In response to the request for Mortehoe and Georgeham to be included in the public consultation despite there being no changes.  The Parking Manager agreed this would allow residents of that ward to put forward any changes they thought should be considered.


The Parking Manager confirmed she would check that the wording “No Sleeping” would be included in the order for Croyde.


In response to a question on clarification of the definition of a Van.  The Parking Manager explained that a van was a vehicle that weighed over 3 and a half tonnes un-laden.  As long as a vehicle could park within the white lines it could park and pay as if classified as a car.
