Motorcycle Parking

Motorcycles and scooters may park for free in all Torridge District Council's car parks,with the exception of Bideford Manor Car Park, where they are permitted to park for one hour only.

 Motorcycle drivers are requested to park in dedicated motorcycle bays where available.

Where there are no dedicated motorcycle bays or where the motorcycle bays are full motorcycles may be parked in car bays. When using car bays it is important to show consideration to other car park users, by parking within the bay markings for example, and sharing car bays with other motorcycles where possible.

Under some circumstances, such as when all motorcycle and car bays are full, motorcycles may be permitted to park in other 'out of the way' areas at the Civil Enforcement Officers' discretion. Parking in hatched areas or in a manner that causes an obstruction is not permitted; if there is any doubt as to whether an area is suitable for motorcycles an alternative parking place should be sought.

Car park terms and conditions such as waiting restrictions will apply; see notice boards for details.
