District council has received no opposition to parking proposals approved at a December meeting.
A raft of changes to off street parking proposed by North Devon Council have apparently received no objection from the public.
A report to the council’s executive committee will say on Tuesday of next week (January 7) that, at the time of writing, a consultation advertising the various changes had generated no opposition.
Although no major changes were proposed, the executive considered a slew of proposals at its December meeting to be included in its new Off Street Parking Order, which covers car parks across the district.
Barnstaple’s short stay parking charge is to be reduced from 31 to 50p per hour on Sundays between January 12 and April 13.
