Expensive night at the theatre!

HOW many people have received a parking penalty ticket in Wilmington Square?

I picked one up on Thursday, February 24, when going to the theatre.

I drove down the Square, saw the parking meters and a space: parked and paid the £3 and was astounded to find the penalty ticket when I returned.

Apparently one side of the road is for permit holders only and the other side for anyone.

Having seen the parking meters I did not look at any other notices.

A lady from one of the flats called out to me that it was happening all the time so obviously the notices are not clear enough.

Surely a notice should be put on the parking meter itself.

I can only assume East Sussex County Council is trying to get some extra revenue.
