Next week Wealden District Council will consider what should be done to improve on street parking arrangements to manage driver behaviour in town centres and around the rail stations.
In December CrowboroughLife told you that a discussion to consider the introduction of Traffic Wardens was postponed at the last moment to allow Councillors more time to consider all the options.
Now a paper going to next week’s Cabinet meeting proposes the status quo with the Police continuing to be responsible for enforcement. Cabinet has previously concluded this approach will not be a permanent solution, however, there is a view that the introduction of Pay & Display machines to fund Traffic Wardens is not appropriate.
Council Leader Bob Standley recommends they continue the dialogue with Sussex Police on how enforcement can be managed and talk to town and parish Councils about parking issues in their areas.
The matter will be discussed at a meeting on Wednesday 31st January: council.wealden.gov.uk.
