Have your say on Barnstaple long stay parking permits
Posted on: 13 December 2018
North Devon Council is inviting the public to comment on proposed changes to car parking charges and arrangements, including to Barnstaple long stay parking permits and Rolle Quay car park charges.
As part of their annual review of car parks, North Devon Council is considering making Rolle Quay car park and Barnstaple Rugby Club car park (weekdays only) available to long stay parking permit holders.
It is proposed that from March 15 2019, long stay permit holders will be able to park in the car parks at Barnstaple Rugby Club (during Mondays to Fridays only) and Rolle Quay (Monday to Sunday). It is also proposed that the charging structure for Rolle Quay is changed to 1 hour – £1.10, 2 hours – £2.20, 3 hours – £3.30, 4 hours – £4.40 and up to 24 hours – £5.
North Devon Council have suggested these changes in an effort to reduce the congestion in Fairview Road caused by capacity issues at nearby Fairview long stay car park. Fairview car park will remain unchanged, providing parking at £1.70 all day and free on Sundays.
North Devon Council Leader, Councillor Des Brailey says: “We keep our car parks under continual review to ensure they meet the needs of those who use them. By offering a cheaper all day option for visitors and allowing permit holders to park in both car parks, it will ensure the car parks are better used and will also relieve pressure on Fairview car park.”
All the proposed changes from North Devon Council, and Parish and Town Councils, are being advertised today (Thursday 13 December). A public consultation period of 28 days will also begin and is open until Thursday 11 January. Anyone wishing to comment on any of the proposed changes can do so by writing to North Devon Council, or you can find out more online.
Once the consultation is closed, the feedback will be presented to our councillors to decide whether the proposals should be put into place.Posted in: Economy
