We have submitted the following response to Falkirk Council:
THE FALKIRK COUNCIL (RESTRICTION ON WAITING AND PARKING PLACES) (FOUNDRY LOAN, LARBERT) (AMENDMENT NO.9) (TRO 14/036) ORDER 2014
We write in relation to the above Order which seeks to address the parking and safety issues on Foundry Loan.
The Community Council has received a considerable volume of representation from local residents on this. The majority of residents who have contacted us are in favour of the double yellow lines and welcome them, as does the Community Council.
There are a few observations that have been made by residents to us in relation to the Order. One of the main observations made by some residents is that the double yellow lines may force parking into the surrounding side streets/estates with the potential result that similar inconsiderate parking occurs. We are also aware of proposals for parking charges at the station which if implemented may also exacerbate the on-street parking situation. We have received comments over the requirement to increase capacity at the main Foundry Loan car park. Some suggestions have been made to the Community Council that a second floor of parking could be considered as a solution or that the under-utilised bus turning circle could be turned into additional parking.
In conclusion, however, we are in favour of the proposed waiting restrictions being put in place in the interests of road safety.
Should you have any queries in relation to this response, please let us know.
Yours faithfully Etc.”
