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.
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.
At this informal stage of the Lewes review we are looking for your views on the proposals.
In particular we would like to know:
which road and drawing number you are commenting on,
whether you support or do not support the proposals, and your reasons, and
any other comments you may have.
The consultation period runs from 6 January to 29 January 2017. All comments need to be received by 29 January.
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. 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 29 January 2017 we will process all responses.
The level of support will determine the outcome of the proposals. If there are a number of suggested alternatives, these will be considered and included in the final proposals.
If the proposals go forward then the draft Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) will be written and advertised allowing 21 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.
