Parking - zones and permits

Controlled parking zone

Within Stirling City Centre, a controlled parking zone is enforced from Monday - Saturday (inclusive) between 08:45-17:30 (unless otherwise stated).  The Stirling City Parking Guide details parking options within the zone.

Our Park and Ride scheme provides low-cost and frequent access to Stirling City Centre from convenient locations.

Resident parking scheme

We operate a Residents Permit Parking Scheme within the Controlled Parking Zone in:

  • Stirling City Centre
  • Dunblane Town Centre

Permits (£79.00 per year) entitle the holder to park in "residents only" bays and "pay and display" areas within their designated zone, without limit of time and at no additional charge.

The permit does not entitle the holder to park in any other areas including loading bays, bus stops, taxi ranks, disabled spaces, doctor spaces and single or double yellow lines.
