Eastgate, Banstead One-Way Proposal

Closed 14 Jan 2021

Opened 10 Dec 2020


Thank you for your interest in our One-Way proposals in Eastgate, Banstead. 

The legislation we must follow before introducing this scheme means that we need to allow objections and comments from the public to be considered before a final decision is reached about whether or not to go ahead with our preferred scheme in its current form.

The proposal:

It is proposed to install a one-way system in Eastgate, Banstead along it’s entire length (231m), from the junction with Nork Way to the junction with Green Curve.


Following concerns raised by residents that there is insufficient on street parking in the vicinity of Nork Village shops, an investigation was carried out by Surrey County Council’s parking team to look into opportunities for increasing on street parking in the area. This investigation found that it was not possible to use an area of grassland between Eastgate and A2022 Fir Tree Road as a car park, because this is common land. However, the section of carriageway on Eastgate which runs from the east to south east is wide, with a wide section of footway outside the local shops. By slightly narrowing this wide section of footway, in order to widen the carriageway, additional on street parking can be provided in the form of echelon parking. However, the creation of echelon parking bays will narrow the existing carriageway and will create parking bays that can only be reasonably and safely accessed by drivers travelling in a specific direction. Therefore in order to safely provide echelon parking bays to increase on street parking, Eastgate will need to be converted into a one-way street.
