Eastbourne parking review 2015

Closed 8 Jun 2015

Opened 16 May 2015


We receive many requests for new or changes to existing parking and waiting restrictions in Eastbourne. To manage these and make effective use of our budgets we have a priority ranking system. All requests are considered and locations given the highest priority are progressed as part of our regular reviews.

The proposals for this review are shown in the drawings in the 'Related documents' section at the bottom of this page. Please take the time to look at these carefully and then complete the online survey.

At this informal stage of the Eastbourne review we are looking for your views on the proposals.

In particular we would like to know:

  • which road you are commenting on,
  • whether you support or do not support the proposals,
  • your reasons for supporting or not supporting the proposals, and
  • any other comments you may have

Consultation closes on 8 June so all comments need to be received by then. Please include the drawing number of the map with your reply.

Why your views matter

The proposals follow requests for changes to existing parking controls or where local residents or businesses want new controls to be introduced. There are areas where safety or access issues have been identified and it is felt necessary to introduce restrictions such as yellow lines.

We want to hear your views on the proposals. Your feedback will help us decide whether the proposals need to be modified before formal changes are advertised.

Thank you for taking the time to look at these proposals.

What happens next

After the closing date of 8 June 2015 we will process all responses.

Depending on the level of support for the proposals we will decide one of the following ways forward.

  1. If there is a low level of support for the proposals there will be no further action.
  2. If there are a high number of suggested alternatives, these will be considered and incorporated in the final proposals if considered appropriate.
  3. If there is a high level of support for the proposals a draft Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) will be written and advertised allowing 28 days for formal consultation. If there are no objections the restrictions will be introduced and the draft TRO made permanent. If objections are received, we will need to consider these and present a report to Planning Committee for a decision.
