Dumfries and Galloway Regional Parking Strategy Consultation
Dumfries and Galloway Regional Parking Strategy
Dumfries and Galloway Council would like your views on parking in the region. This will inform a new Parking Strategy that will set out the vision for parking across the region and will address current issues and challenges Dumfries and Galloway Council is facing with parking control, management, and enforcement.
The Parking Strategy will consider options for Decriminalised Parking Enforcement (DPE) and the potential introduction of parking charges, with reporting to Communities Committee in early 2024 for agreement on the way forward.
Therefore we are encouraging public participation and would welcome your attendance and feedback at a programme of Community Conversations which will present themes such as supply/ demand, parking facilities, enforcement, signage, Transport (Scotland) Act 2019 and parking charges.
As an inclusive Council, we want to listen to your views, concerns, and ideas to ensure these are considered when setting out the aims and objectives in the strategy.
We therefore invite you to attend a Community Conversation on the Dumfries and Galloway Regional Parking Strategy on
Thursday 6th October, between 3pm to 5pm, or between 6 to 8pm in the McMillan Hall Newton Stewart.
This is a drop-in style event so please come any time between 3pm and 5pm, or any time between 6pm and 8pm.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Community Conversation. You will have the opportunity to hear from, and speak with Council Officers from the Roads Service and our partners from Systra. We are consulting with those who live, work and visit our region through Community Conversations that cover all 12 wards, through stakeholder engagement sessions, and an online survey.
You can complete the survey online here https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Dumfriesparking
The survey is open from 9am on Wednesday 20th September, and closes 5pm Wednesday 15th November.
Throughout the survey, ‘D&G’ is used to refer to the region as a whole. This survey should take five to ten minutes to complete, and your answers will be used anonymously for research and reporting purposes only. You can provide responses as an individual or on behalf of an organisation. Hard copies of this survey will be available at the Community Conversations, and also from your local Customer Service Centre, where you can return completed surveys.
