Devon County Council’s East Devon Highways and Traffic Orders Committee has been recommended to approve the traffic order which would ban campervans from parking overnight between the lifeboat station and Orcombe Point.

A proposed traffic order which would prohibit campervans from parking in sections of Exmouth seafront is set for approval.

Devon County Council’s East Devon Highways and Traffic Order Committee (HATOC) are set to discuss the draft measures at its meeting on Thursday (April 19).

If given the go-ahead campervans and motor homes would be banned from parking in Queen’s Drive between the lifeboat station and Orcombe Point overnight from 8pm until 8am the next morning.

They would also be banned from parking in ‘specified sections’ of Queen’s Drive on the other side of the lifeboat station ‘at any time’.

Once the order is in place, East Devon District Council has committed to implement a scheme to create 70 new campervan bays in its Imperial, Queen’s Drive Echelon and Maer Road car parks.

The East Devon HATOC committee has been recommended to approve the measures.

Meg Booth, chief officer for highways, infrastructure development and waste, said: “The recommendation is based on the responses from the statutory consultation and the partnership working with Exmouth Town Council and East Devon District Council.”
