Parking permits can offer you huge savings, as well as being very convenient.

Having a permit means you do not have to visit our pay & display machines or carry change with you. Our permits are now virtual, so there is no paper permit to display in your vehicle.

What permits are available?

Permits are issued in specific town and villages for either town centre, peripheral or rural car parks.

  • Town centre permits are valid in specific town centre car parks. 
  • Peripheral permits are valid in car parks within the outskirts of a specific town
  • Rural permits are valid in particular car parks in rural locations.

Permits are issued in one vehicle registration number only and allow the holder to park at any time in any of the car parks listed for that permit below.

Business permits can be sold to named businesses for any vehicle in connection with their business activities.

Permits are only valid in the town/village selected and the allocated car parks within that area. For example, a Totnes town centre permit is not valid in Kingsbridge.

Permits are now virtual, except Business, Weekly and Dartmouth Park & Ride permits
