With extra visitors coming to the Village during lockdown, we have seen some examples of very bad parking.  The relevant authority depends on the nature of the obstruction.  Often it will be GBC but in serious cases where it is dangerous it will be Surrey Police. 

The Jet Team (Joint Enforcement Team) at Guildford Borough Council can be contacted on 01483 505050 or by email on: JET@guildford.gov.uk

There is also a useful page on Surrey Police website, part of which says: "The first step is to speak to the owner politely and ask them to move"

The webpage on surrey police is:

As per the Highway Code, it is illegal to park:
opposite or within ten metres of a junction
over a dropped kerb
on a pedestrian crossing (including the area marked by the zig-zag lines)
in spaces reserved for Blue Badge holders, residents or motorbikes (unless entitled to do so)
in marked taxi bays, cycle lanes or red lines
near a school entrance, bus or tram stop
anywhere that would prevent access for Emergency Services

If you notice a vehicle parked in any of the above areas, please report it to your local council who may issue the owner with a penalty charge notice.

If the vehicle is parked:
on zig zag lines
dangerously
In a way that would prevent emergency vehicles from accessing

These need to be reported to the Police as a crime on 101.
