Letter: New Parking Restrictions Near Lawn Road

From Eddie Ward

I have just seen the new parking restrictions that are being proposed by GBC.

If you wish to park in Lawn Road, Millmead Terrace and Bury Fields, things will be getting worse.

The restricted parking times will now be from 0830-2100 Monday to Sunday and there will be far fewer parking spaces. Lawn Road will have a 50 metre stretch that will be a no waiting zone. Others may well change to “Residents Parking”, which I suppose one cannot argue against.

Similar changes will be introduced in the other two roads. Copies of the proposed changes are attached to several lamp posts in the affected roads.

A spokesperson for Guildford Borough Council responded:

“The proposal for extending the hours that parking is controlled  in the Lawn Road/ Millmead Terrace/ Bury Fields/ Bury Street area is a result of concerns raised by residents who find it difficult to park particularly in the evenings and at weekends.

“The main proposal is to increase the time which controls apply in parking bays and on single yellow lines from 8.30am to 6pm Monday to Saturday to 8.30am to 9pm Monday to Sunday (seven days a week).

“In Lawn Road there is a proposal to convert some bays that can currently be used by non permit holders for up to 2 hours or permit holders without time limit, so they can only be used by permit holders.  The proposal extends the hours which no parking applies on the single yellow lines to 9pm in the evening Monday to Sunday but does not increase the amount of single yellow line.

“We want to hear peoples comments and views and the proposals can be viewed at:”

Comments can be sent to: by March 31 2017.

    Its not just residents trying to park there. Increase the number of resident bays, but not at the expense of people trying to park to visit, not just residents, but the NHS clinics.
