The point where people pay their parking fines in Lewes is on the move.

Lewes Town Councillor Stephen Catlin has complained it’s happening without public consultation – and the new site will be less easily accessible.

He said the Parking Shop’s current location in the town cventre was convenient for all but the proposed new venue, Causeway House in Malling Way, has only four parking spaces and is far from easy to find.

Cllr Catlin said the parking scheme already has many critics, and to move the location from one which is easy to find seems to add insult to injury. Nobody’s opinion seems to have been sought, he said.

East Sussex County Council told him on Tuesday that the final date had not been confirmed but was likely to be in early May. When the plans had been finalised, the move would be advertised.
