeting of these two streets, this will improve road safety, sight lines and maintain access.

Chobham Road (20021)

Revoke the existing single yellow line in its entirety, and install an enforceable School Keep Clear (SKC), restriction which will operate between 8.15 - 9.15am and 2.30 – 4pm Monday – Friday instead. The new SKC will be positioned directly in line, and be of the same length as the existing SKC opposite. Slightly shorter in length than the current single yellow line. The no stopping element of the restriction is required, as the existing single yellow line does not prevent the dropping off/ collecting of children. When this happens Chobham Road becomes blocked.

Creston Avenue (20101, 20115)

Introduce double yellow lines on both sides of Creston Avenue westwards from the junction with Lockfield Drive. These restrictions will maintain access and keep the road safe, as parked vehicles on this bus route are encroaching ever closer to the junction.

Introduce double yellow lines on the inside of the bend, opposite Doversmead, up to Meyrick Close within Creston Avenue. Vehicles parking at this point hinder buses turning the corner.

Introduce double yellow lines on the western side of Creston Avenue between Semper Close and the access to the garage block opposite Bryon Close

Sparvell Road junction with Coresbrook Way (20105)

Introduce double yellow lines on the junction to improve road safety and sight lines.

Clifton Way junction with Armadale Road (20106)

Introduce double yellow lines on the junction to improve road safety and sight lines. There is an increasing number of vehicles parking around the junction area associated with the Brockhill Nursing Home.

Robin Hood Road (20115)

Extend double yellow lines on the north side of Robin Hood Road, east of the Creston Avenue junction for a distance of 10 metres to move parked vehicles further away from the junction, improving sightlines.

Robin Hood Road junction with The Withies (20115)

Introduce double yellow lines on the junction to improve road safety and sight lines and stop vehicles parking on the footway.

The Byfleets (Borough: Byfleet and West Byfleet)

Chertsey Road, Byfleet (20008)

Install double yellow lines on both sides of Chertsey Road from the roundabout with the A245 northwards. The proposed new lines will extend up to the southern boundary of No.8 on the eastern side and round onto the southern side of Lake Close on the western side. This will improve road safety and sightlines when entering/ leaving the roundabout. It will also improve visibility at the crossing point for pedestrians. Vehicles are now parking quite close to the roundabout itself which is hazardous and reducing the road width.

High Road, Byfleet (20010)

Install double yellow lines on the north side of High Road from where the existing restrictions end, to the west of Chuters Close, round to the dropped curb outside No.113 in the service road. Vehicles parking here, whether long term or short term to visit the Co-op block sight lines round the bend and obstruct the narrow footway for pedestrians.

Hart Road, Byfleet (20011)

Introduce two short lengths of double yellow lines on the south side of Hart Road, either end of the existing School Keep Clear marking. This will help protect residential driveways, the grass verges and maintain access for through traffic on the bend.

Station Road, West Byfleet (20045)

Revoke the existing two vehicle parking bay outside No's 41-43 and replace with a single yellow line that will operate under the terms and conditions of the outer zone of the West Byfleet controlled parking zone. One property wishes to pay to have a dropped kerb installed. An informal consultation has been carried out with the neighbouring properties and no objections have been received.

Madeira Crescent, West Byfleet (20050)

Install an enforceable 6.6metre disabled bay without time limit outside No's 25 and 27 in this road within the outer zone of the West Byfleet controlled parking zone. In order to do this, and leave as much of the parking bay available for other residents, it is recommended a 1m length of existing single yellow line is revoked at the eastern end. It is also recommended to upgrade the single yellow line on the junction with Brantwood Gardens behind the proposed disabled bay to double yellow lines, to help with access in to and out of the space. double yellow lines will also improve road safety and sightlines on the junction.

Old Acre (20126)

Install double yellow lines on the junction with Pyrford Road. Also install double yellow lines around the turning head outside No's 1 and 2. There is high amount of inconsiderate anti-social parking taking place in this small cul-de-sac. The footpath is unusable due to vehicles parking all over it, and access to the far end is difficult due to the double parking that takes place.

Woking North (Borough: Horsell, and Canalside)

Woodham Road (20058)

On the north side of Woodham Road, just west of the Six Ways roundabout, introduce a length of double yellow lines, from the roundabout westwards in front of the footway and for a further 15 metres beyond. A long line of vehicles parks along here are encroaching ever closer to the roundabout, forcing passing vehicles out onto the wrong side of the carriageway.

