Reigate and Banstead Parking Review 2023 to 2024

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: Approval


Introduction

Starting in July and continuing through August 2023 we will be assessing on-street parking concerns across the borough by carrying out site visits. These are the concerns that have been brought to our attention largely by members of the public, the police, councillors, and highway officers since the previous review took place. We assess the requests based on road safety, accessibility, congestion, the possibility of just displacing a problem and how many people have requested a change.

After completing all the site visits, we will prepare a report of our findings and recommendations.

Authorisation

We shall present this report of our findings and recommendations to the County Councillors for Reigate and Banstead Borough. Each County Councillor will need to agree and approve the Parking Engineer's proposals for their division. Once agreement has been reached, we shall advertise the proposals, allowing the local community to have their say on the proposals.

Advertisement and objections

We formally advertised our intention to introduce the proposals by way of a notice in the Surrey Mirror on 29 February 2024. Around the same time, we put up street notices on site at each location, and sent a letter or flyer to those properties immediately fronting locations where changes were proposed.

Towards the bottom of the page you can still see a document called Reigate and Banstead parking review 2023 to 2024: Statement of reasons (PDF), which contains a description of all the proposed changes and why we wanted to introduce them. Underneath that are packs of drawings showing the proposals and the statement of reasons tells you which of the drawings shows each proposed change. In the statement of reasons the proposals are sorted by electoral division and then by town and the drawings are combined into packs for each councillor's division.

Following the publication of the notice in the newspaper, there followed a 28-day period, which ended on 29 March 2024, during which people could let us have their views about any of the proposed changes

Approval

We are now analysing and collating all the feedback that we received following the advertising stage before compiling it into a report. This report will be distributed to councillors and the Parking & Traffic Enforcement Manager to read. Together they will make decisions on how to proceed at each location, taking the feedback submitted during the consultation into account.

The final recommendations are presented in a 'Decisions Report', which will be published below on this web page. It will also be distributed to everybody who participated in the consultation to let them know the outcome.

Implementation

Then works orders will be raised with our lining and signing contractors to install the agreed changes.

A final Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) will then be made and published. This will make all the changes made in the parking review legally enforceable by Civil Enforcement Officers.
