Hollingdean Parking

Grey Vauxhall Insignia

  • This vehicle receives the unenviable reward of being one of the most-mentioned vehicles by Hollingdean residents.

  • It is understood that DF60 DWZ belongs to a resident of a neighbouring controlled parking zone.

  • Unusual for the area: the owners have both a garage and driveway.

  • Nevertheless, this vehicle is extremely frequently found parked outside of the owner's zone, instead taking up what little space is available to Hollingdean residents.

  • This is a large estate vehicle which takes up a significant amount of road space and is often reported to be left parked poorly, partially (ironically) blocking local resident driveways or overhanging double-yellow lines.

  • In late November 2023, a resident reported this vehicle parked in Hollingdean for the weekend once again (on Hollingbury Crescent). This time, however, it was parked so poorly that at least a full third (or more) of its width stuck out into the road. This meant that vehicles travelling up Hollingbury Crescent - towards the blind summit at the junction with Hollingbury Road - were forced over the central line and into the oncoming traffic in order to pass, causing several near-misses and horn honking. DF60 DWZ did not move from this position for several days.

  • It is unclear why the owner would prefer to consistently store their vehicle in this fashion rather than use their garage, or driveway. They could also obtain a permit for their vehicle, or visitor permits for when they feel they need to use their driveway and garage for other vehicles (which appears to be several times each week).
