North Devon Council’s planning committee has unanimously approved plans for installing a new pay-on-exit automatic barrier at the Saunton Sands car park despite serious opposition from concerned local residents.
As a result, a new Automatic Number Plate Recognition System and equipment including barriers, cameras and pay-stations are set to be installed on the premises.
The decision was made in spite of fierce opposition from campaigners who had protested against the initial proposed charges of £2 for the first hour and £1.50 per hour thereafter, with a locals’ discount of half price for an initial £50 season ticket. Thousands have signed a petition opposing the plans and the council has received 473 letters of objection.
Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles has an extensive experience in creating advanced, reliable, yet quite affordable access restriction solutions for car parks.
The vehicle barriers developed by Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles can work in any weather, are able to immediately recognise authorised personnel and are supplied complete and ready to accept power and data connections, meaning that they can be easily interlinked with a new or existing access control system. Plus, boom arms are available in a number of different lengths to suit various road widths.
Last, but certainly not least, it’s important to mention that the automatic car park barriers supplied by Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles can also be fitted with a number of useful extras, such as a folding arm mechanism, impact release mechanism or hanging racks / barrier skirts.
