The Parish Council and Parish Plan Steering Committee worked together to achieve the traffic calming measures currently in place through the
centre of the village. There are still some safety and traffic issues which a joint working party (KPC and PPSC) has been reinstated to look at,
with a brief to review safety for all users (pedestrians, cyclists, horse riders and motorists)along the whole length of the C324 (the road
through the village), including access at both the C7 and A27 junctions.
Wide vehicle monitoring
During July 2008, a party of volunteers carried out a study of the use of the by large vans and lorries which exceeded the 6'6" width restriction.
Results were sent to the local PCSO and the Parish Council.
Along with other organisations and groups, the Parish Plan Steering Committee was involved in the successful establishment of the multi-user path between
Kingston and Lewes.
East Sussex County Council's draft strategy includes a possible streamlining of the 123/145 bus service (Lewes, Kingston, The Ouse Valley,
Newhaven) which would reduce the service from hourly to every two hours and increase fares by up to 30%. Kingston Parish Council has submitted
a response which asks that no reductions are made in the service at a time when developments of both schools and businesses are planned for the
area, increasing the need for better public transport. A petition of over 440 signatures has been submitted to ESCC.
Kingston now has the benefit of the Northease school bus which returns to Brighton once every morning (Monday to Friday in term time) and back
in the early afternoon on its way to collect the schoolchildren.
