Parking zones and hours of control

There are some temporary changes to parking and permits during the coronavirus (COVID 19) outbreak. See the: Temporary changes to parking, webpage for more information.

You can now apply for disabled parking bays and access protection markings online. For more details see: Apply for an access protection marking and also see: Apply for disabled parking bay.

Rye parking zones A and B [281.1 KB] [pdf] – Find out what parking zone you live in and where you can park.

Permit restrictions (the times when you can park with a valid permit) apply as follows:

  • Zone A – 9am to 6pm Monday to Sunday
  • Zone B – 8am to 6pm Monday to Saturday

Parking charges and permit restrictions apply on public and bank holidays. You do not need a permit or to pay for parking on 25 December, 26 December and 1 January.

Is there a waiting list?

If the demand for permits exceeds availability a waiting list will be implemented.

New developments

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 (Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs).
