The cost of parking in Topsham and Exeter is set to change after proposals for new car parking tariffs were introduced.

Exeter City Council has announced the planned change to encourage people to stay long in the city.

Motorists parking in short stay car parks will see a reduction in charges across the board.

A one hour stay will be reduced from £1.20 to £1, while a four hour stay will go down from £5.70 to £4.

Charges in long stay car parks will be brought in line with the short stay car parks and tariffs in Holman Way, Topsham, will be reduced.

The new parking charges will go before the council’s executive on Tuesday, September 13 and, if given the go-ahead by full council later in the month, will see the new charges in place by January next year.

Cllr Rosie Denham, lead councillor for economy and culture, said the new strategy was designed to simplify the pricing structure and encourage visitor dwell time.
