It is not a car free zone. The road is for access to Bear yard etc, deliveries and picking up goods. However it is not a through road.

There aren't too many deliveries needed at 9.00pm are there? So why all the traffic?

To get from the Mag's car park to Tesco roundabout:
A) Cliffe High Street - 1 minor junction. 600m
B) One way system - Mini roundabout, traffic lights, junction. 1100m
I don't think the 'self regulation' policy will work. I am with the OP. A waste of money.

I take it '1/2 a mil' you have conducted a traffic survey.
NNP what is 'OP'?

If it's not a through road, Mog, are you supposed to turn round and go back the way you came if you've used your car for picking up stuff (which I believe is still allowed)?

ACT, don't be daft. If you are not picking up or delivering or accessing bear yard etc you are not supposed to use it. Obviously you would not go the wrong up a one way street.
1/2 a mill it says no motor vehicles by Morris road.

This is how the enforcement will work:
Parking attendant:
"Why did you just drive down Cliffe High Street?"
Motorist:
"I was picking something up from " (Argos/Bills/Percy's/sport shop/name your shop) "and I couldn't work find anywhere to stop."
Parking attendant (thinking - as best (s)he can):
"Hmm... This is trickier than I thought... I know, I'll go back to chasing more customers away from the Town Centre so I can kill off any local business stupid enough to mess with the mighty Tescos. Oh that Spongebob really does it for me. I hope someday we may we wed!"

Interesting point that actually - it's not a through road, hence no road markings, hence no double/single/permit/zonal restrictions on parking, hence -

LEWES' NEW FREE CAR PARK IS CLIFFE HIGH STREET!!!! BRILLIANT!!!!!

NPP, why are you picking on the wardens? They're just follwing the rules of the council, moan at the council not them!!

Sorry Keeley, but I have never been one for the "we are just following rules" excuse for doing something unacceptable. Loan shark employees and clampers are in the same camp.

No Pot Pourri you WILL get a ticket if you park in cliffe high st wardens are not daft heard all the excuses before why not try it if you are so sure?

Hello CB. If you read the thread you will see that it is not about parking in Cliffe High Street but treating it as a through road. I am not sure if PAs / CEOs (laughable acronyms!) have enforcement powers for this in any case, but for you it may be best to read the thread before you post.

Giving tickets to illegally parked cars is unacceptable? They ARE just following the rules by ESCC who are their contractors, why is that an excuse? Complain to the council if you've got a problem with it like everyone else does, don't pick on people who are just trying to earn a living.

the point still remains, the cobbles are hard to walk on, the pavements are full of stalls, the traffic is still free to use it, people still park for hours at a time, still noroad markings at morris road end, at the pet shop a sign says no motor vehicles, but should really be a no entry sign, the money must have run out, another highways cock up like the tunnel as from 21st jan closed for 6 months !

What fun & games that will be.

Fantastic work they have done on the tunnel so far though. All credit to them. Given the time taken it is quite an achievement to attach so little metal cladding so badly. Real craftsmanship. I feel proud to be British.
