Parking on corners is unfortunately not an unusual sight in North Kelvin.
How do we make our community a safer place to walk, park and drive?

    Do not feel proposed parking controls will help.Just because we will have to pay for a permit does not mean we can park right outside our property(which has always been the case).I did not work regular hours and always managed to get parked and find that no different now.The meters that are going to be put in to allow people to pay to park that don’t live in the area will be an eyesore in what is termed a Conservation Area.At one of the recent exhibitions I mentioned that Traffic Wardens are never or extremely rarely in our area -Oban/Fergus Drive and the Council representative basically admitted that the Wardens are usually sent to the areas which already have Parking Controls because it is easier to catch offenders!This is just another money making scheme by the Council and as it is we see very little for our Council Tax so will the money actually be spent on much needed road repairs or gritters on the road in bad weather(which never happens on our street.
