Ropery Road Car Park Update
Ilfracombe Town Council is pleased to announce the removal of the ANPR parking cameras in Ropery Road Car Park. Following feedback from Ilfracombe residents and visitors to the town regarding issues with the ANPR camera system, the Town Council agreed on the removal of the camera system and return to a traditional Pay and Display system.
The Pay and Display system is now in place with a new tariff and with the existing Ringo and cash payments. Users will need to pay when they first park and display their ticket as per terms and conditions of parking. During the coming months we are also upgrading the ticket machines to provide an option to pay by credit card which will increase usability for all our car park users.
The Mayor, Councillor Val Gates said “North Devon Council will now provide our car park monitoring. We are pleased to have reverted to a traditional pay and display system with easier ways to pay. The carpark will now be monitored by parking wardens rather than cameras! It has taken a while to exit from the previous contract but it was pretty obvious that our residents and visitors have been experiencing problems that we needed to deal with”
Winter Charges have now started and they are as follows –
08:00 – 18:00 Monday to Sunday

- Up to 24 hours £2.00
