Motorhome Parking in (East) Sussex.
The information is presented by local authority area.
East Sussex County Council; Parking Page. Statement 19 November 2013: "We run parking schemes in Lewes district, Eastbourne borough and Hastings borough and in these areas on street parking of motor homes is not permitted. In the Lewes district area we manage the enforcement of car parks on behalf of the district council. Although overnight parking is permitted in their car parks, sleeping in the vehicle is not. We would always recommend that you check the signs and tariff boards for each car park. Our website has the most commonly requested information about parking. For more information readers are directed to our Parking Shops or Parking Information Centre. We have no plans to change this in the near future."
Brighton & Hove City Council; Parking Page; Statement 16 December 2013: "Details of on street parking charges can be found on the parking page. These can be paid by on street by pay and display or by registering with our mobile parking payment contractor Pay by Phone. As with any vehicle, any motor home must be able to fit within the markings of the bay where it is parked. Details about our car parks together with any height restrictions are similarly available on our website". If there is any doubt about being able to fit into a parking space the best advice is to send a specific enquiry to the council. Park & Ride Page. There is a height barrier of 2.0 metres at the Park & Ride car park.
Brighton Race Course. An enquiry regarding motorhome parking was sent on 28 January 2014.
Eastbourne Borough Council; Parking Page. Motorhome Parking Page.
Hastings Borough Council; Parking Page.
Lewes District Council; Parking Page. See note under Restrictions - High sided vehicles are catered for at one site only, The Buckle, Seaford.
Newhaven Fort, Fort Road, Newhaven, East Sussex, BN9 9DS. There used to be a How To Find Us Page which included high vehicle parking information but that has now been removed. Howwver, as coaches can still park there is n reason to think restrictions have been imposed.
Plumpton Race Course, Plumpton, East Sussex, BN7 3AL. Statement 29 January 2014: "We do not have plans to publish parking arrangements for motorhomes. However, parking is free throughout the racecourse. We have unmarked hard standing in our rear car park, where cars and coaches park. We also have plenty of free parking in the centre of the course which is unmarked - basically people can park wherever they wish and it doesn't matter what the size of their vehicle is. However, we would probably encourage very high vehicles to park away from the running rails so as not to block views of the racing.".
Seven Sisters Country Park, Exceat, Seaford, East Sussex, BN25 4AD. Parking Page includes large vehicle parking information.
Rother District Council; Parking Page. When asked, the council did not comment on any plans (or not) to publish information specific to motor homes but said that it is best to contact them for advice as facilities are different for each town and village within the district. Within Rother there are currently no on-street parking restrictions or charges, therefore all on street parking is available for motorhome use. (Stated 6 September 2013). However, see also This Page created in March 2014.
Wealden District Council; Parking Page. The council currently has no plans to publish motorhome parking information on its website (Stated 27 September 2013). Best advice to anyone needing to park is to make a specific enquiry of the council before doing so.
Bluebell Railway, Sheffield Park Station, East Sussex, TN22 3QL. Statement 5 February 2014: "Motorhomes will fit in the top car park at Sheffield Park Station (not the bottom car park or the overflow one as they have height barriers). There are no problems at Horsted Keynes - there is some hard standing and a large grassed area. There is no parking at either Kingscote or East Grinstead Stations. I will see if we can get the website updated to reflect all of this.".
