Surrey County Council launches consultation on charging at rural car parks


Cabinet Member for the Environment Mike Goodman said: “This consultation is a vital part of our plans to preserve and improve Surrey’s beautiful countryside for years to come.

“We want to hear our residents’ views on what matters to them as we face the challenge of dealing with unprecedented budget pressures, particularly from rising need across our care services.

“With the council needing to save more than £100 million from its annual budget our aim is to make the management of Surrey’s countryside self-financing.

“Charging at our car parks could form part of that with those benefiting most contributing more so everyone can still enjoy the wonderful Surrey countryside we all value. The money raised would be ring-fenced to maintain and improve our countryside.

“I hope residents will contribute to this consultation so they can help shape the decisions we have to make.”

The consultation, which closes on 6 November, can be found here.
