On street parking in Eastbourne

There are different types of bays within the controlled parking areas in Eastbourne. Signs next to the bays tell you which type they are and any time restrictions.

By displaying a valid pay & display ticket, or paying for parking using RingGo, our cashless parking mobile phone service, you can park in:

  • pay & display bays
  • shared use bays (permit holders and pay & display parking).

Most pay and display machines accept both card and coin payment, or you can pay using RingGo. 

Other types of bays such as permit holders only, disabled bays and taxi bays operate at all times unless the sign states otherwise.
