Parking in Totnes


Overview

Car Parking

The local car parks, a mix of short and long stay, are managed by South Hams District Council, who offer a variety of residents and visitors permits. One of the most popular is the weekly visitors permit, which allows unrestricted parking in a selection of car parks around the district. From January 1st 2011, these will cost £32. They are available from Totnes Information Centre or from South Hams District Council. See www.southhams.gov.uk for car park locations and tariffs.

Totnes town centre has time restricted parking meters on the main street. There is also a residential parking scheme in place on many of the roads immediately around the town centre.

Motorbike Parking

There are designated motorbike parking bays in four of the District Council car parks in town. There is no charge for parking in these bays. See www.southhams.gov.uk for more details.
