Residents are to be asked for their views on proposals for new parking restrictions at over a dozen locations around the borough.
Members of the council’s traffic management committee recently approved 13 schemes in principle – most of which had been suggested by local people.
The majority of the new restrictions are on junctions where parking is currently causing a regular obstruction and is putting pedestrians and other drivers at risk.
The locations being looked at for improvements include:
- Brigstock Road (between Colliers Water Lane and Frant Road)
- Woodcote Grove Road / Chipstead Valley Road
- Higher Drive opposite Bencombe Road
- Densham Drive / Higher Drive
- Markfield (Nos. 131 and 132)
- Plough Lane (between Foxley Lane and The Bridle Road)
- Pampisford Road / Chancellor Gardens
- Purley Oaks Road / Beech Avenue
- Wettern Close / Purley Oaks Road
- Barn Crescent / Lower Barn Road
- West Way / South Way
- Sloane Walk / Orchard Way
- Waddon Close
Councillor Phil Thomas, cabinet member for highways and environmental services, said: “We regularly receive suggestions for safety improvements, and officers also monitor accident data to identify areas where there may be a problem. These sites have been fully assessed and we feel that the proposed changes will make a significant difference.”
After formal publication of the consultation on these schemes, which will be locally advertised, there will be 21 days for anyone with an interest to submit their comments to the council.
