Parking plan ‘shows lack of ambition’

THE COUNCIL’S planned changes to parking charges in Oban would make the problem worse, argue ‘disappointed’ Oban community councillors, writes Sandy Neil.

Argyll and Bute Council’s consultation on new parking charges closed on Friday. The changes aim to help drivers find a parking space by increasing turnover, help blue badge holders park where they need to, and reduce inconsiderate parking.

The draft new Traffic Regulation Order proposes making the first 30 minutes free on George Street, Corran Esplanade, William Street, Queen’s Park Place and Argyll Square, but also imposing charges on Gallanach Road (sailing club to Brandy Rock) and Ganavan Road (from Glenrigh to War Memorial) 9am to 6pm Monday to Saturday, and 1pm to 6pm Sunday. Charges on all existing on-street pay and display bays will also extend to Sunday afternoons.
