Is there a waiting list?

A permit may not be issued if the address is part of a large development with off street parking.
In some circumstances parking permits will not be issued to residents of specific properties. These are generally dwellings with no or limited off street parking where ESCC (East Sussex County Council) has advised the planning authorities that should planning permission be granted for those dwellings no or restricted permits will be issued by ESCC. The Traffic Regulation Order may include a clause to this effect. It is necessary to have such a clause to better manage increasing on street parking demand that would otherwise result from development that does not provide for adequate parking facilities.
What if my vehicle is not registered in the UK?
Motorists of any non UK registered vehicles will only be issued with a permit for a maximum of six months. Foreign vehicles that remain in the UK for longer than six months are required to register with the DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency) or obtain a customs exemption certificate from HMRC (His Majesty's Revenue and Customs).
