How we are helping with car parking during the Coronavirus pandemic


The guidance below sets out the updated details of how we continue to run Teignbridge car parks for the benefit of our communities.

Free parking for NHS workers

The Government has extended the entitlement of NHS workers to park for free. So if you work for the NHS you can continue to use our car parks without having to worry about cost or time restrictions when carrying out your role. (Please however do not park in any space or car park marked reserved).

Please display a copy of your ID badge or a document showing that you work for the NHS. Alternatively you can email with your registration and proof of your NHS employment and we will register your vehicle as being able to park without charge.

This concession includes the Cricketfield Road car park. If you need a pass for Cricketfield please email to request a passcard providing the registration of your vehicle and proof of your employment with the NHS.

This concession does not include the Newfoundland Way car park as passcards cannot be used in this car park.

Newton Abbot Multi Storey Car Park

The new permanent opening times for the Multi Storey car park are 8am to 6pm Monday to Saturday.

Customers are urged to follow the markings and in particular observe the one way system in the two stairwells with one being up only and the other down. Unless from one household, the lift is split in two by markings and users must stay on either side of the line, keeping as much distance as possible. Face masks also need to be used when parking in this location.

To reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus we are asking everyone to go cashless if they can when paying for parking. Payments can be made at no additional cost by contactless debit/credit cards, Apple Pay or GPay.


You can purchase permits online or use the RingGo app to pay for parking, neither of which requires you to leave your property. If you are self-isolating and you receive a Penalty Charge Notice, we will take a pragmatic approach to any appeal received. You may be asked to provide evidence of your need to self-isolate.
