Formal advertisement of parking proposals
Together with the County Council, we are reviewing the on-street parking situation in various locations throughout our borough.
Because of concerns raised and opportunities that have arisen, we have undertaken an assessment of various parking issues. Officers have discussed these with your local borough and county councillors. We reported the draft proposals subsequently developed to the 13 December 2017 meeting of Surrey County Council's Guildford Local Committee.
The Local Committee has now formally advertised the proposals developed. The deadline to submit representations was Friday 16 February 2018. A decision will be taken on the feedback.
We recognise that the introduction and amendment of parking restrictions can, in some cases, cause the availability of parking to reduce, make use of the spaces less flexible, and cause parking to displace to nearby areas. Therefore, it is important that any changes to the controls extend far enough to deal with the issues present and any potential for them to move elsewhere, while not being overly restrictive to residents and other road users.
Roads where changes to controls are being proposed
Guildford Town Centre Controlled Parking Zone - Car Club space proposals
Shalford - no waiting at any time double yellow line proposals
The public notices for the two proposed amendment orders, statements of reason and traffic regulation order appear below:

The Chairman/Vice-Chairman of the Committee will decide whether to introduce the proposals as advertised, or make minor amendments. Depending on the nature of the representations, they could also choose to refer the matter to a full meeting of Surrey County Council's Guildford Local Committee. If major changes are required, it could re-advertise the proposal, or defer to changes to a future review. Alternatively, it could choose not to implement any new parking restrictions.
If changes to the parking restrictions are agreed, we would anticipate their implementation by mid-2018.

When we publish the report, it will be available to view on our Parking review committee reports page.
