In recent years there have been increasing numbers of motorhomes and campervan users opting to use car parks and other locations for overnight stays in the South Hams. This proposal would allow overnight sleeping for a two-night consecutive stay in some car parks, with no return within 48 hours.

The Council recommend stays would be at certain car parks for self-contained motorhomes and campervans only. They would be able to stay overnight for a fee of £15 in North Sands (Salcombe), Slapton and Torcross. from 6 p.m. until 9 a.m. All other car parks would be £10 overnight.

The aim is to improve tourism, which is particularly important following the recent COVID pandemic when overseas travel is limited.
