South Hams Car Park Charges Return on 1st June

South Hams District Council will begin charging again for car parks from 1 June.
The Council is advising people to use the RingGo payment app where possible to help limit the spread of COVID-19.
The Council’s concern is for the safety of car park users, local communities and their staff. It is estimated that the virus can survive for several days on hard surfaces. Therefore, they wish to minimise the need for people to touch the parking machines where possible. Social distancing will be a feature of our lives for some time to come and we all need to take action to limit the spread of the virus. If everyone continues to show a willingness to adapt, we can further protect our population as we move forward. If you need to use the machines, we suggest that you carry hand sanitiser to clean your hands before and after using them. Please respect other car park users and keep two metres apart while queuing for the machine.
Ringo is an excellent way to make parking quick and easy as well as safe. You no longer need to carry change to pay for parking, you do not have to go to the parking machine and there is no ticket to display. While parked, you can extend your parking time without needing to return to your car and you can even get a VAT receipt if you need one for your business.
If you register with RingGo and download the app, your mobile phone number and payment information will be saved ready for when you want to park your car.
Each car park has a unique location code, so if you are worried that there will be no signal at the carpark, you can set up payment before you leave home.
You can check the codes for each car park on the South Hams website at
