Clock parking permits for Lyme residents offer more flexibility

Clock parking permits for Lyme residents offer more flexibility

NEW parking clocks will allow Lyme Regis residents to park for two hours for free at any time of the day.

Lyme Regis Town Council is issuing new permits to local residents to use in any of its three car parks – Woodmead, Monmouth Beach and Cabanya.

Residents can already park for free all day during the winter months between November and Easter, but the new clock permits will give added flexibility to park for two hours in the months in between.

The council has introduced the clock permits as a way of giving something back to the residents.

Cllr Richard Doney, who suggested the idea, said: "I am delighted that the council is able to offer this improved parking concession to residents. Being usable through the day gives greater flexibility and the inclusion of the beach car parks gives greater choice."

The clock permits can be collected from the town council office and will be available to anyone who already has a residents’ concessionary permit.

Anyone who doesn’t already have a concessionary permit can obtain one by showing their council tax bill for a Lyme Regis address, along with the vehicle’s V5 registration document displaying the same address.

The normal concessionary permit can be applied for on the council’s website at https://www.lymeregistowncouncil.gov.uk/permits.
