Teignbridge District Council - Parking Review

Dear Business

Teignbridge District Council’s Overview & Scrutiny Committee has appointed a Review Group to undertake a strategic review of the Council’s off street parking policies to ensure the parking policy and operations remain current and effective to reflect the local need, whilst being cost-effective, embracing of new technologies and approaches to car parking. It will specifically examine:


  • Comparisons with other neighbouring local authorities off street car parking policies and charges.


  • Potential modernisation of car parking equipment e.g. charging systems, number plate recognition and use of mobile phones, by identifying which car parks would benefit from this and pay on exit systems.


  • To understand the effects of car parking with the redevelopment of Newton Abbot (Halcyon Road area).


  • To consider the differing needs in each of the following areas: rural/urban/coastal and seasonal charges.


  • Management of Forde House Campus facility to ensure complex related usage.


The Chairman of the Review Group would like to invite anyone who would be interested in contributing to the review process to contact us. Consultation is extremely important to Teignbridge Councillors, who wish to ensure they are fully briefed on the most pertinent issues before making their recommendations. 


If you could please provide a written representation to Karen.Mason@teignbridge.gov.uk or sent by post to the address below by 13th November 2015 to enable any representations to be fed into the final report which will form part of the budget process.

Kind regards,
