With immediate effect and in response to tonight’s broadcast by the Prime Minister, Combe Martin Parish Council (CMPC) has suspended car parking charges in its car parks at Kiln, Parade, and Cormelles.   The ticket machines will be taken out of use and covered or taped over tomorrow.

The regulations covering the parking of vehicles within parking bays will still apply and enforcement action will be taken against those creating a problem.  

Cormelles car park is likely to get very busy, so please give priority to essential NHS workers and other Carers, who may need a space when returning from their shift.

Use the Kiln (and upper Marine Drive) car park if you are taking a vehicle out of use for an extended period.

The issue of permits has already stopped and CMPC will be looking at the implications for current permit holders.  

The Government has issued advice about what people need to do now and that is STAY AT HOME

  • Only go outside for food, health reasons or essential work
  • Stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home
