There no bike parking, and my office only opens at 9am.

I sometime bike all the way but often need the car - I think Cameron wants more decisions made locally, I suggest some proper commter parking

Some alternative solutions to consider -

1. Cycle to the station - beware of SWT policy, you will need a folding bike.
2. Leave earlier - Park further away, allow time to walk to the station. Plenty of places around at 5 to 10 mins walking distance from the station.
3. Be bold - ditch SWT and cycle all of the way to London (Plenty of us do). You will need a good bike for it. I can also advise a nice route as well :)

I think it would cause problems if people started to park both sides of Station Road. As it is it seems to work fairly well that people only park on one side. I think the pavements are not wide enough to have parking with one wheel on the road.

Of course, you can if there is no driveways. I still don't know why people / council don't park one wheel on the pavement anyhow, the point is that this would allow people to be able to drive their side of the road not in the middle.

The roads around the station are indeed free parking but as someone above posted its a bit of a lottery.

How far do you come from if you don't mind me asking? Cycle/scooter is an easier option?

Esher and Surbiton both have car parks and faster trains (Esher is more expensive).

You're right re: Ashley car park - it is a bit of a trek... if only they had a zip wire to get you from there to the station !!

It might be worth approaching Esher college to see if they would be willing during holidays - but that's only a temp solution.

Bizarre

A bit like the commuter and residents parking, why is Thames ditton village the only place with no restrictions I wonder

This place is for sale on Weston Green Road: Insanely priced shoebox

Just knock out the front wall and hey presto - instant small garage!

Not ontop of my season ticket especially as there is still a decent walk to the station.

I would consider, this amount perhaps at the Tennis club, Esher college or elsewhere - it amazes me that the council has not cottonened onto that people will pay for convenience, Ashley Road doesn't make sense for commuters.

There is about 20-40 potential bays down Western Green Road if they forgo or relandscaped the pavement. I would certainly do annual ticket there.

If you spend £10 per week (£525 annual) you could get a season ticket to the Ashley Road car park and always be guaranted a space. Alterntiavely you could spend 10 minutes every day driving around Thames Ditton hoping to get a space before your train goes.

Where can I park close to the station? Is Esher college possible during their holidays?
