Proposed Traffic Regultion Orders – Parking and Waiting Restrictions

On- Street Waiting Restrictions – Proposed Traffic Regulation Order C132

Off-Street Parking Places – Proposed Traffic Regulation Order C134

As a result of the withdrawal of the Traffic Warden Service by Strathclyde Police and the subsequent deterioration of parking habits, the Inverclyde Council decided to apply to the Scottish Ministers for permission to introduce decriminalised parking enforcement (DPE) within Inverclyde.  This will allow the Council to enforce waiting and loading restrictions under civil law.

In preparation for the introduction of DPE, the Council is promoting these orders which enable the Council’s Parking Attendants to enforce the restrictions in the named car parks and to also enforce on-street waiting and loading restrictions.

As it affects Kilmacolm and QuarriersVillage the proposed on-street traffic order for the most part replicates the restrictions currently visible on-street by way of road markings and traffic signs.

The main change in the proposed off-street parking places traffic order is the introduction of a two hour maximum duration of stay in the main Cargill Centre car park during the hours 08:00-18:00 Monday to Saturday with no return within an hour.

These proposals are available to view in Kilmacolm Library
