Council Car Parks
There are 38 car parks within the Stirling Council area. These car parks are either pay and display or free.
The pay and display car parks require the driver to park in a marked bay and to purchase a parking ticket from the ticket machines and display it clearly within the windscreen area of the vehicle. Before leaving the vehicle the driver should ensure it is visible from the outside. An Off Street Traffic Regulation order gives the Council powers to carry out enforcement and issue Excess Charge Notices to any vehicle parked in breach of the displayed confitions of use of the car park, which are displayed on the ticket machines and signs within the car park.
An Excess Charge Notice will be issued for the following reasons:
- Parked without displaying a valid parking ticket
- Parked with an expired parking ticket
- Parked within a disabled bay without displaying the necessary blue badge
- Parked within a residents bay without displaying the necessary residents parking permit
- Parked with an incorrectly displayed parking ticket, eg no expiry details visible
- Parked over two bays
- Parked in excess of permitted time.
