A consultation on possibly introducing residents’ parking permits near Hairmyres and Cambuslang railway stations is underway.

The consultation will gauge the views of all stakeholders on the principle of, and possible geographical extent of, Residents’ Parking Permit Zones (RPPZs) at the two locations. 

Following the analysis of the responses to this preliminary consultation, should the council decide to proceed with the promotion of new RPPZs then a formal, statutory consultation will be undertaken on the proposals.

The consultation is part of a wider review of RPPZs across South Lanarkshire.

All interested parties can take part in the consultation on the Hairmyres proposals by going to: https://tinyurl.com/RPPZ-Hairmyres.

All interested parties can take part in the consultation on the Cambuslang proposals by going to: https://tinyurl.com/RPPZ-Cambuslang.

Questionnaires are best viewed on a desktop device.

Councillor John Anderson, the chair of the council’s Community and Enterprise Resources Committee, said: “We are aware that in many areas parking pressures continue to increase, which is the reason why we decided to review all RPPZs.

“We also recognise that there are significant issues with parking in and around both Hairmyres and Cambuslang railway stations.

“That is why I am encouraging as many people as possible who live in both these areas, or use them, to take part in the surveys.

“Your input into this process is invaluable and will help us to decide the best course of action moving forward.

“As well as the online questionnaire, we will also be consulting with community councils, business groups and other council partners.”

The consultation will run from now until the end of January 2019, a period of eight weeks.
