Cheaper parking for festive season in East Devon

PUBLISHED: 17:00 06 December 2016


District bosses have reminded Christmas shoppers that they can benefit from cheaper car parking.

East Devon District Council (EDDC) is letting motorists park in its car parks all day after 10am for £2 until March 31.

Councillor Iain Chubb, East Devon District Council’s portfolio holder for the environment, said; “We are already beginning to see more £2 tickets appearing in windscreens and we expect even more people to take up this fantastic offer in the lead up to Christmas. It’s a thank you to our loyal customers and we hope it will also support all of our local town centre businesses.

“The £2 tickets are also an opportunity to explore our wonderful district and World Heritage Site Jurassic coastline.”

The offer is available in EDDC’s 39 pay and display car parks and excludes Parkmobile payments and permit holders.

EDDC says motorists should note that tickets will not show the expiry time of midnight, but parking officers will be checking that £2 has been paid after 10am, allowing parking for the rest of the day.
