Carol Ramsay started this petition to South Lanarkshire Council

Throughout South Lanarkshire there are Residents Parking Zones. They are a direct result of selling off the town centre car parks and various methods of car park charges. This causes people to park in the neighbouring streets to avoid the charges, causing additional traffic and congestion in quiet residential streets. 

Until now they were supplied every two year free of charge, coming from the profit from the car parks and the associated fines as they should be. Now the council plan to charge the homes an ‘admin’ fee of £10 per permit. This doesn’t seem a lot but we all know it will increase year on year. In Glasgow they are now £265. In North Lanarkshire they are £60. 

Some might say at a tenner we’re getting a bargain. But there’s a principal...a levy to park at your own home. There’s plans afoot to increase the size of the zones too, once they see that money coming in it is a certainty. By then it will be to late to backtrack.
