Lewes Parking Review 2023-24 - informal consultation

Closed 13 Oct 2023

Opened 22 Sep 2023


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 also received comments about problems with parking in the Landport area. To gather more information we are asking for your views to see if a parking permit scheme may help to address them and if residents would support this. 

The proposals for this review are shown in the drawings in the 'Related' 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 22 September to 13 October 2023. All comments need to be received by 13 October.

We are responsible for installing yellow line road markings where there is a need to restrict parking to address safety issues or where parked vehicles may hinder traffic flow. Double yellow lines in Bishops Lane Ringmer, Allington Road Newick and Glynn Road Peacehaven will be proposed during the formal stage of this review, we expect this to be in November 2023. At that time all will have an opportunity to make a representation either in support or opposition to them.

East Sussex County Council takes data protection seriously. For further information please see the Privacy Notices at the bottom of this page.

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 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.

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 taking the time to look at these proposals.

What happens next

After the closing date of 13 October 2023 we will process all responses.

The level of support or the reasons for objecting 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.
