Car parking at Rye Station
Rye has a station car park and, adjoining it, the Cattlemarket car park. On Thursdays when the Cattlemarket car park is taken over by a general market, there is no car parking permitted and the station car park is full from very early in the morning, to a large extent by people not using the train service.
Southern has sub-let the operation of the car park and therefore, to a certain extent, may well have no ability to influence the use of it. However, we would like to join in a discussion with Rye Town Council, Southern and other interested bodies to plan for the future when the station may become even more busy than it is now.
