Opinions are sought for parking enforcement arrangements in various Skye locations.

Highland Council say they want to hear from the public on Draft Traffic Regulation Orders for the further roll out of Decriminalised Parking Enforcement (DPE).

The Skye and Lochalsh locations include Broadford, Dunvegan, Kyle of Lochalsh, Kyleakin, Portree, Sligachan and Storr.

Decriminalised Parking Enforcement allows responsibility for enforcing parking, waiting and loading regulations to be transferred from Police Scotland to The Highland Council. Police Scotland are still responsible for reportable traffic offences on all roads, such as dangerous parking or obstruction.

These Draft Traffic Regulation Orders will enable all existing prohibitions and restrictions on waiting and loading currently in place in the above locations to be made into new map-based Traffic Regulation Orders.

The majority of the existing prohibitions and restrictions remain in place, however necessary provisions in respect of civil enforcement under the 1991 Act have been added to the proposed Order. On-street parking, waiting and loading prohibitions and restrictions are also being introduced to some additional lengths of roads and there are some minor localised alterations to existing restrictions. The locations and lengths of road affected for each of the above can be inspected as detailed at www.highland.gov.uk/parking see ‘Traffic Order Consultations.'

The public have until Friday 15 February 2019 to submit any objections in writing to The Legal Manager, The Highland Council, Glenurquhart Road, Inverness IV3 5NX
