There are a number of stages involved in the review and these are explained below. This parking review is now underway.
The current stage is: Committee Authorisation
During November and December we assessed on-street parking concerns across the borough by carrying out site visits. These concerns had been brought to our attention largely by members of the public, the police, councillors and highway officers since the previous review took place. After completing the site visits we prepared a report of our findings and recommendations.
We presented this report of our findings and recommendations to the Woking Joint Committee at its meeting on the evening of 4 April 2022. You can read the more about this committee and the parking report using the link.
Advertisement and objections
The parking proposals that got approved by the Woking Joint Committee on 4 April 2022 will now be formally advertised by public notice. We are aiming to do this in June 2022.
All properties adjacent to locations where changes are proposed to be made, will be notified individually with either a letter or A5 card through the door.
The 28 days of formal advertising, allowed residents and interested groups to give their own opinion on what the council is proposing to do.
You will also be able to view and download drawings of all the proposals at the bottom of this web page. All the documentation will also be available to view in libraries across the borough as well as both Woking and Surrey County Council offices in Woking town centre. They will be presented in PDF format, and displayed by County Councillor division.
Please note that any Woking town centre proposals will be displayed in the Goldsworth East and Horsell Village division.
All the feedback that is received during the formal advertising will be collected together into a report. This report will presented to the Joint Committee Chairman, the County Councillors and the Parking Team Manager to read. Taking the feedback submitted into account, together they decided on the best way forward and make final recommendations on how to proceed at each location where changes were proposed.
These final recommendations are presented in a 'Decisions Report', which will be published on this web page.
Installing the agreed changes on the roads will then take place. The whole process should take about 9 to 10 months.
A final Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) will be made and published at that time. This will make all the changes made in the parking review legally enforceable by Civil Enforcement Officers.
