Visitors to Arrochar and Luss are being urged to park responsibly this weekend, following last weekend when 86 Penalty Charge Notices were served.

The majority of the notices were for vehicles parked where they clearly should not be ie in disabled parking spaces, in places reserved for coaches or outwith bays.

Parking management is there to keep traffic flowing and to give as many people as possible the chance to use facilities – whether shops or countryside – safely. Inconsiderate parking is hindering traffic flow in both Luss and Arrochar, and problems are being caused in Luss by cars and campervans taking up space reserved for coaches.

Councillor Robin Currie, Policy Lead for Housing, Roads and Infrastructure Services, said: “We understand that, after lockdown, people want to get out and enjoy the countryside again. That’s great and we’re happy to welcome you. We would ask that care is taken with the communities you visit.

“The number of notices served last weekend shows the worrying extent irresponsible parking has reached. I would add that parking in spaces reserved for disabled people is completely unacceptable and we will continue to enforce PCNs on inconsiderate parking where necessary.

“If a car park is full, please, please do not park carelessly. Turn around and come back another time. This will all be waiting for you at a later date.”
