Exeter residents’ parking

2018 consultations

Devon County Council has undertaken consultations across various areas of Exeter to decide whether to introduce residents parking restrictions in these areas:

The areas consulted were:

  • Monks Road Area (Reference ENV5718)
  • Newcourt Area (Reference ENV5720)
  • Princes Street Area (Reference ENV5721)
  • Wardrew Road Area (Reference ENV5719).

Consultations

Why are we doing this? Residents have contacted the council to report that they are experiencing difficulties with the current on-street parking that is taking place.

Why should I respond? It is important that we know the current views of everyone who might be affected, by new restrictions. Your response will contribute to the final decision.

When do I have to respond by? The dates of the consultations were:

Residents within each area were sent an information leaflet in the post with details of the background, the consultation and how to respond.
