(i) That residents’ parking schemes are implemented in:
• St Christopher’s Green
• Kings Road
• Longdene Road
• Sandrock
• Chestnut Avenue
• Popes Mead/ West Street (near the fire station)
• Tanners Lane (opposite Railway Cottages)
• Courts Hill Road (West)

(ii) That:
a) Waiting restrictions are introduced for road safety and parking management purposes as shown in Annex 3 of the report (the January 2013 proposals), except in Three Gates Lane;
b) Single yellow lines are installed in front of Haslemere Methodist Church, Lion Green (prohibiting parking Monday-Saturday 8.30am-5.30pm); c) Officers be requested not to implement the signs and lines required for the parallel parking outside Costa Coffee in the High Street and at the bottom of Shepherds Hill as required by the existing Traffic Regulation Orders, but to investigate options for highway improvements to improve the current echelon parking in these locations and to bring a proposal to revoke the existing Traffic Regulation Orders to the Committee as part of 

Phase 2.
(iii) That the allocation and cost of residents’ and visitors’ permits in these schemes is as described in section 3 of the report.

Not mentioned in the Decision Notice, the Committee agreed that two parking bays would be allocated in Kings Road for 2 hour waiting for dental surgery customers. These were not outlined in the recommendations.

Worth noting the Methodist Church decision was made on the basis that the church only opens on Sunday. Councillors were not aware of the Open Door coffee bar that opens Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday between 10am and 12pm. They were not aware the church is open for prayer most days from 10 am until 4 pm.
