Formal advertisement of parking proposals

Together with Surrey County Council, we are reviewing the on-street parking situation in various locations throughout the 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 September 2018 and March 2019 meeting of Surrey County Council's Guildford Local Committee.

The Joint Committee agreed to formally advertise the proposals developed. As part of this consultation we wrote directly to almost 10,000 addresses about proposals covering 137 roads. This consultation closed on Friday 11 October.

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, whilst not being overly restrictive to residents and other road users.

    Your privacy

    Any comments will be considered by the Parking Manager in consultation with the Chairman/Vice-Chairman of Surrey County Council's Guildford Local Committee and the relevant Borough and County Councillors. Our report will be a public document. While we will not publish your name and address, we will publish your representation. So, for example, if you make comments about how the proposals will specifically affect your property, the public may be able to identify your premises from your comments.

    For more information about how we use your personal information, please read our privacy statement or contact the Parking Office on 01483 444559.

    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 Joint 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 were agreed, we would anticipate their implementation by mid 2020. To keep up to date with progress, visit the County Council's website, using the above link.
