In considering the Mayor’s budget and savings proposals for 2015/2016, the Overview and Scrutiny Board recommended that a review of car parking be undertaken.  The Mayor, in his response to the Board’s report, supported the recommendation and asked officers to undertake a full review covering the main issues raised by the Board. 

The objective was to review parking in Torbay to ensure that there is a collective understanding and consensus for the fair delivery of parking in Torbay.

The review involved a mixture of consultation, benchmarking and desk-top research. The Report of the Review will now be presented to the Overview and Scrutiny Board and the Mayor. It will be used to inform the production of an updated Parking Strategy which sits beneath the Devon and Torbay Local Transport Plan (2011- 2026). The review will be also be used to help determine future parking tariffs.