Orchard Drive (20064)

Revoke the parking bay outside No.1 Orchard Drive and replace with a single yellow line. This bay is located too close to the junction with Woodham Road to be used safely as an authorised parking place.

In its place it is proposed to introduce a new 5 metre parking bay diagonally opposite, outside No's 4 and 6 Orchard Drive to compensate. The reinstated single yellow line and the new parking bay will both operate under the terms and conditions of Area 4 of the Woking controlled parking zone.

Monument Way East (20067) Amendment for TRO

It is recommended to amend the Traffic Order to match the restrictions that are on the ground in this commercial/ light industrial road. The restrictions starting from Albert Drive and head north are described as follows:

On the western side of Monument Way East revoke the double yellow lines in front of the parking bay up to the kerb build out. This restriction is not installed on the street. Keep the double yellow lines around the kerb build out. Heading north, then revoke a 6 metre length from the Order (not on the ground). Keep double yellow lines in front of the access to Gibbs and Dandy and S.T.G Fabrications. At the northern head of Monument Way East revoke all the double yellow lines around the top of the road. There are no double yellow lines on the ground here, and not having them does not appear to be an issue for access. Heading south down the eastern side towards Albert Drive, keep the double yellow lines as shown, as they are on street. These double yellow lines prevent double parking, and maintain access for the vehicles travelling along Monument Way East.

Wheatsheaf Close (20069)

Upgrade the existing single yellow lines to double yellow lines on the junction of Chobham Road, Wheatsheaf Close and Fenn's Way which are only enforceable during Area 4 controlled parking zone operational times. Parked vehicles which gather here after 11.30am for the rest of the day will be moved further back from the junction, improving road safety.

North Road (20071)

Alongside No.2, opposite Kingsoak House, extend the existing parking bay to a total length of 9 metres (maximum size that can be accommodated in the space available). Remove the current operating terms and conditions from the bay, and instead make the bay 8.30am – 6.00pm Monday – Saturday 30 minutes no return 1 hour. This is in response to requests from 'Woking Mind' and 'Woking Community Furniture Project' who have requested some short term parking close to their premises to allow for drop offs, collections and space for customers.

Courtenay Road (20071)

Install an enforceable disabled parking bay without time limit in Area 2 of the Woking controlled parking zone outside No's 69 and 71. The bay to be 6.6 metres in length and will replace a length of parking bay that operates under the terms and conditions of Area 2 of the controlled parking zone.

Kings Road junction with Walton Road (20071)

Upgrade the existing single yellow lines to double yellow lines on this junction to

Improve safety and maintain access at all times.

Maybury Road (20080)

Outside Beaufort Lodge there are two short lengths of single yellow line that break up the on-street parking. Since Beaufort Lodge has been built, there appears to be no requirement for these lengths of single yellow line. It is therefore recommended to revoke them and join up the 3 parking bays into one longer bay that will provide more parking space and still operate under the terms and conditions of Area 2 of the controlled parking zone.

Return to top


Woking South (Borough: Heathlands, Hoe Valley and Mount Hermon)

Hillside (20001)

Introduce double yellow lines on both sides of Hillside as you enter from Egley Road (A320). The double yellow lines will continue on the eastern side round the bend up to the boundary of No's 1 and 3. It is proposed to leave space for three vehicles on the western side and then introduce double yellow lines alongside and around the inside on the bend by No.2.

Some parking can be accommodated, but not on the bend, up the hill, as you enter Hillside from the main road as this is obstructive and an unsafe practice.

Claremont Avenue junction with Lucerne Close (20026)

Upgrade the existing single yellow line outside Lucerne Close and No.31 that currently operates during the hours of the Area 5 controlled parking zone, to a double yellow line, that will apply at all times. Parents picking up and dropping off children at the nursery impede access to Lucerne Close and greatly reduce the road width, making it difficult for buses and goods vehicles to pass freely when vehicles are parking on both sides of this 'A' classified road.

Elmbridge Lane (20027)

Introduce 10 metres of double yellow lines on the north side of Elmbridge Lane from the entrance road to Woking Park eastwards in front of No's 15 and 17. Vehicles parking here block sightlines, and this is a particularly busy crossing point for school children and college students heading through the park.

Westfield Road junction with Apers Avenue (20029)

Introduce double yellow lines on the junction of Apers Avenue and Westfield Road. From the boundary of No.29 eastwards and into Apers Avenue on both sides. The double yellow lines will extend as far as the bus cage, on the southern side of Westfield Road east of the junction and improve sightlines and access.

