We are currently undertaking the development and introduction of significant parking control schemes throughout the Glasgow area. One of which includes the Dennistoun and Royston areas.
The close proximity of these areas to the City Centre, Glasgow Royal Infirmary (GRI) and CityPark Glasgow has resulted in intrusive commuter parking which prevents residents from parking near to their homes. This has also impacted visitors, carers, local businesses, deliveries, trades people and road safety with intrusive, indiscriminate and obstructive practices commonplace.
The introduction of parking controls offers an effective solution towards managing the demand for the finite road space available through the prevention of all day commuter parking. Subsequently reducing the overall volume of traffic attracted to the area, whilst also increasing the turnover of parking spaces and improving road safety and traffic flow. Parking controls similarly ensure the essential access required for emergency service vehicles, refuse collection and delivery vehicles.
The Council is now progressing to the statutory traffic order process for the Dennistoun and Royston scheme. Prior to the commencement of this process, the Council is holding a public exhibition in both Dennistoun Library and Royston Library. Council officers will be in attendance on the following dates and will be happy to answer queries or concerns and discuss the proposals that have been developed.
Please see below the Plans, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and a copy of the letter sent to all affected addresses within the proposed zone.
