Shoreham Port has been working in partnership with GXS Security Services who have taken over the enforcement of restricted parking in key areas of the Port, as from the 1st April. The parking restrictions are vital in ensuring the safe and efficient running of the Port. Parking restrictions are in place along Basin Road South, Basin Road North, Basin Road East and Waterside Road.
The Port communicated a message of goodwill to stakeholders over the Easter holiday. The message informed owners of illegally parked vehicles that fines would be wavered over the Easter period as an exercise in positive education of the terms that govern parking within the harbour area.
The restrictions have been in place for many years. However, with the new leisure season about to start, the Port has a duty to ensure that critical areas of the Port remain clear for emergency services and general port use.
Julian Seaman, Harbour Master/Director of Marine Operations at Shoreham Port commented “We hope that our stakeholders will continue to enjoy visiting the Port and will utilise the visitor parking available on Basin Road South, opposite gate 4, and the council run car park next to Carats Café. I would like to thank GXS Security Services for their assistance in delivering this message clearly and effectively to our stakeholders.”
Mike O’Hagan from GXS Security Services commented “We have been working with Shoreham Port for just over one year. During this time we have established a close working relationship. Shoreham is an extremely busy commercial port and vital gateway to the UK. Our role is to assist with the safe and efficient running of the harbour, whilst facilitating general public use.
We hope that members of the public understand the need for parking restrictions and look upon the security measures taken in a positive way. It is important to Shoreham Port and GXS to maintain a good working relationship with all port users for both leisure and working practises
