The Local Committee received a report on on street parking restrictions withing the borough of Surrey Heath. Officers of Surrey County Council’s parking team had carried out a review and identified changes which would benefit road safety and reduce instances of obstruction and localised congestion. Committee approval was required in order to progress these changes to the stage of ‘formal advertisement’, where the proposed restrictions will be advertised for 28 days and open to comments, support or objections from members of the public.
The Local Committee (Surrey Heath) agreed:
(i) the proposed amendments to on-street parking restrictions in Surrey Heath as described in the report and shown in detail on drawings in annex A, with an additional location for double yellow lines opposite the limited waiting bay outside 56 to 64 Guildford Road, Lightwater, subject to clarification and agreement from the borough council member for Lightwater.
(ii) that the local committee notes the funding as detailed in paragraph 5.1 of this report to proceed with the introduction of the parking amendments.
(iii) the intention of the county council to make an order under the relevant parts of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 to impose the waiting and on street parking restrictions in Surrey Heath as shown on the drawings in annex A (plus Lightwater addition) are advertised and that if no objections are maintained, the orders be made.
(iv) That if there are unresolved objections, they will be dealt with in accordance with the county council’s scheme of delegation by the parking strategy and implementation team manager, in consultation with the chairman/vice chairman of this committee and the appropriate county councillor. An additional member may be invited for comment.
