I am hoping someone in lewes can help. A huge van, registration E913 MCK, has been parked between ours and our neighbours drives on barons down road for over a week. I totally understand people need somewhere to park and it free up here but this has really restricted the views as we leave our sloping driveways. It's really dangerous as we can't see cars approaching and they cannot see us leaving our drive.
There are spaces further up the road that doesn't restrict any views from driveways and I really urge whoever owns this vehicle to move it only 20 meters up the road.
I really hope someone can helps before there is an accident!!!

I know the one you're talking about, it was parked in southover high street for quite some time, it was parked there on a visitor voucher, but never seemed to be occupied, hope it gets moved for you soon, but I wouldn't hold your breath.

It is an ugly pain in the neck. You can't see people crossing behind it or cars coming the other way. I'm surprised the bus can fit past. I know we don't own the road outside our houses but surely there are places more appropriate to leave a vehicle like that than on a residential road.
It says (strangely) it is a library on the side. If someone knows who owns it please ask them nicely if they could move it.

I know it. It was at the junction of Cockshut Road for weeks.

Have you tried talking to the council? If there seem to be people living in it they might not take kindly to people camping on the public highway.

Check the tax disc, if it's lapsed ring DVLA and they'll come and clamp it (not helpful to you I know)
If its over 2500kg it must be left with its lights on from sunset to sunrise. This rarely happens so inform plod. If its causing an obstruction then also give then a ring.

Not much one can do if taxed and insured. good luck.

I've seen it too. Im assuming that the owners had to move it from Cockshut road for Mumford weekend and haven't bothered to move it again. While it's probably legally parked, it doesn't change the fact that the owner is an inconsiderate tosser.

Probably nothing to do with Mumford weekend. I have seen a number of these type of vehicles in Lewes over the past few months. Converted large vans used as dwellings. There is one on Malling, and many down opposite Tesco. Seem to be increasing in number.

If you have a genuine problem with visibility, contact the Police, with the reg.no. They will trace the user, and probably have a quiet word; and ask the owner to move it along to a better position.

Seems to have moved on now. Hooray.
If you read this, thank you for moving and I hope you find somewhere better to park.

Funnily enough I haven't spoken to the fossil fuel industry, or they to me. Your personal remarks about my sanity are becoming as... more
I like the walk along the ouse to Hamsey church, the view from the top of the Castle, Pells pool, the antique shops and boot fair, the lion in the window of the 15c bookshop, keere street
