Height restriction barriers are sited at some of the car parks to prevent unauthorised use by high sided vehicles. These are catered for at one site only, The Buckle, Seaford.

Touring coaches can park at Spring Gardens, Lewes in the indicated bays. There is no provision for touring caravans at any of our sites and overnight sleeping in any vehicle is prohibited in all of our car parks.


Disabled Parking

Disabled Blue Badge holders may park free of charge in any of our Pay and Display car parks for a limited period. A current badge must be clearly displayed and all conditions of issue must be adhered to. Most of our sites have designated Disabled Bays but any bay can be used without charge if these are all occupied or none are designated.



Our car parks have boards to advise users of tariff charges, time restrictions, excess charges and other necessary information. All car parks have a copy of the current Parking Order on display which lists the conditions and regulations applying at our sites. Some town centre car parks have Tourist Information displays with a location map to assist with directions.
