Pavement Parking Survey

Will plans to tackle parking on pavements make a difference to you?

The Scottish Parliament’s Local Government and Regeneration Committee wants to hear from people across Scotland as it begins its examination of the Footway Parking and Double Parking (Scotland) Bill.

The Bill aims to make it illegal to park on pavements in a bid to keep streets safer by stopping pedestrians – especially those with mobility or visual impairments, or with pushchairs – being forced onto the road to avoid parked cars.

The Committee is now asking for people to share their experiences of this type of parking within their community. Are members of the public regularly forced off the pavement or blocked from using dropped kerbs by parked cars? Are there any circumstances in which the Bill should allow this sort of parking in certain situations or areas of the community?

There is an online survey to capture views and experiences and you can also send written submissions to the Committee. 

Please note the closing date is 30 October 2015.

For further information and to access details of the online survey and process for sending written submissions, visit the Scottish Parliament website.
