As summer turns to autumn, there is a chill in the air as our worst premonitions come to roost. Lines are drawn, sides are taken, and soon new street architecture will appear. And Civil Parking Enforcement (CPE) may be feared as much as Covid-19 for a sea change is coming – but on land. CPE will be here before the year is out, and Rye will never be the same again.
Wardens stalking the streets and meters that always need to be fed. But, first, lines need to be drawn in the sand (or on the road) to define the regulations, ignored for so long. And there will be no going back. Meters here, permits there, controls everywhere.
Garages may sprout where once they were never conceived, and flowerbeds may be paved over, as an old town steps into a new world.
