About This Blog

This is a ‘news and views’ blog run by unpaid volunteers. It is about the topic of parking in Haslemere and was launched in February 2012. In our first year we gathered views from individuals to see if there was majority support or opposition for parking proposals for our town. In our first year we only had three readers in support of SCC’s and WBC’s parking proposals. On our 1st birthday we changed our focus to campaign for open and full consultation for proper parking solutions in Haslemere.

In Haslemere, Surrey County Council has responsibility for on street parking and Waverley Borough Council has responsibility for off street parking.
