Prestonfield CPZ proposal binned

At the meeting of the Transport committee this morning the proposal to impose a controlled parking zone throughout Prestonfield was abandoned. The report (click here and view particularly appendix 5) indicated that the majority of comments were against the proposal but highlighted the pressures in Kilmaurs, Kirkhill and Priestfield. It was agreed that transport officials would look again at this area for any measures which might alleviate the current pressures. A report can be expected in six to eight months on such options.

The main reason for abandoning the proposal was the views from the consultation and doubts that it could be made to be cost neutral. You can read the full report at the link above.
