Thank you for taking the time to tell us your views. They are important to us.

Opportunity to be heard: Tell us your view on the current layout of yellow lines. The Parish Council is working hard to improve safety relating to traffic and transport across the parish.

Three initiatives are currently in progress: • Introduction of 20mph and associated safety measures • Negotiations with Rother District Council re the transfer of ownership of the main car park in Burwash Village • Review of parking restrictions and yellow lines.

The views of local residents are now needed for the post implementation review of the Traffic Regulation Order which introduced the current yellow line layout in Burwash Village.

“A Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) is a legal order made by a Local Authority which manages the behaviour of all road users. Once a TRO and its associated scheme are in place it is tempting to forget about it and move onto the next scheme. However, post-implementation reviews are not only best practice but are often set out as part of the scheme. There are many ways of evaluating the success of a scheme but postimplementation feedback from consultees, objectors and elected members is a good place to start. Public consultation There is an opportunity if required to review the proposed design in the light of the feedback received. Minor adjustments at this point can avoid formal objections to the Notice of Proposals, or even a public inquiry.” The British Parking Association [BPA] Traffic Regulation Orders Guide.

The Parish Council is keen to ensure their recommendations to this review reflect the views of local residents. This is your opportunity to tell us what you think about current yellow line parking restrictions.

We welcome your feedback by 30th June. We will consider your views at the full council meeting on 14th July and make recommendations to the Transport Authority soon after.
