Dear Resident, we have received a large number of complaints in regards to vehicles parking down Old Avenue waiting gt to enter St George’s Hill in from approximately 7.00AM in the morning.
We are aware of the issue and Police have made many attempts to deal with this issue before but have no legal powers to prevent the vehicles parking down the road unless they are obstructing dirveways. If a vehicle is ever preventing you form exiting your driveway call the Police.
We have spoken ti the security at St George’s Hill about the matter and we are working together to find a compromise, EG: Asking drivers to switch their engines off when waiting. If this does not succeed then Elmbridge Council will get involved in regards to the vehicles causing a nuisance.
