Guidance marks will be installed on street and the new road markings may vary slightly from these. this is common practice. 

We’re required to put up warning notices 48 hours before work begins. Cones and signs will be placed on street from Friday 5th January 2018.

Parking permit application forms will be sent to residents 6 weeks before the scheme go live date in March 2018.

Please note lining work is subject to weather conditions, rain or other adverse conditions may cause a delay.

Moving vehicles

Please move vehicles, where possible, to nearby streets before work starts.

We will only relocate vehicles as a last resort. If a vehicle must be moved, it will be towed to an adjacent road, or to the top/bottom of the road – as close as possible to the original location. We will not fine or charge vehicle owners if this happens. We will also notify the police if we move a vehicle, in case it is reported as stolen when the driver returns.

If your vehicle is moved and you are unsure where it is, please call: 0345 603 5469.

The new road markings are needed as part of the agreed proposal for parking restrictions in the West Hove area

Why we're proposing a parking scheme for West Hove area

We're responding to an increasing number of comments and complaints about the high number of vehicles parked all day in the West Hove area. This is making it difficult for local residents to park.

Our proposals also aim to address double parking, parking on pavements and double yellow lines. We want to improve

  • safety for pedestrians
  • traffic flow
  • access for emergency vehicles
