My wife and I recently visited Crediton and were pleasantly surprised at the interesting range of independently run shops in the town.
Many people were doing their shopping, despite there being a large Tesco store on the edge of town.
I wonder if low parking charges have anything to do with Crediton being busy with shoppers?
You can park in Crediton for up to five hours for £1, which is five times cheaper than Exmouth.
Perhaps East Devon District Council should start supporting small local traders by reducing their extortionate parking charges?
