Norman Baker is calling on Lewes District Council to provide free car parking in Newhaven to support local businesses. A petition has been launched by Norman to enable others to show their support for the initiative which would enable people to have free short stay parking in Newhaven town centre for up to 2 hours to encourage people to pop into the town centre and use facilities and services there.

Norman explains: “Newhaven businesses need the support from Lewes District Council to assist in bringing people back to the town centre of Newhaven.

“Parking is a factor that puts people off from popping into the centre to make use of facilities there, instead of driving out of the town to areas with free parking.

“I am disappointed the Tory controlled district council have not taken this chance to support small businesses.

“Lewes District Council have the opportunity to throw the town a life line and support local businesses to have the opportunity to thrive once more in the town.”

The call for free parking is also being supported by Newhaven Chamber of Commerce.
