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.
