Transparency and annual reports

Civil Parking Enforcement (CPE) was introduced in Hastings Borough in 1999, across the whole of Lewes District on 20 September 2004, throughout the Borough of Eastbourne on 13 October 2008 and introduced in Rother District on 29 September 2020. This transferred responsibility for parking enforcement from the police to the County Council. Below you will find our annual parking reports and transparency figures for 2022/23.

Local Authorities Code 2015

Under the Local Government Transparency Code 2015, at the end of April each year we have a statutory requirement to publish information about the number of on and off street parking spaces we control, and the financial information.

We have on street controls in the districts of Lewes and Rother and the boroughs of Eastbourne and Hastings. In Lewes we also manage County Hall car park.

The bays are not individually marked out on street so the number of spaces is estimated.

On Street Number of spaces
Eastbourne 2,966
Lewes 2,791
Hastings 3,801
Rother 3,306
Off Street Number of spaces
County Hall (Lewes) 394
