Parking Petition


To oppose the extent of the current proposals for the increase in charges in East Grinstead plus the extension of parking charges to evenings and Sundays/Bank Holidays, and to delay any changes until genuine consultation has taken place with the people and businesses of East Grinstead.

To all business owners and members of the East Grinstead and surrounding area community, be united with us in opposition to the proposed changes including the unfair application of increases of 30% in the town versus 20% in Haywards Heath and 10% in Burgess Hill. We also oppose the introduction of evening/Sunday charges that will affect the evening/night-time economy (and Sunday activity), already struggling following the pandemic and then the cost-of-living crisis.

MSDC require hard copies of completed forms so unfortunately there is no online facility for signing.

Completed forms can be handed in to Martell’s store in London Road, or sent by post to Martells Ltd, Unit 3-6, Charlwoods Road, East Grinstead RH19 2HG, to be received by midday Monday 25 March. Alternatively contact to arrange collection.

It would also be helpful if you get your friends, colleagues and family to sign the petition too.
