Exeter City Council plans to increase parking prices in some car parks in the city.
The Labour-controlled council said it needed to raise charges to keep council tax low.
Nine car parks could have charges increased, including the one at Haven Banks. But some car parks will remain unchanged and others would have lower tariffs.
Councils in Devon made more than £14m in parking charges in 2012 and Exeter topped the list, according to the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM).
