The haslemereparking.com website was set up on 9th February 2012 with the aim of providing an open, sensible and democratic forum to share information and opinion about parking in Haslemere. Most importantly, its aim has been to put the conversation in one place and put as much content here, for and against, about parking proposals submitted by the councils that provide parking in Haslemere. (On street parking is overseen by Surrey County Council and off street parking is overseen by Waverley Borough Council.) We’ve been unable to publish articles/letters that have been appeared in the Haslemere Herald, as this local paper publishes content behind a paywall. We have not published replies from Councillors (Borough and County) as their e-mails are accompanied by legal disclaimers. However, many residents have independently submitted comments/articles/letters to the forum and we’ve had some good debates.
Over the past five months, haslemereparking.com has had 44,006 page views by the 2,002 readers who have visited the site. The site is still manned by volunteers. We have published 202 blog posts.
