The recently refurbished Brewery Road Car Park shows that the Borough Council is investing in parking provision and demonstrates its commitment to making Woking's town centre car parks a safe, welcoming environment for drivers.

"Many companies are making vast sums yet are getting away with inadequate signing which becomes only a subjective issue at appeal."
Meanwhile, Councillor Peter Box, Chair of the Local Government Authority’s Economy & Transport Board, added: "CCTV camera cars mainly act as a visible deterrent and, as a result, account for just 2 per cent of total parking income while less than 1 per cent of motorists appeal fines issued by CCTV enforcement."
