During the event weekend, a number of safety and traffic management measures will be put in place to limit vehicular access around Paignton Seafront, Preston Seafront and the surrounding residential areas. These restrictions will also ensure emergency service vehicles can still access all areas, and to ensure minimum disruption is caused to residents by visitors to the Airshow.

Residents and local businesses affected by road closures and parking suspensions will receive a letter and relevant passes in due course and details will be available on this website.
