‘Police advice’ prompts council to shut two Exmouth car parks and another in Seaton

District council bosses have shut a pair of Exmouth car parks – and another in Seaton – during the coronavirus pandemic on the advice of police. 

East Devon authority chiefs say the move has been made to ‘reinforce’ the Government’s social distancing advice to stop people driving to beaches and beauty spots.

They have closed the Maer Road and Foxholes sites in Exmouth and Seaton’s Jurassic long-stay facility.

This action has been taken to reinforce the clearly-stated government advice on social distancing, staying at home and not driving to beaches and beauty spots…

An East Devon District Council spokesperson said it had made the decision ‘on the advice of police’.

They added: “This action has been taken to reinforce the clearly-stated government advice on social distancing, staying at home and not driving to beaches and beauty spots.

“All other car parks currently remain open but are under review.”
