Restricted Parking Zone is coming in the autumn

The North Kelvin and North Woodside Restricted Parking Zone (RPZ) will come into operation on 1 November 2021. The works are expected to begin over the summer with an estimated completion date of mid-October. After completion the zone will become live and will be enforced by parking attendants.

Plans showing the proposed parking bays, including disabled bays, electric vehicle charging bays and car club bays, are on the City Council website.
