Kilmarnock permit parking scheme

This consultation is now closed. If you have any queries please contact the Traffic Section.

We would like to know if you think a Permit Parking Scheme is needed in Kilmarnock. Such a scheme would reduce on-street parking congestion and improve road safety. The scheme would remove all-day commuter parking, giving residents and local businesses priority to park near their homes or premises.


The scheme would introduce residents/business permit parking bays and/or limited waiting bays in various areas bordering the town centre and would operate Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm.

We would like to know if you think the introduction of such a scheme would be beneficial to your area. Your comments will help us reach a decision on whether or not to commence with the process of promoting a Traffic Regulation Order that would introduce the scheme.

At this stage the scheme is only a proposal and we need your views to help it progress. Permit parking will only be introduced where a majority of all consulted properties in an area respond in favour of a scheme.

The consultation closes on Friday 4 April 2014.
