During the Hollingdean parking survey, LR07 CZU - with its very distinctive graffiti paintwork - was mentioned frequently.
Residents recognise that it is often seen parked on a driveway in Parking Zone G, so it is safe to assume that a Hollingdean resident does not own it.
However, it is also regularly left parked awkwardly within Hollingdean for extended periods of time. As it is such a large vehicle, and the owner seems determined to park as close as they can to their own home on Hollingbury Road, they often leave it in unsuitable areas.
This includes being left overhanging neighbour's driveways, disabled spaces, and, on more than one occasion, fully blocking traffic down Adams Close by parking opposite other parked cars.
Despite the flamboyant paintwork, the van is in a very poor state of repair; the roof, in particular, is badly accident-damaged and rusting.
It was also noted that it had neither a valid MOT, nor tax, whilst still being kept on the public street.
It is unclear why the owner does not simply purchase a resident permit for their area rather than dumping it in Hollingdean.
