Changes to free parking for NHS workers in the city

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, we have supported our NHS workers with free parking to support their hard work in the community, and this will continue.

We also have to balance the needs of resident permit holders living around the Royal Sussex County Hospital.

From Tuesday 13 October, NHS passes will no longer be accepted in resident only bays in Parking Zone H.

NHS workers displaying an official NHS parking pass can continue to park for free in Pay & Display and shared parking bays in Zone H and all other parking areas.

These badges can be obtained through the hospital’s Transport Bureau. ID badges and letters are no longer accepted as proof of eligibility.

We will be increasing enforcement to ensure vehicles are parking legally in Zone H.

The Royal Sussex County Hospital is working with the council to let staff know about the change to parking arrangements and to find a longer term solution that reduces parking pressures around the hospital.

You can find details of the zone boundaries on our parking webpages.
