Parking coronavirus update

Service updates due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Car parks and on street pay and display bays

Last updated on 20 April 2021

Anyone using our car parks, or an on street pay and display bay, is asked to adhere to social distancing guidelines and to ensure they use hand sanitiser before and after using the parking machine to minimise their risk of catching and spreading the virus.

Customers are reminded that parking charges both on and off street are in operation at all times. Enforcement of on and off street restrictions continues as normal, which includes yellow lines, resident permit zones, loading and unloading, disabled parking bays and pay and display bays both on street and in car parks. Motorists should make sure they are aware of the restrictions where they are parking in order to avoid receiving a penalty charge notice.

If anyone wishes to avoid the use of coins or contact with a pay and display machine, the RingGo app may be used which allows ‘hands free’ payments to be made. Further details on this payment method can be found on the information boards next to the ticket machines in the car parks, or on the sides of the machines at on street pay and display bays.

Parking arrangements for NHS and critical care workers

Changes to car parking arrangements for NHS and critical care workers across Torbay.

In March 2020, we introduced temporary parking permits to allow free parking for NHS staff and critical care workers to attend emergency response situations and carry out other vital roles to support Torbay’s vulnerable residents during the pandemic.
