The No Waiting No Loading restrictions on Fergus Drive, between Queen Margaret Drive and Queen Margaret Court, will now only apply between 09:00 and 15:30 after discussions between Westpoint Homes and the local school.

After investigation, the welfare facilities are to be situated on Wilton Street as before. However, Westpoint Homes have been instructed that the temporary traffic lights to be used at this location have to be manned between 07:00 and 19:00 Monday to Friday to manage traffic flow.

Council officers will continue to inspect the location to ensure the restrictions are being followed.

  • How can the safety of the construction workers be compromised by parked cars on Fergus Drive?

  • The parking restrictions coming into force from 13 October in Fergus Drive and several other streets near the building site at the bottom of Fergus Drive highlight the inconvenience that is already affecting people who live locally .Many of those who will now be inconvenienced objected to this new building in the first place due to the blight it will be in what is a conservation area and the added traffic problems that it will cause and is already causing with the daily procession of large trucks etc. coming up Oban Drive and round into Fergus Drive,sadly the objections of the people who will be affected were totally ignored at the time .The building is not even built and already it is affecting the quality of life of those who live nearby.

    Will the parking restrictions include the cars of the construction workers? It’s usually their cars and personal vans that use the coned off area currently.

  • Thanks for your question – we believe workers shouldn’t be parking in the restricted area. We are waiting for council response on whether traffic wardens can monitor this.

  • We are informed that all vehicles must abide by the parking restrictions imposed during the times notified on the Order. This includes the vehicles of the construction/site workers. The Council parking enforcement team has been informed.

    If you notice the restrictions are being abused, please let us know here or via NKcommunitycouncillors@gmail.com.
