The introduction of No Waiting At Any Time restrictions in Camber will alleviate congestion and maintain traffic flow on Camber Road & New Lydd Road to allow emergency vehicles to pass through without issue during, but not limited to, days with significant visitor numbers and to preserve and improve the amenity of the area.

The Experimental Traffic Regulation Order will enable the County Council to monitor the operation of the No Waiting At Any Time restriction, to assess if they are working effectively and that restricting the use of the grass verges for parking by vehicles does not adversely affect road safety. The Council would make appropriate modifications if required.

Why your views matter

We want to hear your views on the experimental restrictions and whether you support them or have any reason for them to be amended or not being made permanent.

The extent of the restrictions are shown in the plan in the 'Related documents' section at the bottom of this page.

Please take the time to look at this carefully and tell us your views by completing the survey.

If you do or do not agree with the experimental restrictions being continued you can make a representation. For your representation to be fully considered you must make it in writing and you will need to:

  • explain the reasons, 
  • ensure it is received during the 6 month consultation period and no later than 7 January 2023.

What Happens Next

After the closing date of 7 January 2023 we will assess all responses.

All representations received, either in support of or objecting to the experimental restrictions being continued will be carefully considered. If it is considered successful, the County Council would make the Experimental Order permanent (subject to any objections being received during the initial 6 month consultation period (ending 7 January 2023), or any subsequent 6 month consultation period) within a maximum period of 18 months.

If there are any unresolved objections, we will include them in a report to be presented to Planning Committee.

Anyone who makes a representation may speak at the Planning Committee meeting. We will write to you closer to the time to advise of the meeting date and time. The Committee will consider all objections and will then decide whether to abandon the scheme or to make it permenant.

We will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Please contact us by email to or telephone 01323 466244. 

Thank you for your interest in this consultation and for taking the time to look at the proposals.
