Greenock parking consultation starts Monday 26 August

Friday 23 August 2019

Greenock residents are being given the chance to have their say on whether or not drivers should have to display a parking disc in the town centre.

The five week consultation starts on Monday 26 August and finishes on Friday 27 September. Parking discs are used by drivers to show what time they arrived in the ‘disc zone’.

Currently drivers can be given a penalty charge notice for not displaying a parking disc even if they have observed all the other local parking regulations.

Councillor Michael McCormick, Convener of Inverclyde Council’s Environment & Regeneration Committee, said, “We’re keen to hear what people think about the parking disc system. It’s been suggested that it doesn’t work very well and we’d like to know if the local community, local residents and visitors agree with that view.”

There is no intention to change the existing parking restrictions and any driver who parks for longer than is allowed could still receive a penalty charge notice.

The council is inviting people to have their say online at: www.inverclyde.gov.uk/yoursay

Paper copies of the consultation are also available at Greenock Central Library, Wallace Place, Greenock PA15 1JB.
