A traffic order banning campervans and motorhomes from parking overnight on part of Exmouth seafront has been approved.

Devon County Council’s East Devon Highways and Traffic Order Committee (HATOC) green-lit the bid last week.

Once implemented, campervans will be banned from parking overnight between the lifeboat station and Orcombe Point, as well as ‘specified lengths’ on the other side of the RNLI base, in Queen’s Drive.

East Devon District Council (EDDC) has committed to creating 70 campervan-sized bays for overnight parking in its Imperial Road, Maer Road and Queen’s Drive Echelon off-street car parks.

A meeting will now be held between district, town and county councils to decide when the order will begin.
