New parking restrictions are due to come into force at locations around Uckfield.

East Sussex County Council contractors will be in the town on Monday (November 30) and Tuesday (December 1) painting double yellow lines at 14 locations.

The new restrictions, which will prohibit waiting at any time, are being introduced following requests over safety concerns caused by cars parking in potentially unsafe locations.

The measures are being put in place ahead of the second stage of the Uckfield Town Centre Improvement Scheme.
