Local residents are to be asked for their views on a proposed pilot parking scheme near Dundee’s two football grounds.
The city council will ask people who live near Dens Park and Tannadice what they think about a parking permit scheme to replace the current “no waiting” cone system.
Mark Flynn, depute convener of the council’s city development committee, said: “The scheme would only operate on match days or when there is a major event at either stadium and is in response to feedback we’ve had about the current system.
“If residents tell us they like the idea then it would do away with no waiting cones and allow people who live close to the football grounds to come and go, even on match days.
“We’re proposing that a resident’s permit would be free, with a cost for visitors which has yet to be agreed.
“Existing blue badge rules would continue to apply.”
Residents and businesses in the area surrounding Dens and Tannadice – including Sandeman Street, Provost Road, Fleming Gardens, Hindmarsh Avenue and Tannadice Street – are being invited to take part in the consultation.
The proposals will be on display at Fleming Gardens sheltered housing complex from Monday until September 18 when people can give their feedback.
