Ed: The changes are for county council seafront parking only, not district council car parks.

--------

Parking charges are set to rise on Exmouth seafront from Friday 30 September for pay-and-display spaces run by Devon County Council.

They will also go up at Budleigh Salterton, Sidmouth, and Seaton, with no variation for summer or winter.

A Devon County Council spokesperson said: "New pay and display tariffs in Devon come into effect on 30 September for the majority of the county, and this is the first review of its kind for more than three years (2019/2020).

"It is normal practice for highway authorities to periodically review these tariffs to ensure that are consistent with any changes made by our district partners who operate public car parks.

"Additionally the changes will help us to ensure that the right parking opportunities are available for the public to use which will in turn help support our communities and town centres."
