Lewes District parking review. Have your say concerning the parking in the Lewes District. We are consulting on some new parking restrictions and changes to existing restrictions in the areas of Lewes, Barcombe, Peacehaven, Newhaven, Ringmer and also Seaford. You can view the maps and take part in the our consultation hub at: Lewes Parking Review 2020-21 - formal consultation.

There are different types of bays within the controlled parking areas in Lewes. 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 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, our cashless parking mobile phone service. <-- to link

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