Civil Enforcement Officers working for Horsham District Council will be patrolling Horsham town centre on Sundays in the lead up to Christmas.
With free parking offered to drivers in Horsham town centre on Sundays, as well as Thursday evenings in the lead up to Christmas and New Year, many drivers still choose to park within the Carfax area and the surrounding area.
There will be a minimum of two Civil Enforcement Officers working in the town centre on Sundays to combat reports that have been received in previous years regarding inconsiderate parkers within that area.
There is a need to clear this congestion and direct vehicles away from this area. As this is an additional enforcement measure, warning notices will be issued until the regulations are enforced from Sunday 2 December 2012.
Cllr Roger Paterson, Horsham District Council’s Cabinet Member for the Local Economy, said:
“Horsham town centre will be making a big effort to attract residents and visitors this Christmas with special seasonal window displays and Christmas lights, supported with free parking for late night shopping and Sundays.
“It therefore seems only fair to ask everyone to park responsibly to avoid causing traffic hold ups or block much needed delivery areas.
“So please park legally so that we can all enjoy a very happy Christmas with no parking tickets to spoil the fun.”
