Newton Mearns waiting and loading restrictions review

A review of parking restrictions in Newton Mearns is now complete and a new Traffic Regulation Order has been made to introduce new and amended restrictions in the area.

Newton Mearns is a diverse and growing town. Roads in the area provide a range of operations from main arterial routes providing access to the M77 to single track farm roads. The transportation infrastructure must provide for the safe and efficient movement of traffic while catering to the varied needs of businesses, shoppers, residents, and visitors.

These sometimes competing demands can come to a head when managing on-street waiting and loading (parking) restrictions. A review of the parking restrictions across Newton Mearns is currently underway.

Consultation

A formal consultation on proposed restrictions for the Newton Mearns area was held from 8th December 2017 until 3rd February 2018.  The formal consultation is a statutory requirement for the promotion of any new Traffic Regulation Order to introduce new waiting and loading restrictions.

Introduction of new restrictions

At the meeting of the full Council on Wednesday 28 March 2018 the Elected Members approved the making of a new Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) authorising the introduction of the new and amended restrictions for Newton Mearns.

A further 6 weeks period must be given to allow anyone who wishes to question the validity of the Order or any of its provisions to make representation to the Court of Session. It is not permitted to commence any works related to the installation of signs or markings associated with the Order during this period.

Assuming no such representations are made, after the 6 week period has expired work can then commence on installing any new signs and markings required to reflect the approved restrictions and when all this is complete the restrictions can then be enforced.

It is anticipate therefore that enforcement of the restrictions in this area will commence by the end of June 2018.
