From London Road Area Local Action Team – Could this affect our area?
“Since it first started between Ditchling Rise and Viaduct Road, Zone J has increased in area hugely and now people from far away can park their cars in local streets in order to visit the cinema, or pub, or leave their car for long periods while they fly away on holiday. This prevents locals from parking in their own streets overnight. This was not the original deal.
There is a petition to complain about this – if you agree please sign here before noon on 26th June 2018 when the complaint with be brought to the Council Environment Committee.
The petition says:
We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to make it so that residents in Zone J south of the railway line are once again able to park our cars near our homes at night. e.g. by dividing the zone at the boundary of the railway line.
We are concerned about the Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) zone J south of the railway line (i.e. between Viaduct Road and Ditchling Rise). The original advantage of the CPZ was that the residents could park during the day, and overnight within reasonable walking distance of their homes. When the CPZ was introduced there was a massive benefit.
Zone J is now huge. Since the extension of zone J north of the railway line we have found that if we go out in the car, particularly in the evening, we again find ourselves unable to park within the area when we return. We believe that movement within zone J is a significant factor in this.
When we voted for this CPZ we thought it was just for us residents, we were never told that other people from other neighbourhoods were also going to be able to park here in future, and we have never been consulted on this matter.
Please can the Council take steps either to divide zone up into smaller areas along the railway line, or use some other method to bring back the benefit that we voted for.

Dear Chief Inspector Chris Veale,
I am writing to you on behalf of the London Road Area Local Action team – mandated by the recent LAT meeting 12/12/17 . They wish me to explain why they feel concerned and dismayed at the current policing situation and why the response upon which we are receiving feedback is felt to be inadequate.
I would like to point out that we enjoy good working relations with [our local Inspector], but feel that his good efforts may be hampered by lack of resources and policy imposed on him from higher up.
At a recent LAT chairs’ Forum meeting the police representative appeared to express the view to the effect that crime and disorder, especially drug-related crime is no worse than it has ever been. This was a very loyal and morale-maintaining comment for him to make.
But when reported back to our LAT it…
