Reigate and Banstead 2017/18 parking review

There are a number of stages involved in the review, these are shown below. The current stage is: Advertisement and objections


In the autumn of 2017 we looked at parking problems across the borough. These had been brought to our attention largely by members of the public, the police, councillors and highway officers, since the previous review had taken place.

We visited, assessed, and prioritised the requests for new or amended parking controls, before creating a report of our findings and recommendations for which should be taken forward.

The parking team manager, in consultation with the chairman/vice chairman of the local committee and the county councillors for each area, will then consider all the comments and objections that we received following the advertisement and make the final decisions about which proposals should go ahead, and whether any should be changed or withdrawn.
