Free car parking in run up to Christmas

To enhance trade in the market towns in the run up to Christmas, and to support local Christmas programmes, free car parking will be available in our long-stay car parks

Car parking

We're only responsible for parking that takes place in our car parks and on our land. On-street parking is the responsibility of Devon County Council.

There are a number of car parks within Mid Devon, some are pay-and-display and some are free of charge, see Free car parks. The main towns of Tiverton, Cullompton and Crediton, all have pay-and-display car parks. Tickets can be bought by machine with coins, chip & pin and contactless card payments or payment can be made via RingGo mobile services. As of December, virtual parking permits will be available and can be purchased from us in advance. See Car parking permit charges.

You can register and purchase a virtual permit at

All car parks are available for use 24 hours a day 7 days a week, apart from the multi-storey car park in Tiverton where the main body of the car park is locked overnight (please note a small section of the multi-storey car park is available 24 hours a day however, spaces are limited and cannot be reserved). There is an overnight parking charge for part or whole of the period 6.00pm to 8.00am (apart from the multi-storey car park in Tiverton). Car park charges apply 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Tariff boards at every pay-and-display car park show charges and times applicable. It is the responsibility of all car park users to read the tariff board and ensure they comply with the conditions stated. Drivers showing a valid disabled user Blue Badge must pay for parking but will be granted a one hour extension to the pay-and-display ticket displayed. Enforcement officers make regular patrols of car parks and issue Parking Charge Notices for parking infringements, see Enforcement and challenges.

To activate our pay and display machines please enter the last 3 characters of the vehicle registration and proceed to ticket and payment options.
