We are responsible for all on-street parking in Devon. District councils are responsible for their own local car parks.

New £1 Coins and On Street Parking In Devon

We have been assured by our contractor that work to update the first 62 on-street parking machines will be completed in the first half of July. They estimate that work on the remaining 188 machines will be completed in August, two months before the old £1 coin ceases to be legal tender.

In the meantime stickers have been  placed on the machines to alert the public if a machine does not accept the new coin and these will be removed as the machines are updated.

And remember you can use our mobile phone cashless payment system  and still pay using £2 coins as well as 10, 20 and 50 pence pieces

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.
