Ivybridge Town Council moves to clarify parking confusion

Ivybridge Town Council has moved to clarify the new details of the parking in Erme Court Car Park.

Ivybridge Town Council has posted on social media to counter "mis-information being repeated and repeated" about the rules about parking in the Erme Court Car Park. 

A spokesperson for the council said: "We have confirmed from senior people at the parking management company that you can enter and leave by any entrance or exit to Erme Court Car Park and the system will work.

"Please don't allow 'fake news' to put you off from supporting the local businesses in the town centre.

"The car park is now arguably more simple - simply drive in, do what you need to do in town, leave within two hours and not a penny to pay for parking, no smart phones needed.

"We have asked the company to speak to local staff to ensure they don't mislead visitors.

"Yes, restrictions do now apply 24/7, you cannot return within two hours and you do need a smart phone to stay over two hours but if you are not comfortable with that, it is possible to stay all day in Leonards Road car park for £2.10 and pay by either cash or card.

"The car park is also still free after 6pm and before 8am."

On the 20/09/22 I came to get my hair done I parked in Erme Court car park and paid the required £2 as was staying over 2hrs but under 3hrs the required fee. I now have a PCN charge for £100 but to add insult to injury on checking with my bank Parking control management (uk) ltd have not only taken money from my account for the 20/09 but also an unauthorised payment on 21/09 a day when my car was parked in Totnes from 0730/2000hrs
