Lewes Parking Review 2017-18 - formal consultation

Opens 27 Apr 2018

Closes 25 May 2018


We receive many requests for new or changes to existing parking and waiting restrictions in Lewes town and district. 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.

We have previously carried out informal consultations and based on the feedback received, we are now formally advertising changes to parking controls.

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

  • tell us which drawing you are objecting to/supporting,
  • explain the reasons, 
  • ensure it is received before the end of the day on 25 May 2018

Consultation closes on 25 May 2018 so all comments need to be received by then.

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 tell us your views by completing the survey.





Why We Are Consulting

The proposals follow requests for changes to existing parking controls or where local residents or businesses want new controls to be introduced. There are also 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 and whether you have any reason for the proposals not being installed.

After the closing date of 25 May 2018 we will process all responses.

Any representations received will be carefully considered. If we cannot resolve the objections then 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 or modify the proposals, or to install them as proposed.

We will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Please contact us by email to parking.escc@eastsussex.gov.uk or telephone 01323 466244.

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