Elmbridge Borough Council E-Petition details


We the undersigned petition Elmbridge Borough Council to • Support the Proposal contained in the Weybridge Parking Review 2017/18 as submitted to all Weybridge councillors by the Weybridge Society and Weybridge Town Business Group (see: www.weybridgesociety.org.uk). • Find a workable solution to improve parking in Weybridge for the benefit of residents, retailers and shoppers through the reduction of unacceptable parking congestion in residential roads around the Town’s two main retail areas. • Accept the Proposal’s conclusions that it is a lack of off-street car parking facilities which is the primary cause of the inconvenience being suffered by residents in those roads, and which also acts as an unnecessary deterrent to short-stay shoppers visiting the Town. • Accept the findings of the Proposal, and work jointly with Surrey County Council to provide the holistic parking solution for Weybridge promised in 2016 but not delivered. • Complete a feasibility study into the expansion of the car parks mentioned in the Proposal by 30/06/18

A partnership between the Weybridge Society and the Weybridge Town Business Group completed its extensive data-gathering project carried out with Weybridge residents and businesses in November 2017.
The partnership submitted a Proposal to improve parking in Weybridge based on the findings of the project to all Weybridge, and relevant Surrey, councillors on 21 December 2017.
The Proposal was then formally discussed with those councillors at a meeting on 12 February 2018 and gained broad support.
The intention of this Petition is to demonstrate and confirm to the Council the public opinion towards the inadequacy of off-street parking facilities in the Town, and reflect the strength and depth of feeling on the issue encountered by the partnership from residents and businesses during the project .
