Secret parking place

If you are fed up with driving round looking for a parking space in Lewes, just park your car on the pavement in Cliffe High Street. Any time of the day, just leave your car there. Go off shopping, take your time, have lunch, meander back to your car and...Hey presto! It will still be there, it wont have been towed away and you wont even get a ticket or a fine. why not give this unofficial car park a try, everyone else seems to!

There is free parking in all Wealden District; thanks mainly to my late father and one other district councillor making a huge effort to overturn the Liberal plans for charging, about 20 years ago. Wealden means Hailsham, Heathfield, Crowborough, Wadhurst, Polegate; plus all the villages. And Uckfield, a victim of its own success, as parking is hard to find.
Don't abuse it , observe the time limits, and long may it continue.

How is it that people can park for free for as long as they like in a pedestrian precinct?
I though one of the ideas of Living Cliffe was to reduce traffic down Cliffe High St.
Who should be sorting this out?

I'm guessing people are overstaying on the loading bays, but I'm blowed if I know how they get away with it.
Mind you, the florist that used to be where Lewesiana is now used to have their van on the loading bay all day long, whether they were loading or not.

It's a mystery. The other mystery is how many vehicles are completely exempt from normal rules which prohibit through traffic. It seems to apply in particular to large 4x4s and - for some reason - new Minis. You're fine unless you choose the one day in living memory when the police set up a trap and ticketed everyone...

I get really peed off at all the people who drive down Cliffe High St from the car park. It's just becoming a cut through. Plenty of them 4X4's or yummy mummy types who think they bloody own the place.
