Car parking is the big bugbear in Lightwater. It’s something yours truly has campaigned about for many, many years. Goodness me, it was in 2010 I presented a report on the topic [See my report below photos] to Surrey County Council. Since then other local councillors have promised concerted action, but to no effect. Seems they’ve lost interest.
Nothing changed, except for more double yellow lines restricting parking places. Nearby Sunningdale shopping centre was similarly blighted by inadequate parking provision. The difference is that their car parking has been improved. Just goes to show that an enlightened local authority recognises the need for car parking to boost retail vibrancy, and road safety. See photos below.
Don’t let highways argue that backing into the main road cause problems. It doesn’t, and Sunningdale proves it’s fine
I don’t need to post photos of car parking in Lightwater; you know how ugly and inadequate it is. Surrey Heath Borough Council seem to only to be interested in Camberley town centre, even to the extent of ripping up the perfectly adequate Knoll Walk.
