Parking consultation now open

Residents can now comment on plans to change parking rules in around 60 roads in Reigate & Banstead.

The Surrey County Council consultation runs until Thursday 17 May 2018.

The aim of the parking review, which takes place roughly every 15 months, is to improve parking availability, congestion and road safety.

Over 300 requests from residents and others helped generate the list of changes, which was approved for consultation in December by Surrey’s Local Committee.

Within Reigate itself, plans include new double yellows on the south side of Reigate Road (the A25) from Chart Lane to the police station.

Double yellows in parts of Flanchford Road and Croydon Road are also in the list, as are new time-limited bays in Trehaven Parade, Woodhatch.

After the consultation closes, the parking team manager will work with local county councillors to consider comments and decide which changes will go ahead and which should be amended or withdrawn.

Details of what’s proposed, and how to comment, are on a Surrey County Council webpage – within that, there’s a list of roads (PDF).

The consultation is separate from a review of on-street parking expected later this year, which may propose charging in the borough’s town centres.
