As fast as Sheffield City Council has been chopping down trees it seems Rother District Council has been erecting a forest of metal posts in Camber Sands western car park.
Dozens of 10ft-high metal posts, each with a sign the size of an average estate agent’s board, have appeared in what was until recently a green expanse free from any signage and any cars in the evening.
Councillor Lord Ampthill trumpeted the new parking scheme at Monday evening’s Rye Town Council meeting but neglected to say that the result has been to turn what was once a green field not so far away into a dystopian Golgotha.
One has to wonder what horrors Rother has in store for Rye High Street once Civil Parking Enforcement is enacted if this hideous savaging of the Camber Car Park is anything to go by.
