Residents’ parking has been in place for a number of years in some towns in Devon. The demand for parking spaces exceeds supply and permits are a way of helping manage parking in particular areas for residents. However there is no guarantee of a parking space in any zone. Schemes are in place to deal with an area problem rather than individual streets.
Resident permit numbers are normally limited to 2 per household. The vehicle must be registered with DVLA at the address where the applicant lives. You may not apply for a residents permit for any address other than that recorded on your vehicles V5 document.
Occasional visitor permits, essential visitor permits (for those residents receiving care or support at home), or business permit’s for businesses operating in a resident’s zone are also available.
You may be asked to provide a copy of your V5, and one other form of evidence of residency or business at an address, e.g. utility bill, at any time once you have applied for a permit.
From the 1 November 2011, customers will be able to apply for, and renew their permits from the comfort of their own home using our new online service. Saving residents the need to visit Devon County Council, or Exeter City Council Offices as permits will be posted.
