“Haslemere Parking Proposals
My inbox has been busier than ever in the past few weeks as I have been inundated with comments from Haslemere residents, many of whom are concerned about Surrey County Council’s parking proposals. I understand that the public meeting on Tuesday received a strong turn out and people made their views very clear. Parking around Haslemere Station has been a nightmare for ages but we obviously need to make sure we find the right way to sort it out. The long term solution must involve increasing capacity at the station car park, but in terms of what can be done now people need to make their feelings known in the consultation. I intend to be closely involved in helping to work out a sensible way forward, including meeting with Cllr Steve Renshaw early next month.”
The meeting with Cllr Renshaw is due to take place tomorrow.

Local MP Jeremy Hunt is urging local residents in Haslemere, concerned about new parking proposals, to submit their comments to Surrey County Council’s consultation. Jeremy has been inundated with emails and letters on the issue which proposes on street parking charges in the Town Centre and around the station. He has long been an advocate of improvements to parking at the station and will be meeting with Network Rail to discuss how this can be achieved.