Kingfield Road junction with Beaconsfield Road (20030)

Introduce a peak time loading restriction (8.15 – 9.15am and 2.30 – 4pm) to the existing double yellow lines on the eastern side and to the south of the Kingfield Road/ Beaconsfield Road junction. The proposed loading restriction will begin at the western end on the southern side of the existing double yellow lines in Beaconsfield Road, and extend round on to Kingfield Road in front of properties, The Old Forge, Ashington and Boywood.

Westfield Road (20033)

Introduce double yellow lines on the eastern side of Westfield Road south of Old School Place, outside the Moorcroft Centre southwards. The lines will extend to the pedestrian crossing, (but be hidden on the ground beneath the crossing zigzags). These lines will prevent vehicles parking on the footway outside the restaurant.

Bonsey Lane (20033, 20056)

Introduce a single yellow line on both the north and south sides of the lane from where the existing double yellow lines terminate at the eastern end (outside Little Acorns), as far as the eastern boundary of Holly Oak. The single yellow lines will operate 8-9:30 am and 2:30 – 3.30pm Monday to Friday.

In the middle section of Bonsey Lane introduce double yellow lines on both sides of the road, from outside property Holly Oak at the eastern end, as far as property St Olaves at the western end.

Introduce a single yellow line on both sides from the end of these double yellow lines as far as the existing double yellow lines at the western end (outside Barn Cottage). The single yellow lines will operate 8 – 9.30am and 2.30 – 3.30pm Monday – Friday.

Bonsey Lane is the only access road to Westfield Nursey, Primary School and Adult Education centre. It is quite narrow. Any vehicle parking along Bonsey Lane during the morning and/ or afternoon drop off or pick up time obstructs the flow of vehicles in and out significantly.

Heathside Crescent (20086) Amendment for TRO

On the north side of the crescent between White Rose Lane and Station Approach the entire single yellow line has been upgraded to double yellow lines by the developer of the new residential development on the former St Dunstan's Church site. This amendment reflects the change that has been made on the ground.

York Road (20091)

Install an enforceable disabled parking bay without time limit in Area 5 of the Woking controlled parking zone in the lay by in front of No's 40 and 42. The bay to be 6.6 metres in length and will replace a length of parking bay that operates under the terms and conditions of Area 5 of the controlled parking zone.

Mount Hermon Road (20091)

It is proposed to make the parking bay outside No's 1-4 Everlands Close Permit Holders only 8.30am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday. These residents without off street parking have to compete with other permit holders in the area and non-residents for a limited amount of parking space. It is hoped this amendment will improve their situation.

Hill View Road (20092)

At the eastern end of the road, revoke the one vehicle parking bay on the north side, outside Bell Court and replace with a single yellow line.

Opposite extend the existing parking bay to a total length of 40 metres, revoking a length of single yellow line. The extended parking bay will provide additional capacity for 4 vehicles. The extended bay and the reinstated single yellow line will operate under the terms and conditions of Area 5 of the controlled parking zone.

Upgrade the existing SYL that operates during controlled parking zone hours only, to double yellow lines west of the extended parking bay and round southwards into the top of the eastern side of Fircroft Court. This will maintain sight lines when exiting Fircroft Court at all times.

Belgrave Manor (20096)

On the south side of Belgrave Manor, alongside No.41 relocate the whole parking bay 2.5 metres eastwards. Revoking and replacing single yellow lines at either end as necessary. The dust cart is unable to access the bin storage area (down the path by No.40), due to the current position of the parking bay. Therefore double yellow lines are proposed to be introduced behind the relocated parking bay to keep this area free of vehicles, so access is available at all times.

Brooklyn Close (20096)

Reduce in length by 10 metres the parking bay on the south side of Brooklyn Close, alongside No.4. Replace with double yellow lines and extend these double yellow lines into the garage access road on the eastern side behind No.4 upgrading the existing single yellow line.

Also upgrade the existing single yellow line on the opposite side of Brooklyn Close to a double yellow line on the western side of the access to the garage and bin storage area. The dust cart cannot access the bin storage area and rubbish is not being collected. By revoking a length of parking bay and upgrading these two lengths of single yellow line the dust cart will be able to manoeuvre and collect rubbish from Brooklyn Court.

