LETTER: Extension, not clampdown

Your Web correspondent, Stevee4 either does not live in Polegate or has not read the parking proposal document correctly.

There is no clampdown as such, merely the extension of some double yellow lines at junctions to improve visibility. Double yellows are also to be painted in some bus lay-bys to deter those who think these spaces are for shoppers. An additional two disabled parking bays are to be created outside the High Street doctor’s surgery.

The parking problems here are caused by commuters who refuse to use the (half empty) station car-park and those who blatantly ignore the two hour restrictions in the High Street and adjoining roads.
