Tandridge parking review 2023

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

  1. Introduction
  2. Authorisation
  3. Advertising and objections
  4. Approval
  5. Implementation


During February and March 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 visited, assessed, and prioritised the requests for new or amended parking controls, and wrote a report of our findings and made recommendations which should be taken forward.


All the proposals were agreed by county councillors prior to authorisation being given to advertise them by the Parking and Traffic Enforcement Manager.

Advertisement and objections

We formally advertised our intention to introduce the proposals by way of a notice in the Surrey Mirror on 17 August 2023. 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 Tandridge Parking Review 2023 - 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, with some split into two parts based on the number of drawings and file size.

Following the publication of the notice in the newspaper, there followed a 28-day period, which ended on 15 September 2023, during which people could let us have their views about any of the proposed changes.


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


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.
