Parking surveys

Parking in Dumbiedykes and Pleasance survey

A consultation on parking in the Dumbiedykes and Pleasance areas has recently closed. We will review your responses and report the findings to a future meeting of the Transport and Environment Committee. You can find out more about the parking proposals around the Dumbiedykes and Pleasance areas.

Residents have told us that since the parking spaces stopped being managed

  • non permit holders have started to park in the spaces during the day
  • you are often not able to park near to your home
  • it feels like traffic has increased
  • you are concerned about parking on corners
  • you feel it is not safe for people to cross the road.

Restricted Parking Zone (RPZ)

Our recommended approach is to introduce an RPZ, which has support from local councillors and the Dumbiedykes residents' association.

Entry signs would show the start of the restricted zone with parking only permitted in marked parking places. While the rest of the street is restricted, there would be no other road markings such as yellow lines. This would prevent all-day commuter parking and include other advantages, such as

  • protect spaces for residents
  • provide more places for your visitors
  • delivery or trades people can park near you
  • improve the look of the street with fewer road markings.
