In the past quarter, the growth of ‘Your Waverley’s’ car parking services has shown a healthy increase across the borough.
Waverley’s car park usage is now operating at close to pre-covid levels, which it says is an indicator of the strength and resilience of the borough’s high streets, say officers.
From April 1st, on-street parking enforcement passed to Surrey County Council, which appointed NSL as its contractor. The transfer included the management of parking permits in the borough; Surrey will now carry this out.
The Overview & Scrutiny Committee for Services members heard that the transfer had gone smoothly. Waverley officers were now working with their county colleagues to assist them whenever needed.
Proposals are now being considered for the future structure of the car parking services, which includes looking at the potential to work closely with Guildford Borough Council, which has a more extensive car parking portfolio.
