In Sidmouth, 'no waiting at any times' restrictions have been proposed for specified lengths of Ashley Crescent, The Esplanade, Malden Road, Pathwhorlands, Primley Mead, Seafield Road and The Grove. HATOC will also consider a proposal for a 'no loading at any time' zone and 'buses only 8am-5pm max stay one hour no return within one hour' on separate sections of The Esplanade,

Agenda papers for the HATOC meeting said the restrictions are proposed to avoid 'danger to persons or other traffic using the road' or to prevent the 'likelihood of any such danger arising'.
