1. Car parking permits

We offer three standard types of permits:

Town/area

This type of permit can be used in a specified town or area. The area will be specified on the permit. You are allowed to visit each short stay car park in that area for up to three hours a day. You can only make one visit to each short stay car park a day. It also allows you to stay in the long stay car parks within that area for as long as you need.

Town/area economy

This type of permit gives the same benefits as the town/area permit but also allows holders to park in any other council long and short stay car parks throughout East Devon for up to three hours. You can only make one visit to each car park a day.

East Devon
