We are responsible for all on-street parking in Devon. District councils are responsible for their own local car parks.
Update: Dispensation scheme
After reviewing the charges applied to our dispensation service, it has been agreed that the charging mechanism needs to be updated. Charges to customers have already been adjusted as an interim measure. Refunds will be offered as new measures are put in place for an appropriate and compliant charging mechanism. Existing customers will be notified by email in due course of future changes and any refunds due. Further updates will be provided throughout this process.
In this section of the site you can:
- pay or appeal a parking ticket
- apply for a residents’ parking permit
- apply for a parking dispensation to park on the road while carrying out work
- search and view new and existing Traffic Regulation Orders (including the Teignmouth traffic management review).
All parking restrictions are governed by our current Devon consolidated traffic order. This explains all current parking prohibitions and restrictions, and all valid pay and display zones and permit zones.
Since April 2014 Devon County Council has provided an in-house on-street service, you can find out how our service has performed during the first two years of operation here:
We publish our parking ticket statistics showing how many tickets have been issued in each town. As some tickets are still going through the appeals process, these figures are always published in arrears.

How is parking revenue spent?
Money generated by the parking service is typically spent on enforcing parking restrictions, maintaining equipment such as pay and display machines, public transport and improving parking areas. The way money is spent is agreed annually by the Cabinet and is published in our County Road Highway Maintenance Revenue Budget and On-street Parking Account.
