Tourist Permits

Tourist Permits are a great option if you are on holiday or visiting friends or family in Torridge and cost just £20 for seven consecutive days parking. NOT VALID ON NORTHAM BURROWS.

Tourist Permits are limited to a maximum 14 days (£40) per applicant in any 12 month period.

The permits allow you to park in nearly all Torridge District Council car parks without restriction other than the Manor car park Bideford where the maximum stay permitted is 1 hour only.

Tourist Permits are available from the Council Offices, Tourist Information Centres or by completing the downloadable application form and returning it with your remittance to the Parking Office. Alternatively, you can also use the 'Pay by Phone' parking solution provided by Park Mobile.

Once your application is received it will be processed and sent by First Class Post, the process will take 2 or 3 working days.
