Car Parking Permit SchemeThe Council aims to provide a strong civic leadership role for the promotion of a modern, safe, accessible and integrated transportation system for the borough. The role of parking in contributing to the success of an area recognises the need for a balanced and holistic approach. In conjunction with our Parking Strategy this scheme will ensure that parking supports the local economy by facilitating shopping, tourism and local businesses while at the same time considering the needs of local residents. The Car Parking Permit scheme aims to determine the process whereby the varying needs of locals who live near Townhead Street and East Strand car parks, can be aligned with our Parking Strategy to create a seamless process, which can be effectively monitored and where necessary enforced in a clear and structured way.
