Eastbourne parking review 2019 - initial consultation

Closes 5 Apr 2019

Opened 15 Mar 2019


We have received a number of requests to extend parking controls in Eastbourne because of parking difficulties caused by local workers, businesses, and other visitors leaving their vehicles parked all day.

We try to manage the needs of all users and we wish to seek your views on parking in your road and whether you support the proposed changes.

Please note that we are considering changes to four different areas in Eastbourne. More information about the proposals in each area can be found at the bottom of this page.

Why We Are Consulting

We would like to know if you think that the proposed changes would be beneficial to your area.

The review is at an early stage and no decisions have been made. Your views will determine whether parking controls are introduced in the area, no decision will be made until the results of this questionnaire have been assessed.

After the closing date of 5 April 2019 we will process all responses. East Sussex County Council takes data protection seriously. For further information please see the Privacy Notices at the bottom of this page.

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 is a high number of suggested alternatives, these will be considered. We will then draw up detailed proposals and undertake informal consultation.
  3. If there is a high level of support for the proposals, detailed plans will be drawn up and further informal consultation will take place.

If the informal consultation shows that the majority of local addresses support the introduction of the scheme, we will consult again as part of the formal consultation and a draft Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) will be written and advertised allowing 21 days for 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.

Your comments will help us reach a decision whether to proceed with the proposals. We therefore encourage you to participate in the consultation process.

Thank you for taking the time to respond to this consultation.
