Parking meters considered for Budleigh Salterton
Plans to introduce parking charges along Budleigh Salterton’s seafront forged ahead this week when the county council announced it was considering installing five meters.
Devon County Council said the pay-and-display parking charges will be implemented along Marine Parade and Coastguard Hill.
The county council said Budleigh’s High Street would not face parking charges under the new regime.
A spokesman for Devon County Council said: “We are not proposing to go ahead with the town centre.”
The county council said it was considering between four and five parking meters following a ‘quick’ look at the area

The council said the meters would be evenly spaced, to prevent the need to walk long distances when purchasing tickets.
It aimed to space meters ‘sympathetically’ - installing machines between ground floor windows of homes to preserve the view.
