Anybody with a current parking permit for one of North Devon Council's car parks will get them extended by the amount of time their permit was valid during the Coronavirus lockdown.

North Devon Council stopped charging in its car parks when the lockdown began but there are many people who had paid for permits in advance.

NDC Car Parks Manager Nicola Keyworth-Wright says: "As we're not currently charging in our car parks, it's only fair that those people who have already paid for a permit get free parking too. All permits that have been valid during the lockdown will get them extended by how ever many days their permit was valid during this period. There's no need to contact us about it - it will all be sorted out once we get beyond the lockdown."

This only applies to permits for North Devon Council car parks. NDC doesn't manage on-street parking or any private car parks where the arrangements might be different.
