    (i)            A petition has been received from Farnham Town Councillor George Hesse, which contains 76 signatures and reads:

     

    Crondall Lane/West Street Mini Roundabout

    We, the undersigned, do petition Surrey County Council’s Waverley Local Committee, to instruct its Highways Department to urgently reconsider its position concerning a new mini roundabout at the West Street and Crondall Lane junction, in light of the 120 new houses at “Hopfields” which will soon be under construction, which will lead to greater congestion and danger at this junction.  We believe it is absolutely necessary to build this as soon as possible, with associated landscaping, before the houses are completed.”

SCC CONSULTATION ON SERVICE CHANGES IN WAVERLEY (SERVICE MONITORING AND ISSUES OF LOCAL CONCERN) pdf icon PDF 162 KB

    Despite making significant savings in previous years, the County Council needs to make further savings of £85m in the next year.  To achieve this and continue to provide services to residents some changes will need to be made.  On 30 October 2018, the County Council launched a series of consultations on five service areas to shape those services for the future: children’s centres; concessionary bus fares; special educational needs and disability (SEND); libraries and cultural services; community recycling centres.

     

    The Local Committee is invited to consider and discuss the proposed service changes as they relate to the Waverley local area.

WAVERLEY ON-STREET PARKING REVIEW 2018 (EXECUTIVE FUNCTION) pdf icon PDF 247 KB

    Officers of Surrey County Council’s parking team have carried out a review of on-street parking restrictions within the borough of Waverley and identified changes which would benefit road safety and reduce instances of obstruction and localised congestion.

    Additional documents:

    Decision:

    The Local Committee (Waverley) resolved to AGREE that:

     

    (i)            the proposed amendments to on-street parking restrictions in Waverley as described in this report and shown in detail on drawings in annex A are agreed.

     

    (ii)           funding in 2019/20 would be required to implement the parking amendments and the committee will need to contribute a maximum of £30,000 - as detailed in paragraph 5.1.

     

    (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 Waverley as shown on the drawings in annex A is advertised and that if no objections are maintained, the orders are made.

     

    (iv)         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.

     

    Reason: It is recommended that the waiting restrictions are implemented as detailed in Annex A.  They will make a positive impact towards:

    ·         Road safety

    ·         Access for emergency vehicles

    ·         Access for refuse vehicles

    ·         Easing traffic congestion

    ·         Better regulated parking

    ·         Better enforcement