Constitution Hill (20096)

Upgrade the existing single yellow that operates during the Controlled Zone hours across the rear entrance of Craigmore Tower to double yellow lines. The upgraded line will extend from the end of the parking bay on western side northwards to point 9 metres north of the entrance. This will improve sight lines and maintain access at all times to the tower.

Sundridge Road, Howards Road, Rydens Way (20102 and 20128)

On the eastern side of Howards Road introduce double yellow lines from outside No.1 southwards and round to the junction with Sundridge Road. This includes double yellow lines on the junction with Howards Close.

On the western side of Sundridge Road introduce double yellow lines from outside No.2 south all the way to southern arm of Rydens Way. This includes the junction with Stockers Lane, and some lengths of new double yellow lines that have recently been introduced on both sides of Sundridge Road as a result of redevelopment around Woking College. These new restrictions need approval and adding to the Traffic Order.

On the southern side of Rydens Way new double yellow lines have been introduced by developers outside No's 21-23 around a new kerb build out, and on both sides of the junction of Rydens Way and Shackleford Road. The developers have also introduced new double yellow lines further east on Rydens Way outside No's 49-51, around a new kerb build out, and opposite on the north side of the road. In the cul-de-sac section of Rydens Way double yellow lines have been introduced in front of a new shrub bed outside No's 20 and south of it on land that was formally a green and is now being developed for housing. These new restrictions need approval and adding to the Traffic Order.

Guildford Road (A320) junction with Guildford Road (D7304) (20129)

Introduce double yellow lines from the junction of the A320 Guildford Road into both sides of the D7304 Guildford Road by the junction with Pyle Hill (private) and Maybourne Rise. An increasing number of commuter vehicles are parking round the bend on this bus route, all day which is blocking sightlines.

Return to top


Woking South East (Borough: Pyrford and Hoe Valley)

St Peter's Close (20032)

Revoke the enforceable disabled bay without time limit outside No.6. The bay is no longer required.

Poundfield Gardens junction with St Peters Close (30032)

Introduce double yellow lines on both sides of the junction. On the inside of the bend outside No's 17 and 18 Poundfield Gardens, and No.31 on the opposite side, at the top of St Peter's Close. Vehicles are parking round the inside of the bend on the carriageway and footway obscuring vision for everybody.

Pembroke Road (20082, 20087)

Upgrade the existing single yellow lines on both sides of Pembroke Road from 'The Furlough', south, all the way to St Dunstan's Church. This includes the junction with St Pauls Road.

South of the Shaftesbury Road/ Onslow Crescent crossroads, upgrade the existing single yellow line restriction southwards on Park Road to double yellow lines on both sides, and onto the northern sides of both the eastern and western arms of Park Road.

In Shaftesbury Road, east of Pembroke Road upgrade the existing single yellow lines to double yellow lines on both sides up to the entrance to St Dunstan's Church car park and outside Hollybank opposite.

The existing parking bay outside Maybury Court is to be extended to a total of 30 metres to accommodate the vehicles displaced from nearby during the operating hours of the controlled parking zone.

The parking bay on the north side of the eastern arm of Park Road is to be extended by 5 metres westwards. (Outside property Courthope).

These proposed changes have been requested following a Road Safety outside Schools audit which witnessed obstructive and inconsiderate parking along Pembroke Road at school pick up times.

Heathside Park Road (20092, 20093)

At the western end of Heathside Park Road upgrade the existing single yellow lines on both sides to double yellow lines in front of properties White Heath Lodge and Rosehill (north side), and Ranibagh (south side). Install a new 10m parking bay to operate under the terms and conditions of Area 5 on the south side outside Ranibagh to the east of the proposed new double yellow lines.

Extend the existing one vehicle parking bay on the north side outside Gorse Bank eastwards outside Penylan to make it 22 metres in total length. Remove the Area 5 restrictions and make this a free, unlimited parking bay.

There is an increasing number of displaced vehicles parking in Heathside Park Road. Extending the existing double yellow lines at the eastern end of the will keep these vehicles away from the junction with White Rose Lane where they currently congregate on both sides. Removing the restriction and extending the existing parking bay further away from the junction, will accommodate the displaced vehicles in a safer less obtrusive location.

White Rose Lane and Bylands (20098)

On both the north and south sides of White Rose Lane introduce a single yellow line from the end of the existing controlled parking zone boundary eastwards. On the north side the single yellow line will extend to Barrens Close (private). On the south side the single yellow line will extend to the boundary of No. 40 and 40a. The operational days and times of the single yellow line will be Monday to Friday 9.30 – 11.30am.

