West Sussex revises parking guidance to help emergency services and key workers

Coronavirus: County council agrees new parking dispensation approach with districts and boroughs

West Sussex County Council is working with borough and district councils to revise parking restrictions in a bid to help residents during the coronavirus outbreak.

For residents who need to park on-street during self-isolation, a dispensation notice is now available for £10 per vehicle and is valid for 12 weeks. It is valid in any on-street bay, including pay & display bays and limited waiting bays, but not on yellow lines, taxi ranks, loading bays or disabled bays.

The dispensation notice covers controlled parking zones (CPZs) and non-CPZ areas but not off-street car parks.

To get a dispensation notice, residents need to contact their local district or borough council parking service.

The councils are:

  • Arun District Council
  • Chichester District Council
  • Crawley Borough Council
  • Horsham District Council
  • Mid Sussex District Council
  • Worthing and Adur Councils

The same on-street dispensation notice will be available to NHS staff, on production of ID, but at no cost. This notice will also be valid for 12 weeks.
On-street parking enforcement will continue but with a focus on safety and ensuring the free movement of traffic, especially for the emergency services, carers and deliveries.

People are beong advised not to park on yellow lines, loading bays and clearways.

The county council said civil parking enforcement officers (CEOs) will key highway safety role. The CEOs will enforce yellow lines and loading bays so that particular vehicles can still travel freely on the network and not have to contend with dangerously parked vehicles.

The situation will be kept under review and further operational changes may be necessary.
