Epsom and Ewell parking review 2023

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

The current stage is: Approval


During March and April 2023, we looked at some parking issues across the borough. These issues had been brought to our attention largely by members of the public, the police, councillors and highway officers since the previous review took place. We have visited, assessed, and prioritised the requests for new or amended parking controls, and wrote a report of our findings and recommendations which should be taken forward.


All proposals have now been agreed by county councillors prior to authorisation being given to advertise them by the Parking and Traffic Enforcement Team manager.

Advertising and objections

The parking proposals were advertised for a 28 day period beginning 07 September 2023. This included the publishing of a formal notice (PDF) in the local newspaper, street notices being erected on site at each location, plus drawings and a statement of reasons are available to view at the bottom of this page. Those properties immediately fronting locations where changes are proposed were notified individually by letter.

The proposals include the introduction of new resident permit schemes. Those residents affected were sent letters with plans and a set of frequently asked questions.

Documents were also available to view at Bourne Hall, Epsom, Ewell Court and Stoneleigh libraries, as well as Epsom Town Hall and Surrey County Council's Merrow complex.

The closing date for comments was 05 October 2023. We are no longer accepting any additional comments.


All objections, support and comment responses will now be compiled into a 'decision report', which will include a recommendation on how to proceed at each location. County councillors and the Parking and Traffic Enforcement Team manager will need to agree this report so that installation of the restrictions can take place. Those who respond to the advertisement will be notified of the decisions by email or by letter prior to installation.

Please note that some proposals may be removed or amended. A summary of the comments, objections and outcomes will be available on this page at the appropriate time, as well as any amended plans.

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


Once approval has been given, we will revisit all of the locations where new restrictions are due to be implemented. Each location will be marked up; final drawings will be prepared and will be issued to the lining contractor for them to install the road markings. At the same time we will place 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 new signs being installed.

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. The final notice will be available to view on this page at the appropriate time.
