This vehicle is known to belong in a neighbouring controlled parking zone (Zone G) - the owner frequently keeps it parked outside of their home on Hollingbury Road when parking restrictions are not in effect there.
It does not have a valid permit for the area where the owner resides.
As a result, the car is found parked as close to the top of Hollingbury Crescent (outside of their parking zone) as the driver is able to achieve daily.
The vehicle often does not move at all for several days at a time, blocking what little convenient parking is available for Hollingdean residents.
In February 2024, we received four separate reports about this car on the same evening. The owner had been seen attempting to push their car into a very small gap at the top of Hollingbury Crescent. They did this by making contact with the already-parked cars with their bumpers, pushing those parked cars to make room, and repeatedly crashing into the parked cars both ahead and behind him multiple times. When challenged by a resident, the (male) driver denied it and walked away. This was captured on video and has been handed to the insurers of both vehicles involved.
Residents have reported this driver for hitting parked cars in this manner several times before, although February is the first time that footage has been captured. EX10 VRU (not thought to be related) is also notorious for hitting and pushing parked cars to make room in this same way.
Unfortunately, this vehicle (and owner) is a very solid example of Hollingdean residents' struggles: non-resident drivers use their streets for 'free' parking, meaning that residents struggle to park near their homes. When those residents do manage to park near their homes, those same non-residents then damage their vehicles and walk away.
