Could bus depot be moved?

Seeing your article concerning the proposed parking permit scheme being mooted round Vale Road, Chatham Road etc, would it not be more pruden for East Sussex County Council to look at moving the bus depot onto one of the local industrial estates?

This would almost certainly remove up to 100 parked cars from the area.

It is easy to install these parking permit schemes without giving any thought to the knock-on effect it will have on the Silverhill shops.

It appears that they have not thought this scheme through, and are electing to take the easy option.

The Asda grounds will not be an option as at most times it is full to the brim with Asda customers.
