Footway parking and double parking - a consultation

The Scottish Government's consultation on footway parking and double parking closes on Friday.   The consultation document can be downloaded here.

As the issue of parking on pavements and across dropped kerbing is a subject of many constituent complaints, I have already submitted a response.

It takes only a few minutes to do so and I would urge any West End resident with views on this to submit a response - you can do this here.

I raised this matter at the council's City Development Committee last night.   It was suggested that the consultation may be being extended to 31st August.   However, as the Scottish Government website still indicates a 30th June deadline, I would urge people wishing to respond to do so as soon as possible.
