Seaside resorts get free Sunday parking
Teignmouth and Dawlish have joined the rest of Teignbridge car parks in being free on Sundays.
Teignbridge-owned car parks in the two seaside resorts have re-joined the successful scheme which sees all 35 of the council’s car parks free of any charges on a Sunday.
The free parking scheme is aimed at boosting local trade and cutting costs to motorists.
Sundays are free of charge throughout the year for all urban and rural parts of the district. Charges apply through the summer months in Teignmouth and Dawlish.
Now the peak season is over, the two resorts have been put back into the free scheme to encourage more local people and visitors during the quieter months.
Since the scheme was launched in July 2011 it has been welcomed by residents, visitors and traders.
Free Sunday parking applies in all 35 of Teignbridge Council’s charged car parks which are open on a Sunday. A further 26 across the district offer free parking all of the time. It does not apply to on-street spaces which are operated separately by Devon County Council.
Notices are on the pay and display machines in all the car parks telling motorists that it is free on Sundays from now on.