There will be double yellow lines on both sides of the junctions with Rose Wood (up to the setts), and Barrens Close (to the back of the footway).

Half a dozen vehicles have taken to parking all day on the south side of White Rose Lane just beyond the controlled parking zone boundary. These vehicle are parking half on the footway, overhang drive ways and then clashing with parents dropping off/ collecting children at school times, resulting in localised congestion and frustration.

It is proposed these vehicles can be accommodated by lifting the restriction on the little used on-street parking bays in Bylands (in area 5 of the controlled parking zone), and making them free, unlimited parking bays instead. The bay on the eastern side at the southern end can be extended to accommodate another vehicles. Additionally a new two vehicle free, unlimited parking bay can be introduced at the top of Bylands outside No.9. Safer all day parking can then take place here without disruption to the daily activities that take place on White Rose Lane.

Woking South West (Borough: Heathlands, St Johns and Knaphill)

Elphinstone Close (20003)

Extend the double yellow lines on the eastern side of Elphinstone Close southwards to the boundary of No.157, upgrading the existing single yellow line that is only enforceable during controlled parking zone operational hours.

Extend the double yellow lines on the western side of Elphinstone Close by 3 metres southwards, replacing the existing single yellow line. Thereafter revoke 10 metres of the single yellow line and introduce a parking bay that will operate under the terms and conditions of the Brookwood controlled parking zone. South of this proposed new bay the existing single yellow line will be upgraded to double yellow lines up to the rear boundary of No.161.

These changes are proposed because vehicles park just beyond the end of the existing double yellow lines in Elphinstone Close when the zone is not in operation, causing access issues.

Connaught Road (20003)

On the south side of Connaught Road, east of the entrance to Brookwood Station upgrade a short length of single yellow line outside No.127 to a double yellow line. Vehicles are parking here outside of the yellow lines' operational times making entering the station difficult, especially for the bus, which has to go on to the footway.

Connaught Road (20005)

On the north side of Connaught Road upgrade the existing single yellow line to a double yellow line from the boundary of No.58 eastwards across the front of the electricity sub-station and entrance to the school, up to the kerb build out. Vehicles are parking here, blocking access and compromising pedestrian safety.

Orchard Mains junction Wych Hill (20013)

Install double yellow lines on both sides of Orchard Mains from the junction with Wych Hill south. Double yellow lines will extend 8.5 metres round the inside of the bend, eastwards beyond the end of the footpath to keep the junction are free of parked vehicles, improving visibility for all, and allowing vehicles to manoeuvre into and out of the Orchard Mains cul-de-sac.

On the western side, double yellow lines will extend from Wych Hill round to the dropped curb of No.25.

Vehicles are parking dangerously on both sides of this tight bend reducing the road width to a single carriageway, resulting in localised congestion and reducing visibility for all road users.

Amis Road, Batten Avenue and Copley Close (20023)

Install double yellow lines on all four sides of the crossroads to improve road safety and sightlines. Parking around this junction is particularly bad at school pick up and drop off times.

Barrack Path (20043)

Install double yellow lines on the south side of Barrick Path, extending across Norfolk Gardens properties and continuing up to property 'Tyningham'. This restriction will prevent parking and maintain access at all time along this narrow section of Barrack Path.

Trigg's Close (20094)

Introduce double yellow lines around the turning heads at the eastern end of Trigg's Close outside No's 14 – 21. The turning areas are parked up for the majority of the day, so cannot be used for their intended purpose.

Wych Hill Park (20095)

Introduce double yellow lines on the inside of four bends along Wych Hill Park, and across the entrance to Azalea Court. All day parking is reducing visibility on these corners for through traffic, forcing vehicles onto the wrong side of the road. Installing double yellow lines will improve site lines and improve safety. The four bends are:

  • Around the corner of No.63.
  • Around the corner of No.20 and 22.
  • Around the corner of No.41.
  • Around the corner of the Electricity Sub-station A collecting of vehicles congregate either side of Azalea Court, making it difficult to see oncoming traffic. A short length of double yellow line will provide improved visibility. Scarlett Close (20127) Make the existing advisory disabled bay outside No.15 into an enforceable disabled bay without time limit. The space is regularly occupied by non-blue badge holders to the detriment of those it was intended for.
