Car park permit

Find out how to apply for a weekly, monthly or annual permit for car parks in Torbay.

Please be aware that Harbour car park, Torquay, is currently closed.

A recent inspection has identified defects in a small number of supporting beams in the car park structure. This means the multi storey section of the car park isn’t safe for pedestrians or cars until essential repairs can be carried out. This has required us to close both upper and lower parking levels. Parking for Premier Inn customers is unaffected by the closure.

Please be assured that the decision to close the car park was not taken lightly. We are aware that the closure will cause disruption for local businesses, residents and visitors alike. We are working hard to reopen the car park as soon as possible.

The closure includes both Montpellier Road and Museum Road entrances.

During the closure, you are advised to park in alternative local car parks at Meadfoot Road and Beacon Quay. Fleet Walk pay on exit car park and the Torquay Marina car park are also available.

Permits for Harbour car park can be used at Meadfoot Road and Beacon Quay car parks.

We appreciate your patience whilst the essential repairs are carried out. Further updates will be provided as new information becomes available.

Please be aware that parking permits are non-refundable.

For regular car park users we offer a variety of parking permits allowing you to use over 30 car parks across Torbay.

For example, did you know our annual off-peak parking permit works out at just £1.44 a week? This means if you park for more than an hour a week, the permit has paid for itself.

Our standard annual permit works out at £8.75 a week, which is less than the cost of paying for one full day ticket in Zone 1.

For someone using our car parks on a regular basis, there are great savings to be made.

Short stay time limits apply in Brixham Central, Great Western Road and Shoppers car parks.

Four day, eight day and monthly car park tickets can be bought at the card payment machines in the following car parks: Hampton Avenue, Town Hall, Shedden Hill, Beacon Quay, Victoria (levels 1 and 3), Clennon Valley, Broadsands, Brixham Central and Freshwater. These tickets must be clearly displayed when parking, with all details visible.
