The new 135-bay car park in Shoreham is now open.

Adur District Council took the decision to make a council staff car park in Ham Road available to the public from today.

A council spokesperson said: “Shoreham is one of the smallest but most popular towns on the coast, as featured in Evening Standard Magazine on Friday the 8th of July.

“It provides a popular shopping and dining destination for residents and visitors alike but as urgently result requires more parking spaces as its popularity grows.”

The Ham Road car park will operate as pay and display on an hourly and daily basis, with further opportunity to purchase season tickets. Prices start from 25p.

Councillor Neil Parkin, Leader of Adur District Council, added: “Shoreham is a very popular town, with a wide range of bespoke and independent shops, a vibrant arts scene and popular weekly markets. It also enjoys many charming but narrow streets and parking has become an issue.

“The new Ham Road car park will further improve on road parking and offer residents and visitors alike a more pleasant experience when visiting the town.”

The charges for the Ham Road car park are 25p for 30 minutes; 50p for one hour; £1 for two hours; £1.50 for three hours; £2 for four hours and £3 for all-day parking.

Monthly season tickets cost £35.
