Is there any other parking for motorbikes in the town centre besides the bays opposite the Crown Court and a couple of spaces in the car park in Harveys Way?
I can't think of any other bike bays, but then I've never really looked. While Brighton council seem to hate motorists, they have plenty of free motorbike parking.
Mr C-T has just come back from town moaning about it.

Stick it behind Clifford Dann's office in Albion Street out of hours.

Just bump upon the kerb anywhere there is sufficient space for pedestrians to get past. The parking halfwit don't know how to deal with it and the locals are too gutless

I don't think there is any official parking other than those two.
It's unfair really.

It looks to me like the council have put in some motorcycle bays in Albion Street by Clifford Dann Building. Weirdly they are on the pavement though!

Never mind bikes. Where would you put the ticket anyway. Check out the pavement parking in Fisher St.

There is a motorcycle bay that holds 2 bikes in the Dripping Pan car park.
The railway station car park is also free to motorbikes. Under the bridge, in the dry, has always been the unofficial spot for bikes. I have parked mine there for years. Whether that will still be the case after all the renovations remains to be seen.
Motorcycles can also be parked for free in any normal parking bay. Drivers don't like it but that's the rules.

You were right, Former Biker. I rang the parking shop today and they confirmed that motorbikes can be parked FoC in on-street bays, as long as they are parked perpendicular to the kerb.

This is from the coach and motorcycle parking in Lewes page at new.eastsussex.gov.uk/roadsandtransport/parking/controls/coachmotorcycle
In Eastbourne, Hastings and Lewes motorcycles can park free of charge in any permit, shared use or designated motorcycle bay within a controlled parking zone.
Motorcycles should be parked at right angles to the kerb, any not parked in this way may be issued with a parking ticket.
So my reading on this then is that, like West Sussex, as long as it's a valid on road parking bay, even if it says 'Permit Holders only' or 'Pay and Display' you can park a motorcycle there. (this does not apply to Car parks as they may have their own rules)
