For years local residents in Westborough have had to put up with inconsiderate, dangerous and sometimes illegal parking on local roads, footpaths and verges. Frequently this results in roads being blocked and residents being unable to park near their homes.
Much of this is by staff and students from the Royal Surrey County Hospital (RSCH) and the University of Surrey who park in Westborough due to these institutions failing to provide enough parking for the people who travel by car to work or study at them.
We, the undersigned, call on the University of Surrey and the RSCH to take immediate action to provide enough dedicated parking for their own staff and students.
We further call on Guildford Borough Council, Surrey County Council and Surrey Police to more stringently enforce parking regulations in Westborough and to clampdown on illegal and unsafe parking in the area.
