Ellice Road Car Park update

On 6 December, Councillor Martin Fisher, Leader of Tandridge District Council announced his intention to propose to the Strategy & Resources Committee that the redevelopment of the Ellice Road car park be postponed to reduce disruption to businesses.

The statement continues, “Having reflected and after listening to businesses and residents, I have reached the conclusion that it would be in the best interests of the town to delay the start of the car park by a year, while the gasholder site is redeveloped. We need to ensure the town remains an attractive and accessible place to visit, to support existing businesses and encourage new ones in, which is why we must carefully manage the potential risks that could arise from two large construction projects taking place at once.

“However, I am keenly aware parking in the area remains an issue, so I have asked officers to look at alternative ways we can quickly increase parking capacity in the short term to accommodate shoppers, visitors and businesses, before the car park is redeveloped. One of the options could include creating more capacity in the Council Offices car park, possibly by creating an additional level.”
