Seaford Town Council has liaised with Lewes District Council to agree free Saturday parking in specific car parks during December to support the launch of the ‘Shop Independent in Seaford’ scheme

1st December 2021 – Seaford Town Council is proud to support ‘Shop Independent in Seaford’ this December. Shopping locally supports local businesses as they rebuild following the pandemic, as well as reducing your carbon footprints. You are also more likely to find unique, locally made items, and pick up great deals. It’s a win-win for shoppers and businesses alike!

So, join the Town Council in celebrating an independent Christmas this year and take part in the Shop Independent in Seaford scheme. There are some fantastic prizes on offer, and you only need to make five purchases from participating shops.

The Town Council would always encourage travel to the town centre by foot, cycle or public transport but does understand that this is not a possibility for everyone. With this in mind and to help facilitate all shoppers being able to visit the town centre, the Town Council has successfully managed to secure free parking for another year running at Lewes District Council-owned car parks in Seaford on Saturday 4th and 11th December 2021. The car parks included are Saxon Lane, Sutton Road and West Street.

Please do get involved with the Shop Independent Scheme and let’s support those that keep the town centre thriving!
Please note, free parking only applies to the three car parks mentioned (Saxon Lane, Sutton Road and West Street), all other parking restrictions remain unchanged.

The Mayor of Seaford, Councillor Rodney Reed, has been a strong advocate of supporting local businesses throughout his time as Mayor: ‘Shopping locally has never been more important than now, as our independent local traders strive to recover from the pandemic. They do so while facing uncertainty as to what exactly winter may bring. We should all support our local and particularly our independent shops. This helps ensure a thriving town centre for years to come. It also helps Seaford play our part in tackling climate change and reducing our carbon footprint individually and as a community. There are many wonderful offerings in our Seaford shops, so please do embrace this opportunity!’
