Charges in North Devon Council owned car parks increased on Monday 16 May, following a district-wide review of parking.
From Thursday 14 April, Western Power Distribution will be carrying out work to their substation on Barnstaple Quay, next to Commercial Road. To enable them to access the substation safely, some of the parking spaces will be out of action until the end of May.
Entry and exit barriers and new payment machines have been installed at Hardaway Head (site of the old multi-storey off Queen Street) and Bear Street car parks.
The new pay-on-foot scheme involves taking a ticket at the barrier and paying for your parking when you return to your vehicle. This means you do not have to rush back to your car before your ticket runs out, giving you more time to spend in town.
The new payment machines take coins, notes, credit and debit cards. More information is available on our pay-on-foot page
