The event will be held on Tuesday 19th November, 3–8pm, in the Royal Hotel to gather the community’s views on parking issues in they are experiencing in Bridge of Allan and what they feel can be done to alleviate these problems.
The event will also provide an opportunity to learn about the process being undertaken to develop the community parking management plan (CPMP) for Bridge of Allan, and how Stirling Council will be working in partnership with the community throughout this process.
Earlier this year, the Council carried out surveys in Bridge of Allan car parks and certain streets to gather information on the use and capacity of parking in the area.
A Bridge of Allan CPMP Steering Group has already been set up, including representatives from Bridge of Allan Community Council, Stirling Area Access Panel, Local Elected Members and Stirling Council Officers.
Stirling Council’s Chief Operating Officer, Environment and Infrastructure, Brian Roberts said: “The provision and management of parking is a key element of community planning and it is important to get the balance right between providing parking for residents, business and visitors while enhancing our community environment.
“We are keen that the community are fully involved in the process of developing the parking plan for Bridge of Allan and we would encourage residents and business to come along to the event on Tuesday 19th to give their views.”
If anyone is unable to attend, more information and a questionnaire will be available online at www.stirling.gov.uk/bridgeofallanparking between 19th November and 10th December.
