Approval has now been given for the proposed Event Day Parking Zone (EDPZ) in streets near to Hampden Stadium which will come into force during relevant, well attended events only.

Parking Controls surrounding Hampden Stadium

Hampden Stadium has been selected to host the Olympic Football games in July and August 2012.

Glasgow's track record and reputation for hosting major events has been reinforced by securing the 2014 Commonwealth Games and the Football competition of the 2012 London Olympic Games.
The Olympic games are expected to attract a large number of spectators, some of whom may try and park as close as they can to Hampden Stadium.
This event day parking zone is designed to prevent spectators parking near Hampden Stadium.

This additional attendance can attract many extra vehicles towards the venue, where, despite alternative parking and transport provisions being put in place, adjacent residential areas seemed to be an easy option for those looking to park for the duration of an event.

For this reason, parking controls have been introduced in nearby streets during relevant events only. Each eligible resident and business will be issued an application form.
Resident's parking permits are FREE for each vehicle the resident has registered at their home address and visitors' parking permits are available at a one-off cost of £10 per permit. Businesses will also be issued free parking permits for each of their employees. During a relevant event, only vehicles which display a valid permit or a disabled person's blue badge will be eligible to park in any of the restricted streets.

This scheme should effectively discourage all other motorists, who may be attending an event at Hampden Stadium, from using the area as a car park to the detriment of road safety and the general amenity of the area.
