On Friday 13th December, the Polegate Community Car Park was ‘officially’ re-opened by Norman Baker, Local MP for Lewes, and Gary Wayne from Creative Car Park, both whom have been instrumental in making much-needed improvements to the site in order to greatly benefit the local community.
Several concerns had been expressed over the state of repair at the car park in Polegate which, combined with its 2.5-hour maximum stay ruling, resulted in the site being underutilised, as motorists opted to park at other locations.
Creative Car Park has now implemented new operating procedures to ensure the car park offers greater use for the local community, with longer parking hours for shoppers and commuters, including the option to buy hourly, daily, weekly or monthly parking. The new environmentally friendly completely cashless system is also thought to be a safer way to park, as motorists do not display a ticket indicating the length of time they intend to be away from their vehicle.
Creative Car Park also arranged the resurfacing and remarking of the site to offer greater protection to motorists’ vehicles and better safety for pedestrians. Mr Gary Wayne from Creative Car Park commented “The changes implemented have been designed to encourage motorists back to this car park, which in the past was regularly half empty putting a strain on other local parking facilities. Since the changes, use of the car park has substantially increased and we will continue to monitor this to ensure we continue to provide a valuable service.”
MP Norman Baker added “I am very pleased to see the significant improvements to this important car park in Polegate. What was frankly a badly potholed and rutted car park has been turned into something much tidier and more professional. I was pleased to be able to formally reopen this.”
