The problem with Lewes is they have made it impossible to park within walking distance of the town without having to buy a parking ticket. This includes all kerbside parking. So you pay your road tax to put your car on the road and then have to pay again to leave it unattended. It's no wonder people are disgruntled.

In Taunton, Somerset county council are putting in more parking in the town, for the income from the charges. It's one of the few ways that local authorities can raise money to compensate for central gov grant cuts.
They have also just completed a squillion pound Park and Ride at J25 to keep cars out of the town

Lewes is very big on fireworks. There are at least four societies that I can think of, with some right pyrotechnical nutters in each.

I have a local butcher and greengrocer within walking distance who both sell quality at the right price. Asda deliver everything else without having to get up out of my chair and endure mothers dragging screaming brats round with them. No parking problems, no parking charges and no petrol used

Plus 1..

Police here are on a quota system, they have changed the layout of the parking spaces so they can book disabled drivers who park in loading spaces and employ litter wardens to watch if smokers drop cigarettes on the ground to stamp them out..75 fine and the wardens have to get 4 a day or they dont get paid..Last night a gang of local kids beat up a policeman in the town centre..we have a load of cameras watching the town for traffic offences and in spite of last night they are still directed on the road.

John.
