More details from petition creator

We are calling on Surrey County Council to scrap the parking charges which are driving residents away from our countryside.

Since parking charges were introduced at commons across Surrey in July 2018, car parks have been empty as dog walkers and nature lovers stay away.

It has become clear the charges, introduced at a cost of more than £330,000 to the taxpayer, are raising much less than expected and deterring people from enjoying our common land.

To support our case we point to the public car parks at Chobham Common, Norbury Park, Ockham Common, Whitmoor Common, Rodborough Common and Newlands Corner which have been largely empty since the charges were introduced.

The charges are supposed to generate £3 million in revenue over 15 years, or £200,000 per year, but if people are staying away from the car parks because of the charges, the initiative has failed.

The county council should admit this and scrap the charges.

Reinstate free parking.

Give us our countryside back.
