Parking in residential streets

Date: 

Tuesday, 31 March, 2020

We recognise that due to the coronavirus outbreak, there is less parking capacity on some of our residential roads as more people are at home.

Surrey County Council, as the local highway authority, have agreed to temporarily suspend parking restrictions on single yellow lines in quiet residential roads.

It's essential that we maintain safe roads and pavements for pedestrians, and the free flow of traffic, particularly for emergency services and refuse collections. Therefore we'll be concentrating our enforcement on dangerous or inconsiderate parking, for example on corners or blocking access. Illegal parking in disabled bays, at bus stops and on double yellow lines will continue to be enforced.
