Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Lead Member will be asked to give permission to the Ashdown Forest to charge for parking in the Millbrook Car Park. The reason this decision is needed is due to the fact the land is ESCC owned.


18.1     The Lead Member considered a report by the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport.




18.2     The Lead Member RESOLVED to: agree the introduction of parking charges on East Sussex County Council land at Millbrook Hill, Ashdown Forest.




18.3     The Board of Conservators explored the potential for introducing parking charges and have deemed that these charges are necessary for the long-term preservation, use and enjoyment of the Ashdown Forest as an amenity space for the public.


18.4     The introduction of parking charges at the Millbrook Car Parks will provide a consistent approach to managing parking across the Ashdown Forest. The ESCC share of revenue generated by the tariffs will contribute towards to maintenance of the Millbrook car parks.
