Parking Provision in Elgin to go to Public Consultation

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Monday December 4 2017

CHANGES to car parking in Elgin were discussed by councillors today and recommendations will now be put out to public consultation.

Under the latest proposals, all council managed car parks will be categorised as high, medium or low turnover, determining the length of stay at each, as well as the parking fee.

The changes, which are aimed at making the best use of parking provision within Elgin, could also see Moray Council manage parking at both Cooper Park and North College Street West, so that enforcement can be carried out by car parking attendants to prevent misuse.

It’s proposed that charges will only apply at Cooper Park between 8am and midday, with the first 30 minutes free of charge.

Drivers who park at Batchen Street multi-storey could see their parking bills reduced to just £1 per day, while those parking for up to 30 minutes at ‘high turnover’ sites, including Moray Street, Ladyhill Road and St Giles levels 5 and 6, will have their parking bill halved to 50p.

All-day parking would not be permitted at high turnover sites, for medium sites a maximum fee of £5 per day could be levied, and £1 for all-day parking at other low turnover sites including Lossie Green and Lossie Wynd.
