Highways bosses are launching a consultation into proposed changes to parking and waiting restrictions in Hastings.

East Sussex County Council is inviting residents to give their views.

The authority said the proposals follow requests for changes to existing parking controls or where residents or businesses want new controls to be introduced.

People can complete the online consultation by clicking here.

The consultation opens on Thursday (December 3) and closes on December 24. All comments need to be received by the closing date.

The authority said 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, the county council will need to consider these and present a report to the authority’s planning committee.

Anyone with questions can email parking.escc@eastsussex.gov.uk or ring 01323 466244.
