Proposed parking restrictions near Bishopstone Railway Station are causing concerns amongst residents.

Lewes MP Norman Baker met with residents on Friday July 25 where they said it could impact on Linda’s Stores and passengers using the station.

But East Sussex County Council said the double yellow lines for roads in the area were drawn up in response to problens locals were having with access to their homes.

East Sussex County Council has written to residents proposing no waiting at any time restriction to Station Road, Hawth Hill and Hawth Park Road.

But people living in Hawth Park Road have contacted Mr Baker with fears the parking restriction would cause a problem for residents.

One local resident said: “If we want to keep the convenience of a local station and shop for residents we need to be welcoming to the people who want to come to the area to use the services.

“We are also concerned that some of our neighbours have visits from carers who will now find it difficult to park and how this may affect their care.”

An East Sussex County Council spokesman said: “Proposals for double yellow lines in this area were drawn up in response to concerns raised by residents over access.

“We have consulted with residents in these roads and we are now entering the period where formal responses can be made by any member of the public to the proposals – this lasts until August 8.

“We appreciate the concerns of commuters and local businesses, and would encourage people to use the free car park available a short walk away in Marine Parade.”
