Work is taking place in the Luxford car park, Uckfield, in preparation for a change in the enforcement regime.
Spaces facing the High Street will all be a “shoppers’ car park” with a three-hour time limit.
Spaces facing Holy Cross Church will be medium term, with a ten-hour time limit.
Enforcement will be by Automatic Number Plate Recognition cameras which were being installed last week.
Car park owner, Wealden District Council, is also putting in new signage.
The changes are being made ready for the opening of a railway station car park, being built by Network Rail, which will cater for long-term parking.
The maximum time allowed for parking in the lower car park will be three hours. The upper area will be restricted to ten hours.
A Wealden District Council spokesman said the new regulations would come into force later in the spring to coincide with the opening of the Network Rail car park.
“Until then the new parking space designations do not apply. The old ones remain in force,” he said.
He added that Wealden’s car parking order was based on the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, which allows for the use of Automatic Number Plate Recognition technology.
