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.

Permits are issued in specific towns and villages. 

  • 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.


About our Permits

  • Permits are issued to one vehicle registration and allow the holder to park at any time in any of the car parks listed for that permit below. 
  • Permits are only valid in the town/village selected and the allocated car parks within that area. For example, a Tavistock town centre permit is not valid in Okehampton. 
  • Permits do not guarantee the right to a bay in any particular car park and does not allow parking in reserved bays.  
  • Your vehicle must be taxed in order to validate your parking permit. 
  • Permits are now virtual, except Business Permits.
