Your 4 Car Season Ticket for 2016
2016 Season Ticket: £175
The new ANPR car parking system (set to go live in April) enables us to offer beach users a more flexible Season Ticket for 2016, with the following benefits:
+ Provision for up to 3 extra vehicles to be added to the ticket for free
+ Free access to Sandy Lane for the primary vehicle
+ A full 12-month validity period from the date of purchase
Prices will be frozen at the 2015 rate of £175, that works out at just £3.37 per week!
To apply for a Season Ticket, please visit the Beach Shop to pick up an application form. Alternatively, you can download and print the form at the bottom of the page.
Please note: Until the ANPR system is in place, only one car will be permitted to use the ticket. The software that allows for multiple vehicles to be registered on one ticket is new, so there could be some teething problems. Until the system is running smoothly, staff will be on hand to help.
Our 4 Car Policy
The 2016 season ticket will allow for up to 3 extra registration numbers to be added to the ticket, free of charge.
Only one vehicle will be entitled use the ticket at any one time.
If more than one vehicle registered on the ticket wish to use the car park simultaneously, the first car to enter will be entitled to free parking, whilst the other vehicles will be required to pay the standard hourly tariff (please see below for further details).
Will I need to visit the Pay Station if I have a Season Ticket?
If you have 2 or more vehicles registered on your Season Ticket, you will need to visit the Pay Station before you exit.
If the two or more registered vehicles are using the car park at the same time, the vehicles last to enter will be need to pay the standard tariff. The vehicle that was first to enter will not be charged (the pay station will display a “no charge” message), but all vehicle drivers must visit a pay station.
If you only have one vehicle registered on your Season Ticket, you will not be required to visit the pay stations at any time. You may simply drive in and out at will.
There will be a 20-minute exit period in which to leave the car park, after visiting the pay station.
Out of Hours Visiting
When visiting out of hours, both vehicles may use the car park for free. If the entire duration of your stay remains within non-charging hours, you will not have to visit a pay station before leaving. If, however, you arrive or exit within charging hours, you will need to visit a pay station to pay for the chargeable portion of your stay.
Assigning a ‘Primary’ Vehicle
When you complete the Season Ticket registration form, you will be asked to nominate a ‘primary’ registration number. The primary vehicle will receive a window sticker that entitles this vehicle only, to complimentary free parking at Sandy Lane Car Park (valid for 12 months).
The extra vehicles will be added to the ticket once the new software has been written (expected by late Spring). Proof that all vehicles are registered to the same domestic address is required.
12-Month Validity Period
Unlike previous years, 2016 Saunton Season Tickets will be valid for a full 12 months from the date of purchase. After this 12-month period is up, the ticket will automatically expire on our system. To help you to remember when to renew, the window sticker for the primary vehicle will be marked with an expiry date.
Are Sandy Lane Season Tickets still available?
Yes, and they’re cheaper! Sandy Lane Season tickets will be reduced to just £50 and will be valid from 1st April 2016 – 31st March 2017.
Will there be a “Locals’ Discount Scheme”?
Based on feedback received as part of our consultation period in November 2015, we have taken the decision to shelve original plans for a ‘Locals’ Discount Scheme’. This is because beach users told us that they would much rather see the return of the original season Ticket, which we are providing with the provision for an extra car.
What about members of Saunton Surf Life Saving Club?
We are working closely with SSSLC to be able to offer free parking to club members during club meeting hours. There will also be agreed ‘drop off’ and ‘pick up’ times either side of these hours. This means that if you’ve previously bought a Season Ticket simply to take part in club activities, this time will now be free.
Club members who use the car park outside of club hours will be charged as per normal. Therefore, club members will have to visit the pay station before exiting the car park, regardless of whether they are parking within club hours. The pay station will display a “no charge” message to members visiting within club hours.
What will the charge be for a change of details?
There will be a £10 admin fee to change the details of a registered vehicle.
What will the hourly tariff be?
A new hourly charging tariff will allow beach users to pay only for the time they use in the car park, rather than having to pay a full day’s rate irrespective of how long they intend to stay. Therefore, depending on individual usage, it may now be cheaper for some users to use the ‘pay as you go’ system, rather than buy a season ticket. Click here to see the new hourly rates.
