As part of the new strategy introduced by the local committee, we want to look to take a longer term, more strategic and detailed look at parking and not just reacting to problems that have been brought to our attention, as has been the case during reviews in the past few years.
The strategy will focus on providing parking, if possible, where it is needed. This could include removing or amending existing restrictions. It will also look at introducing new controls if necessary, focusing on safety issues.
As part of this process we are asking your opinions about parking in Hersham and Walton on Thames.
As the highway authority, Surrey County Council is responsible for managing parking on the public highway. However we will also take comments regarding public off street parking which is provided by the borough council as part of this consultation too.
You are more than welcome to also comment on private off street parking (e.g. station car parks, supermarket car parks etc), although we have limited scope to influence their management practices.
There will be some structured questions at the beginning of the survey, and ‘free text’ answers where you can write any comments you have towards the end of the survey.
