I think you will find that most if not all Councils have clamped down on street parking in recent years.

Partly as a means to ensure access for emergency vehicles but mostly as an income generator.

Sidmouth is especially problematic because of the preponderance of narrow streets and roads.

An all the year round one way system would help and also allow more kerbside parking but Councils do not necessarily go for the sensible option.

It will not be too long under the current government with its cut backs on Council funding or a future Labour government (ho ho) with its dislike of private transport before just owning a car even if kept off road will attract local taxation.

You read it first here!
