Blue Badge Users
Vehicles using a disabled blue badge to park are able to use on-street pay and display bays free of charge, provided that their vehicle fits wholly within one marked space. If your vehicle does not fit entirely within a marked bay, then you must seek alternative parking suitable to your size/type of vehicle. Blue badge users are also able to stay at the location for an unlimited amount of time. There are also designated disabled bays in a considerable number of pay and display areas.
If there are parking restrictions outside of a property you are moving in to or out of, please contact Parking Services on 01803 207417 to inform us that this is happening. Removals vehicles are able to park free of charge in on street pay and display bays for the duration of the move, however we must be given prior notice to the move date. Failure to inform us may result in the issue of a Penalty Charge Notice.
Goods vehicles used by scaffolders when erecting scaffold or flat roofers using hot tar can park free of charge in on street pay and display bays for the duration of works being carried out, however prior notice must be given to us. Failure to inform us may result in the issue of a Penalty Charge Notice.
Loading and unloading within on street pay and display bays is not permitted free of charge. A parking dispensation notice is available for goods vehicles and large deliveries. Private and non goods vehicles must purchase a ticket from the pay and display machines adjacent to the on street bay. Alternatively private and non goods vehicles can use double yellow lines or a loading bay to load or unload without making payment.
Parking Dispensation Notice
Dispensations are available for vehicles to park in on street pay and display bays, as at other on street restrictions.
Frequently Asked Questions
We are faced with commonly asked questions from the public regarding on street parking and we have a series of FAQ's dedicated to helping solve any queries you may have.
There are parking restriction signs in the relevant streets stating payment is required, the maximum stay and return times as well as directing motorists to the relevant pay and display machines situated in the street by the use of directional arrows. Before leaving a vehicle unattended the motorist should read the signs and the notice on the pay and display machines for terms and conditions.
When visiting on street pay and display parking bays, Civil Enforcement Officers will check the expiry time of tickets and vehicles. If parking time has expired on the ticket purchased or a ticket is not displayed the Civil Enforcement Officer will check the nearest pay and display machine to see if a motorist is purchasing a ticket. If no one is present at the pay and display machine a Penalty Charge Notice will be issued and notes made in the Civil Enforcement Officers pocket book to that affect. If a motorist is in the process of purchasing a ticket from the nearest pay and display machine they will be given time to purchase the ticket and return to the vehicle to display the ticket and in these instances only, a Penalty Charge Notice will not be issued.
Any vehicles which park outside the bay markings overlapping in the next bay, preventing other motorists using that bay will be issued a Penalty Charge Notice if only one ticket has been purchased for one parking bay.
For large vehicles such as large vans and motor homes, if your vehicle cannot fit entirely within one marked bay, then you must seek alternative parking suitable to your size/type of vehicle. Civil enforcement officers may issue penalty charge notices where vehicles overlap the marked bays onto the highway, footway, or verges. We would also add that there are car parks across Torbay without height restrictions, where larger vehicles are permitted to park across multiple parking bays, provided they have purchased and displayed a pay and display ticket for each bay their vehicle occupies. On street limited waiting bays may also be used which do not have individually marked spaces, and may accommodate longer vehicles.
Meter feeding is not permitted in any on street pay and display parking bays to extend the parking period beyond the maximum stay allowed at that location.
