Over recent months residents in the Yorkhill & Kelvingrove area have been in contact asking for changes to the parking restrictions.
As ‘Dippy’ has highlighted, our area is growing in popularity with the number of events and exhibitions increasing. As a Community Council we fully support these events as they bring vibrancy to our community, helping to support our local businesses. However, we also realise the effect they can have on our residents.
Six months ago we changed the parking restrictions in St Vincent Crescent/Minerva St/Minerva Way/Corunna St to a more stringent approach. Whilst not a perfect solution they do appear to be working. The restrictions for these streets are:
- Monday to Sunday 8am to Midnight
- Max stay 2 hours, no return for 1 hour
We would like to know if Yorkhill and Kelvingrove residents would like the same or a version of these parking controls.
Please note: Event Only & Resident Only restrictions are not possible.
Additionally, we can seek to introduce these controls or a version for the following streets in the Park area which fall under our responsibility:
- Claremont Gardens
- Woodside Place
- Elderslie Street
- Clifton Street
- Newton Place
- Somerset Place
Working with Parkgrove Terrace Lane Residents’ Association we have created a short survey to identify if, & what controls you would like. Please follow the link below to share your views. The survey will be open until 31st May 2019.
Update (22nd March 2019)
Many thanks to everyone who came to last nights meeting, particularly to Andrew Beglin from the City Council’s Parking team who attended. Points raised included:
- Issues within Yorkhill for a number of years around Overnewton Square, Regent Moray St, Blantyre St, Kelvinhaugh St and Gilbert St.
- However, within Dalnair St and closer to the former Yorkhill Hospital site these issues are less pronounced.
- Within the Kelvingrove area all streets are affected.
The following drivers appear to be creating the situation:
- Re-development of Kelvin Hall & Kelvingrove Museum
- Introduction of the SSE Hydro & greater events at the Scottish Events Campus
- Rise of events within Kelvingrove Park
- Increased food & drink services our area offers
Whilst many supported the introduction of new controls some concerns were raised:
- Cost for friends, family, trades & carers visiting
- Cost for those who have to hire cars
- Impact for those small business owners who employees travel by car and need to pay for parking
- The increase in charges at the City Council’s car parks
Next steps, working with Parkgrove Terrace Lane Residents’ Association we have created a short survey to identify if, & what controls you would like. Please follow the link below to share your views. The survey will be open until 31st May 2019.
The results will be shared with Glasgow City Council’s Parking department.
Finally, we would like to remind everyone that if new controls are introduced, there will still be issues, unfortunately ,there are no magic solutions.
