Parking charges move in East Brighton Park

The Argus: Parking charges move in East Brighton Park Parking charges move in East Brighton Park

Parking charges are being considered for East Brighton Park.

The move follows concerns about parked vehicles causing congestion and access problems at the park’s entrance, particularly for ambulances picking up patients from the air ambulance helicopter.

A public consultation on the proposal has begun and will run until March 19, with residents being asked to give their views on possible plans for charges of up to £3 for up to six hours between 9am and 4pm Monday to Friday and 2pm to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Notices are currently being distributed to residents living in Wilson Avenue and displays will be placed in the park’s cafe and at Asda in Brighton Marina.

The decision to go ahead with the consultation was made by the city council’s environment, transport and sustainability committee.

The council money from the scheme will be used to cover the cost of the new enforcement, with any extra funds being ringfenced for future park improvements.

Councillor Pete West, chairman of the committee, said: “We have had a lot of complaints about problems being caused by long stay parking in the park and we are particularly concerned about the risk of delays for ambulances needing to transfer seriously ill patients from the air ambulance.

“There are also access problems for visitors going to the caravan site, to the extent we are told it is deterring some people from returning to the site and going outside Brighton and Hove for their next break.

“We want to tackle these problems and free up parking spaces for park users and we hope everyone interested will give us their view on the proposed parking scheme.”

He added the council had tried to keep the charges as low as possible, with a starting rate of 50p for up to one hour.

Rich Airey, from South East Coast Ambulance Service, said: “It is extremely important our crews have easy access to the park and we need people to abide by parking restrictions in places where they are enforced.

“We urge people to think about parking and have it in the backs of their minds.

“We say if a fire truck can get past then all emergency services can, so just have that in the back of your mind.

Remember that’s how much room to leave for us.”

From beer to uncertainty says...

I recall a lady who had broken her lower-leg in a road-traffic accident., in pain but otherwise ok - less than a mile from the hospital - she was driven by ambulance to a helicopter pick-up point a mile in the opposite direction, then transferred and airlifted to the same hospital - which didn't have a safe landing zone at the time, so she was then wheeled through the streets on a trolley from a swimming pool car park a block away to the hospital. I think the helicopter service was privately funded and there was some concerns that it wasn't being used enough.

So the Green agenda of extorting money from people already suffering from the cost of living crisis, spreads their nasty little wings further?
The excuses they use for their extortion is insulting!
The Greens want to spread parking permits to every house in every street throughout Brighton & Hove!
Once this is achieved, once people have been fooled by this Green bull, the charges to park outside your own home, will go up yearly, even IF (when) these Green tyrants are kicked out of office, as a new administration will see this as an easy cash cow!
So much for freedom of choice!
If the Greens get their way, these parking permits will go up until people can't even afford to park their cars outside their own homes let alone drive in (or out of) of Brighton!
The ultimate Green plan!
The UK's first car free city!
I am sure fit cycling Greens will love this idea in a city full of hills!
What about the ones who aren't able to ride a bike?
What about the pensioners and disabled?
Use taxis and public transport?
Assuming that these public vehicles go near their addresses, what good are they?
And as these public transport will then have a complete monopoly (thanks to the Greens), they will be able to charge what they like!
Ever known anything to come down in price?
Then you will be forced to walk!
Those that can't, will be trapped in their homes!
Welcome to the Green utopia!

Once again a green "solution" which doesn't solve the stated problem. Once again anti-car but also anti families visiting the park and any other groups which find it difficult to follow the green model of cycling and using buses. I have seen a family with young children leave Preston Park at the time the parking enforcement starts at weekends - now looking to do more of this?

If the problem is parking around the entrance then double yellow lines or similar markings on this section will resolve this. A vehicle still causes a blockage if it is paying to park or whether it is parking for free

If the problem is long term parking then introduce fines for people staying over 24 hours. No need to charge for people visiting the park for a few hours - unless the aim is for less people to visit the park!

Double yellow lines around the entrance and where the ambulances etc need access which is not every day.Problem sorted . Unfortunately the councils solution to everything, it seems, is to make life more difficult for everyone while costing us all more money.Also I thought all parking revenues were meant to be spent on roads and not elsewhere or was the park improvement proposed spend the 'carrot' part when the fines are the stick?

Much as I disagree with the Green Party on virtually every aspect of their running the Council I have to agree that the parking in East Brighton Park is ridiculous, there are caravans in the road leading to the cafe that have been there for months. perhaps if there was a 3 hour parking limit instead, which would allow walkers, dog walkers and those attending football matches to park there but would stop the long term 'residents'. p.s. if the caravans are kicked out I imagine they will park opposite the race course on Freshfield Road along with the others that have been there for months.

I was surprised at this too but it looks like there are different accounting rules for off-street parking and this re-investment model has already been used at Preston Park.

And what a disaster that scheme has turned out to be (at Preston Park). As has been previously mentioned above this is an anti families policy. I expect nothing less from these nasty, nasty Greens. They're anti families, they're anti sport and leisure. They're just nasty. Really nasty.

Yes you would be surprised and as a non resident of Brighton we wouldn't expect you to know about it, nor would we expect non residents to come on here and lie about situations

However it seems the greens are happy to and that's one of the reasons why the vast majority of Brighton residents detest them
