YS18 XSM is another vehicle which was mentioned repeatedly in the survey of Hollingdean residents.
This van is reported to use the West edge of Hollingdean around Hollingbury Crescent and Stanmer Park Road exclusively; often leaving for the day and then returning in the evenings. Rarely moving over weekends or holidays.
Belonging to a local bathroom company, it is understood that several different people drive this van, none of whom were Hollingdean residents. It seems likely that Aqualisa simply uses Hollingdean as a place to store their local team's vehicle.
This type of 'use' of Hollingdean unnecessarily adds additional parking pressure to an already overly-congested area, reducing or removing any ability for residents to park their own vehicles.
In addition, this van has often been seen parking very inconsiderately or illegally: frequently left over a weekend parked entirely on the pavement against double-yellow lines at the junction at the bottom of Stanmer Park Road. Also frequently reported as being left in a neighbour's disabled bay, or across another neighbour's driveway.
