Parking spaces available at Exmouth Town Hall

PUBLISHED: 16:22 30 November 2017 | UPDATED: 16:22 30 November 2017


Spaces at the car park next to Exmouth Town Hall have been made available to the general public.

Previously, the car park was restricted on weekdays to motorists visiting the town hall, but following the end of refurbishment works at the facility, East Devon District Council (EDDC) says it has made the 31-space car park available seven days a week on a short stay, pay and display basis.

An EDDC spokesperson said: “Users of the 31-space car park should always check the sign next to the pay and display ticket machine for details about tariff and length of stay.

“However, currently, shoppers and visitors can take advantage of the council’s winter shopper parking special, which offers all day parking for just £2 per day right through the winter until March 2018.”

Councillor Tom Wright, EDDC’s portfolio holder for the environment, said:

“The location of this small car park, which is so close to the Strand and town centre businesses, has persuaded me that it is in the best interests of the town to offer these parking spaces to the public rather than reserving them for people working in or visiting the town hall.

“I am confident that in the run up to Christmas this will give shoppers and visitors another chance to find a parking space close to where they want to be and the winter offer means that they can then explore the town’s shops and other businesses at their leisure without worrying about expired car park tickets.”
