Consultation questionnaire, and Friends of Lewes response 24 February 2017
The East Sussex County Council has received a number of complaints regarding cars and other vehicles parked on footways in Lewes High Street. They are seeking the views of the public and to find out if there is support for the introduction of measures to address these issues.
The ESCC is considering the following measures: the introduction of a footway parking ban in the High Street (on the north side from Westgate Street to Eastgate Street), together with a loading on the north side of High Street. This would be supplemented with new loading bays placed outside the White Hart Hotel and opposite Albion Street. The existing loading bays outside Cummings bookshop and near the memorial will remain in place.
The public’s views will determine whether these parking controls are introduced in the area, and no decision will be made until the results of this questionnaire have been assessed. You are therefore encouraged to participate in the consultation process.
