Camber Sands Central Car Park Parking Charges

The council said the increase in parking fees was necessary to cover the rising costs of managing the car park, including security costs following a rise in anti-social behavior at the location during busy periods. The council also said the increase would help to reduce congestion at the beach.

The decision to increase the parking fees has been met with criticism from some local businesses, who say it will discourage visitors and damage the local economy. However, the council has defended the decision, saying it is necessary to ensure the sustainability of Camber Sands as a tourist destination.
