South Hams District Council is proposing allowing overnight sleeping in a motorhome or caravan in council-owned car parks for two consecutive nights.
SHDC said that in recent years there have been "increasing numbers of motorhomes and campervan users opting to use car parks and other locations for overnight stays in the South Hams" and are therefore proposing "allowing overnight sleeping for a two-night consecutive stay in some car parks, with no return within 48 hours".
The council recommends that stays would be at certain car parks for self-contained motorhomes and campervans only. They would be able to stay overnight for a fee of £15 in North Sands (Salcombe), Slapton and Torcross. from 6pm until 9am. All other car parks would be £10 overnight.
The aim is to "improve tourism, which is particularly important following the recent COVID pandemic when overseas travel is limited".
The following car parks in these towns across the District will be included in the pilot scheme:
