Car Parking Warning Notices But Be Assured MobiLe Traffic Officers Will Hit Harder
14th May 2019
Parking Enforcement is coming to a street near you
With the Decriminalisation of Parking Enforcement, and establishment of the Highland Council Parking Services in 2016, the local authority has committed to the roll-out of enforcement activities across all population centres in Highland.
2016 saw delivery in Inverness and Fort William and all Off Street Car Parks.
Today (Tuesday 14 May 2019) phase two of the rollout sees enforcement delivered in a further 19 locations: roads containing on-street parking, waiting and loading prohibitions and restrictions within Alness, Brora, Broadford, Dingwall, Dunvegan, Grantown On Spey, Invergordon, Inverness, Kyle of Lochalsh, Kyleakin, Mallaig, Nairn, Portree, Scrabster, Sligachan , Storr, Tain, Thurso, Ullapool and Wick.
Mobile Officers have begun patrolling these townships on a random basis and are operating from bases in Fort William, Skye and Inverness.
Officers will initially be issuing warning notices to all vehicles in contravention for a two week period but will issue full Penalty Charge Notices where they deem appropriate.
Officers will also be collating local information on signing and lining to ensure that any corrections required are delivered timelessly to allow full enforcement.
