Napiershall Parking Zone is now in operation from Monday 18 April

The Napiershall Controlled Parking Zone is now in operation from Monday 18 April.

The streets in Kelvinbridge affected by the new controls are Napiershall Street, North Woodside Road, South Woodside Road, Lansdowne Crescent, Herbert Street and Holyrood Crescent.

Parking charges in the Napiershall zone will apply Monday to Friday from 8am until 6pm.

Shorter hours in Napiershall were agreed following representations from locals.

Drivers using a parking meter will pay 10p for the first 30 minutes and 10p for every subsequent 10 minutes up to a maximum of three hours.

Permit holders and disabled badge holders are exempt from charges as along as a permit or badge is displayed.

They may also park in a designated space without limit of time.

Residents who are the owner of a vehicle registered at that address will qualify for a parking permit if their property was built or converted before January 1, 2000.

A permit costs £50 a year, £15 a quarter, and multi car households can get a permit for each car.

Residents and hotel owners will be able to buy visitor permits which will come in packs of five with each permit valid for six hours.

Visitors staying longer than six hours can scratch off two consecutive time periods to ensure they are covered.

Permits will be available from the parking shop at 46 Albion Street, in the Merchant City, open from 9am to 4pm Monday to Thursday and until 3.30pm on Fridays, and will cost £2 each. They can be bought in books of five.

Business permits will be available for £700 a year.
