Cars Parked on Double Yellows in Hollingdean



Cars are frequently illegally parked along double yellow lines in Hollingdean.


Illegal parking is causing obstruction to other road users, including access for ambulances [see minutes of last North Residents Only meeting, 28th June 2022, Item 14].

The Council’s response to this item was that enforcement officers would be asked to step up enforcement in the area and increase visits.

Residents have not seen evidence of enforcement or increase of visits to Hollingdean. The problem has not been resolved.

Action requested by residents:

It was agreed to raise the following questions at Area Panel:

·         Why have enforcement officers not yet been sent to Hollingdean?

·         Why have the number of visits by enforcement officers not increased?

·         When will this start happening

Davey Drive – 18 visits, 10 PCNs
