ROAD VERGES CAR SALES AND ADVERTISING: Ever wondered what can be done about cars for sale in the Boot Fair Layby and the side of Pevensey Roundabout not to mention the mobile Advertising Hoardings on Eastbourne Road? The short answer is nothing. The subject was raised in connection to cars parked for sale by the side of the roundabout by the village gateway at last weeks Parish Council Meeting. As the law stands under the Clean Neighbourhood Act there have to be two or more vehicles offered for sale within 500 yards with the same phone number for action to be taken. However as the offending Layby is actually the old entrance to Sluice Lane which was never blocked off the Council have written to East Sussex asking for kerbs to be reinstated cutting it off. Seems to be putting an advert on your property will incur the full wrath of officialdom but parking a lorry with a hoarding on the grass verge is ok?
PAVEMENT CYCLISTS: PCSO Simon French came to the Parish Council meeting having looked into this and been out on Wallsend Road stopping some offending cyclists and warning them they should not be cycling on the pavement. Hopefully this will help with the problem. I do not think anyone minds Children cycling to the BMX Track but do object to Adults hurtling at top speed down the pavement or even worse trying to avoid red traffic lights at either end of Wallsend Road.
INCREDIBLE EDIBLE: will be meeting at Oak and Castle at 11 am Sunday 13 for their next planting session where they will be planting some troughs in the square and stripping turf from the grass verge to put in some more perennial plants. They ask for anyone to come along and help. Meanwhile the fruit trees planted in the meadow under the Castle actually have some fruit on them! Not much but it’s a start !
