Please note: we’re replacing the Pay and Display machines in our car parks for compatibility with the new 12 sided £1 coin. Any machines that are scheduled to be exchanged following the introduction of the new coin will be clearly labelled. Free parking will be available in car parks with only one machine if undergoing replacement at the time of parking (time restrictions will still apply).
Enforcement and challenges
Mid Devon car parks
All our car parks are regularly patrolled by Enforcement Officers, who will issue standard charge notices for any parking infringements.
We will consider challenges to parking tickets issued in car parks (but not for on-street parking, see below).
Challenges must be received in writing within 28 days of the Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) issue date and a valid challenge must include name and address for correspondence and must quote the PCN number. Any challenge received without these details will get a reply requesting the information before it will be considered. All challenges will be considered on their individual merit.
We will respond to all valid challenges within 14 days.
Challenges received within 14 days will “stop the clock” and we will allow payment of the fine at the lower discounted rate if the challenge is rejected.
If a challenge is rejected, a letter will be sent stating the reason for rejection which should reflect the circumstances involved.
If a challenge is accepted, a letter will be sent to confirm.
On-street parking in Mid Devon
From 1 April 2014 responsibility for Civil Parking Enforcement passed from Mid Devon District Council, who acted as an agent for Devon County Council for On-Street Enforcement, back to Devon County Council.
If you have received an on-street Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) on or after the 1 April 2014 and wish to make payment, or appeal a ticket, please contact Devon County Council as follows:
