THE parking signs on Beatty Road car park have now been ‘covered.’

There are also no charges at present – so there’s no excuse not to be using the local shops again. They badly need our support after a torrid time.

Eastbourne Conservatives Sovereign Branch have reported: “There is a moratorium on parking charges for the next fortnight and today it has been noticed the parking signs have been temporarily covered.”

Progress at last we hope………….

Now we have the updated statement from Tony Mullane of Mullane Holdings, the car park owner.

It is now fair to say it is unlikely to be paid parking again and is unmanageable as a permit holders only car park.

“We do not have plans to reintroduce these parking services in the near or long term as things stand”
