Roedean parking restrictions approved

TRAFFIC restrictions that would ban HGVs and coaches from entering certain parts of Roedean have been approved.

The move comes following a petition by residents who had become annoyed with large vehicles parking in residential areas, blocking the road and causing congestion.

Earlier tonight councillors on Brighton and Hove City Council's Environment, Transport and Sustainability committee approved recommendations that should help alleviate the problem.

Among the recommendations agreed tonight was the introduction of a Traffic Regulation Order banning heavy goods vehicles and public service vehicles except for access in The Cliff, Cliff Road, Cliff Approach, Roedean Crescent, Roedean Way, Roedean Vale and Roedean Heights.

It was also agreed to introduce a 4-hour tariff at the Madeira coach parking facility.

The petition, which was presented to the same committee in January said coaches had been parking in residential streets which are totally unacceptable for traffic.

The Madeira coach parking currently charges £15 to park all day and provides room for 42 coaches.

If no objections are received about the introduction of the TRO then the enforcement could be in place by June.

When will this bunch of amateurs realise that a lot of Brighton and Hoves income comes from tourism, to clamp down on coach parking will simply mean the coach companies stop running trips to the city and go elsewhere. The Green council has brought the city to its knees, and now seems to be desperately wipe it off the map by the time they go in 2015

The coaches should use the spaces provided & not residential streets. So this is good news for residents. It won't stop coaches coming to Brighton the drivers will have to use the money they probably get for parking charges to park the coach.

Hmm wonder if this isn't because the average house price in that area is £1.6 million?
Lets push the coaches into the poorer parts of Brighton?

I'm not sure how many coaches you can get in the grandly called 'Madeira coach parking facility', which is fact just a spare bit of road overlooking Black Rock. 4hrs doesn't seem long for people to have a stroll on the pier, get some fish and chips, a ride on Volks railway and a game of crazy golf. Definitely not long enough to include a go on the isore. One must assume kittykat and his pals just don’t like tourists. It’s such a shame Terry Garoghan has stopped his Brighton the Musical show, he would have no end of material with the greens in power
