Enforcement of New Parking/Loading/Unloading Regulations

New parking/loading/unloading arrangements will come into effect on 2 March 2015 in the immediate area north of the Iona/Pilrig Street junction of Leith Walk in which footway and carriageway renewal work has recently been completed.

The new arrangements, part of the Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) approved for Pilrig Street to the Foot of the Walk, allow for the loading and unloading of goods and also provide opportunities for customer parking for up to one hour. These new arrangements are:

Parking Bay Regulations Loading Bay Regulations
60 Minutes limit – No return within 90 minutes No stopping except for loading and Blue Badge Holders
Mon-Fri 7:30am-6:30pm Mon-Fri 7:30am-6:30pm
Saturday 8:30am-6:30pm Saturday 8:30am-6:30pm
Blue Badge Holders – No Limit
Saturday 1:30pm-6:30pm Parking Permitted in Loading Bay

60 minutes limit – No return within 90 minutes

A phased approach to the implementation of the new arrangements will be adopted. During the week commencing Monday 2 March, if a vehicle is found to be parked in a way that would breach the new arrangements, a warning notice will be issued to the owner/driver. From Monday 9 March, drivers found to be misusing the bays will be issued with a Penalty Charge Notice and their vehicle may be removed.

Please note that in this section, a deliberate 0·5 metre space has been designed in between the parking bay and the cycle lane to allow for vehicle doors to be opened without affecting cyclists using the lane. When parking, please ensure vehicles leave this space free and do not encroach onto the cycle lane as this will also incur a Penalty Charge Notice and possible vehicle removal. For your information, this new layout is shown below:
