We control parking to improve road safety, reduce congestion and pollution, balance parking provision and ensure access for emergency vehicles.
Road markings and / or signs indicate where there are parking restrictions.
You can view the current parking restrictions in Elmbridge, Reigate and Banstead, Spelthorne, Surrey Heath, and Tandridge on our interactive maps, and those in Guildford borough, on Guildford Borough Council's website.
Current parking restrictions in Surrey
We introduce parking controls by making a traffic regulation order (TRO) under the provisions of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.
A TRO is made up of two parts;
- a written part (the order or amendment) that explains the rules governing the parking controls, and
- plans which show where the controls are.
If the information isn't available online it can be emailed or posted to you on request.
Request a change
You can submit requests via the parking review process page for new parking controls or restrictions, or changes to existing ones.
