About Parking

Each of Inverclyde’s towns and villages have a variety of waiting and loading restrictions which are summarised in the links Provided.

Wherever you park it is your responsibility to check the associated signs which advise how long you can park and whether a parking disc or a pay and display ticket is required.

When parking in limited waiting parking bays in Greenock and Gourock ‘Parking Disc Zone’ you must place a parking disc in the windscreen to indicate your arrival time.

Parking discs are widely available free of charge from Council offices and a large number of shops locally. Please be sure to have a parking disc before you park. Parking Attendants will allow a short period of time to allow motorists to access discs, and are always happy to provide them if you approach the officer directly.

It is important to note that it is your arrival time which must be displayed by the disc and that you may receive a PCN for changing the disc arrival time contravening the time permitted to park or if you alter the time of arrival once the original time has expired.
