Parking at Newlands Corner

If you intend visiting Newlands Corner in 2018, please read the information below:

Who owns Newlands Corner?

Newlands Corner is private land owned by the Albury Estate. Surrey County Council has an agreement with the Estate to provide access.

Surrey Wildlife Trust is contracted by the Council to manage Surrey County Council’s countryside estate.

At Newlands Corner, this contract covers activities such as litter picking, clearing paths, dog bins, tree safety and car park maintenance.

What are the changes at Newlands Corner?

With reduced funding available, Surrey County Council is looking at ways that its countryside estate can become self-funding so it is more resilient to changes in public sector finance. As a result, parking charges will be introduced at Newlands Corner in 2018.

There will be 20 mins FREE parking for all visitors. Thereafter, payment will be charged per hour. You will also be able to buy an annual pass, which will enable you to park as often as you like. Blue badge holders will not be charged when parking in the disabled bays.

At the same time there will be some much-needed improvements to the toilets. 

Where will my money go?

The money received from car parking at Newlands Corner will be used to help look after Newlands Corner and maintain the trails, toilets, car park and picnic areas.

As a member of SWT will I get free parking at Newlands Corner?

As Surrey Wildlife Trust does not own Newlands Corner, it is unable to offer free parking to its members. SWT members get free parking at all SWT-owned sites.
