“Word my bond”

Regarding your article last week “Parking permit Anger”

No formal agreement exists and Devon County Council has stated they cannot allow the arrangement to continue.

‘My word is my bond’ does not appear to apply to the DCC!

They have made an arbitrary decision, without consultation, to deprive local Exmouth residents of a benefit which is an important part of living in Exmouth - enjoying the beaches and sea views.

Since arriving in Exmouth, 12 years ago, we have bought an annual parking permit not only for our shopping, but also to enjoy our lovely sea views.

My wife and I visit the seafront at least once every week and will be forced into having to consider whether we can afford the extra cost or lose a major benefit of living in Exmouth.

This decision is going to further affect all those others who are struggling with increased cost of living.

EDITOR’S NOTE: People holding East Devon District Council parking permits will not be allowed to park in Devon County Council bays on the seafront for free from April 1. DCC will no longer allow the arrangement due to the “economic climate”.
