Views to be sought over new West Lothian parking restrictions
New waiting restrictions are being proposed at various locations in West Lothian.
Council Executive has approved the start of the statutory process towards installing 29 new waiting restrictions across West Lothian.
Roads and Transportation officers have collated enquiries and requests relating to areas in West Lothian experiencing parking problems, which are considered to have an adverse effect on road safety.
These locations were identified through enquiries received from Elected Members, members of the public and a public petition. Police Scotland have agreed with the proposed locations, following joint visits to inspect if the areas of concern raised would be suitable for waiting restrictions and police enforcement.
