There's your bottle with a genie in, you have 3 wishes on how to improve the town. Anything you like but nothing political, nothing nasty.
For once, let's be nice, have a bit of fun and maybe, just maybe, someone may look and think "hmmmm, you might be on to something there"
1) Make Market Lane one way and put a mirror above the chippy so people can see traffic coming down Fisher Street.
2) Stop all cars and bikes going along Cliffe from 9am to 5pm....keep it pedestrianized whilst the shops are open
3) increase car parking. Enforce Tesco to open up the area they bought from Kings church many moons ago and allow more parking there.
Happy new year

1. Get the parking wardens to do something to benefit the community like challenging people who, for example, don't pick up their dogs mess, drop litter, park in disabled bays without a badge, park in Cliffe High street when not loading, drive all the way through Cliffe High street etc.

2. A go-kart track and many more facilities for kids

3. A community workshop / makerspace / mens shed

1) cleaner streets - I agree with Andy B. The town's a real, embarrassing mess
2) better parking solutions for delivery vehicles along the High Street
3) better enforcement of vehicular passage rules in Cliffe High St

1) Affordable housing for the next generation (affordable meaning a couple on minimum wage who work in Lewes can get a mortgage to top up a deposit and not only affordable to those who get £100ph)
2) Capped rents for commercial properties in towns (especially for new start ups). Lets fill some of the work space we have before we build new
3) Parking to become free again in residential areas (im talking about you Winterbourne) so i can visit my family without either waiting till the weekend or after 6pm (yes, they really havent moved it even though town parking is free after 5pm)

Closure if Cliffe High st to traffic between 9 and 6 pm.
Free residents parking
Massive tree planting scheme in town and countryside around - both for aesthetic and flood alleviation purposes. Trees are our lifeline against global warming.

1) waymarked mountain biking & cycling trails signposted from the town centre onto the downs connecting up to the south downs way.
2) bike routes like the cuckoo trail. Perhaps a cycle way along the river that connects upto the ringmer cycleway and towards Firle beacon cycleway.
3) create more walks and loops around the railway land.

These are my own personal selfish wishes, so I'm sure people on the forum will disagree with me.
1. Fewer cars.
2. An independent cafe that can compete with the chains. I try to use independents, but more often than not end up in Costa.
3. A Cinema. Looks like this one will come true. I'm really looking forward to the Depot CInema opening.

Free parking so the DFL's can park in the high street all day while they go to work again? Great idea numb nuts
Indépendant cafe that can compete with the chains? They can. They just choose not to, you numb nuts.
Vehicle free Cliffe? The shops have hardly any loading areas so how do they get deliveries you numb nuts?
