Epsom and Ewell 2017 parking review

There are a number of stages involved in the review, these are shown below.

The current stage is: Approval


Introduction

In December 2016 and January 2017 we carried out our site assessments for the parking control requests that we have received since the last review. These issues have been brought to our attention largely by members of the public, the police, councillors and highway officers . We prioritised the requests for new or amended parking controls, and then created a report of our findings and recommendations.

Committee authorisation

We took a report of our findings to the Epsom and Ewell local committee (Item 8/17), which was held on 6 March 2017 at Bourne Hall, Spring Street, Ewell KT17 1UF. These were agreed with some minor additions and amendments.

Further to this, some additional proposals were taken to committee (Items 17/17, 22/17 and 23/17), which was held on 19 June 2017 at Ewell Court House, Lakehurst Road, Ewell KT18 5BY.

Advertisement and objections

The parking proposals were formally advertised by way of public notice for 5 weeks from Thursday 10 August to Thursday 14 September 2017. This included placing a formal legal notice in the Sutton and Epsom Guardian on 10 August, (a copy of which can be seen below). Street notices were erected on site at each location, plus drawings were made available to view at libraries across the borough, Epsom Town Hall, as well as at the bottom of this page.

The advertising period was extended to five weeks as it took place during the school summer holidays.

In addition to this, we sent postcards to properties fronting the proposed changes and letters with FAQs and plans to all residents within the proposed resident permit schemes.

All comments had to be with us by 14 September 2017.

If you are still interested in viewing the proposals, these can be found below. To find the location you are interested in, please first open the 'Statement of Reasons', and search for the road in question (you can press 'Ctrl' and 'F' to bring up a search box). Then check the location number and drawing number. Then open the correct drawing pack and scroll through until you find the drawing you need. The drawings are arranged in numerical order within each pack.

Approval

All of the feedback received during the advertising stage has been read by the parking team manager, in consultation with the chairman/ vice chairman of the local committee and the county councillor of the area concerned. All responses have been given due consideration, and a final decision has been made about which proposals should go ahead, and whether any should be changed or withdrawn.

The final decisions are now available to read at the bottom of this page. Anyone who raised a comment, objection or voiced support will also receive a letter or email to advise them of the outcome.

There is no 'appeal' stage. If you do not like the decision reached by members and officers who consider the objections then you will need to submit a new request for the location to be assessed again in the next Epsom and Ewell parking review.

Implementation

Now that final approval has been given, we have visited all of the locations where new restrictions are due to be implemented. Each location has been marked up; final drawings have been prepared and will be issued to the lining contractor, for them to install.

At the same time we will be placing the accompanying signing order. As signs are manufactured to our requirements there can be a time delay between the lines appearing on the road and the new signs being installed.

The restrictions will be implemented in two stages. The first stage will simply be the double yellow lines, which do not require any upright signing.

The second stage will involve the implementation of any remaining double yellow lines, where signing has to be amended to make them legally enforceable, single yellow lines, parking bays and resident permit schemes. All of these proposals require upright signing and / or permit allocation, where there can be a time delay for manufacture. All of the proposals will be implemented in early 2018.

We also make the required changes to the legal traffic regulation orders. The new controls and restrictions then come into effect and will be enforceable.
