Developing Dunblane’s Community Parking Management Plan (CPMP)
We asked for your views on parking issues in Dunblane, to inform Dunblane’s Community Parking Management Plan (CPMP). We were interested in Dunblane's Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ), which is the zone in the city where on-street parking is controlled (see also Stirling Council's Parking Policy for more information).
We held a public consultation, comprising of both an online and paper questionnaire, in the Victoria Hall on 11th September 2018, before the closure of the consultation period on 28th September 2018. We also commissioned an independent parking survey. Based on the views and opinions of those we consulted with, and on the evidence we gathered, we developed initial parking proposals for Dunblane.
We presented our initial proposals to the Dunblane Parking Steering Group on 4th December 2018, and based on their feedback we comprehensively reviewed and revised the initial proposals for on- and off-street parking.
We then developed three further proposals which we presented to the Dunblane Parking Steering Group on 25th February 2019. We also held a public consultation in the Victoria Hall on 26th February 2019 and subsequently revised the parking proposals, based on the feedback that we had received, as well as further discussions with members of the Steering Group.
We then presented the proposals to the Environment and Housing Committee meeting, which was held on 11th April 2018. The Committee approved the proposed Dunblane CPMP and authorised us to proceed with the associated Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) work to implement the first phase of the Dunblane CPMP.
There will be further opportunity for you to comment during the statutory three-week consultation on this Traffic Regulation Order. We will ensure that this consultation is also widely advertised.
