I believe that it is. Utterly ridiculous. Every time Bank holidays are mentioned to ESCC they reply saying that shops are open therefore the scheme should be in force. Given that daft logic then Sundays should not be exempt. At the very least Bank Holidays should be treated like Sundays. In all aspects they are apart from this crass scheme.

Moan, moan, moan. Ooh I have to pay 50p to park and it's ruining my life! I drove into Brighton last week and it cost £3.20 an hour to park - that's something to moan about. Most councils seem to have parking restrictions on bank holidays escc are no different.

A number of London Boroughs Sunday rules apply, for example Westminster, H&F, Hackney..... Enforcing it cannot be cheap with overtime.

'Seaford - I like the sound of the word.
It means people can live free, talk free, park free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose.
Some words give you a feeling. Seaford is one of those words...

Bank holidays are busier then Sundays, hence the need for parking control, idiot.

Its not about controlling parking though its about making money!

Exactly Smiler. Making money plus LDC / ESCC / LTC / ABC obeying the conditions laid down by central govt: do this or we'll reduce your funding / penalise you / other punishment. Strange how punishment is not allowed in schools any more ('discrimination') but is at the core most govt funding policy (except civil servant salaries, bonuses & pensions of course).......could write a book about this.

I sat in the "tuck-inn" today and yesterday and watched 3 traffic wardens patrolling seaford. Seen them around Newhaven just before 6pm ticketing all the people trying to sneek a half hour or so. They are in both places pretty much on a daily basis, but generally do a hit and run attack.

Lol There's a minimum of two (usually 3) Ceo's driving too and from newhaven, seaford and peacehaven all day everyday (- sunday). Also NCP weren't out on new years day (or xmas/boxing day, they were in, brighton, hove and worthing) and they can come out on sundays just they don't do it regularly xXxXx
