S5W-13849: Alex Cole-Hamilton (Edinburgh Western)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 12 January 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what progress it is making regarding introducing legislation to ban parking on pavements.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 23 January 2018

We launched a consultation in 2017 entitled “Improving Parking in Scotland” which sought views on how parking is currently managed and enforced across the country. The responses are currently being analysed to inform our policy on how best to manage and enforce parking in Scotland, and will help develop provisions for the Scottish Government’s Miscellaneous Transport Bill. The Bill and supporting guidance will then be presented for consideration by the Scottish Parliament in this Parliamentary session.
