Guildford on-street parking review

We are introducing new parking controls and making changes to existing parking controls in locations across the borough.

In partnership with Surrey County Council, we have been undertaking a review of the on-street parking situation and the possible need for new controls and changes to the existing restrictions in and around Guildford. This is in response to concerns raised about the issues caused by inconsiderate parking, the availability of parking space, and to accommodate newly constructed vehicle crossovers and requests for disabled parking spaces.

Following the formal advertisement of proposals in July 2017, Surrey County Council's Guildford Local Committee agreed to introduce various changes at its icon September 2017 meeting [6.93MB] .  In the majority of cases, the changes being introduced are identical to those previously advertised. Those that have been revised, or abandoned completely are highlighted in the list below.

Additionally, in February 2018, further proposals were formally advertised. These related to the introduction of additional yellow line waiting restrictions in Shalford and the provision of additional car club spaces within Guildford. The feedback from this was circulated to the relevant borough and county councillors, and considered by the Parking Manager in consultation with the Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the icon Local Committee in March 2018 [1.31MB] . The changes being introduced are identical to those previously advertised.
