New parking controls across Hastings proposed

Proposed changes to parking controls across Hastings have been published for a round of informal public consultation.

Friday, 21st May 2021, 7:00 am
Changes to parking restrictions could be made in a number of Hastings roads

East Sussex County Council’s proposals follow either requests to modify existing controls or where residents or businesses want new measures 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.

To view the suggested changes visit the county council’s website.

The consultation opens today (Friday May 21) and runs until Friday June 11.

The level of support will determine the outcome of the proposals. If there are a number of suggested alternatives, these will be considered for inclusion 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 will be made permanent. If objections are received, council officers will need to be consider these and present a report to the planning committee.

In particular the council 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.
