There are already a number of problems with parking during the Spring and Summer months (especially towards the sea front), but building housing and apartments on the existing Hawkwood Car Park should only be done if there are plans for improved car parking elsewhere. People won’t use public transport to get their families to and from the beach, and people won’t use the multi-storey car park at the back of the Sovereign Centre either. Space needs to be identified somewhere for parking. Lots of people currently use Hawkwood to get to and from the beach – I see them walking up and down Sea Road all the time.
