Parking charges in Torbay are being slashed this weekend in a bid to boost the local economy. The move comes after local businesses asked the council to come up with ways to attract more shoppers.

Motorists will be able to park for £1 using a special voucher.

We appreciate the concerns of the business community and we are very keen to work with them to identify ways that will benefit businesses and motorists. Hopefully this will encourage many people to come to our towns to go shopping and enjoy all the other facilities and attractions the town centres in Torquay, Paignton and Brixham have to offer.
