Pay-as-you-go cars coming to Surbiton

For Rent sign

Rent and ride parking bays approved for next April.

Surbiton neighbourhood committee has approved a proposal to turn two mixed use parking bays next to the Claremont Road clocktower into designated 'car club' spaces.

Club car schemes allow for public self-service short-term car rental, which can be booked for as little as 30 minutes or as long as 6 months.

A traffic management order will be published in January, and if no objections are raised, the council will ask rival car clubs to bid for the Surbiton parking spaces.


Can't see that taking PAYG parking spaces is particularly good for the shops in Surbiton. I've always thought that the station car park should rent out spaces to the likes of streetcar etc ...

Of course, it's entirely feasible that they aren't interested in coming out to this area ...

I think the whole point of the story was that the likes of Streetcar are interested in coming to the area.
It's probably harder to get permission from Surbiton station than from whoever this neigbourhood committee is.

Interesting business, obviously growing, riding on green sympathies for marketing.
