How to Apply

    The permit application can be completed electronically, although a MyGov Account may be required to be created for this purpose. Paper copies of the permit application forms will also be available at Hillhead Library from Monday, 9th May 2022 for those who do not have access to the internet.

    The cost of Resident/Business Parking Permits are below:

    • Resident Parking Permits are £85 per annum or £23.75 quarterly.
    • Business Parking Permits are £650 per annum.

    The zone identifier for these parking permits will be W2, which will allow permit holders to park in any parking space signed with a W2 zone identifier without incurring further parking charges.

    The zone extents will be available to view on the Interactive Map which can be accessed by clicking on the link here.

    Remedial works for road markings and signing will continue to be carried out throughout the entire area and this may require localised temporary traffic regulation order (TTRO) restrictions to complete.

    As previously employed throughout the road works programme, yellow information boards and TTRO notices will be erected in advance of these minor works occurring.

    One Way Systems

    New one way systems are also being introduced as part of this scheme to maximise parking capacity and reduce through traffic within the area. These include:-

    • Botanic Crescent - South-eastwards, from Kelvin Drive to Kelvin Drive.
    • Braeside Street - Northwards, from Dalmally Street to Maryhill Road.
    • Garrioch Crescent - Westwards, from Garrioch Road to Garrioch Drive.
    • Garrioch Quadrant - Westwards, from Garrioch Drive to Garrioch Road.
    • Lyndhurst Gardens - Southwards, from Dalmally Street to Wilton Street.
    • Wilton Drive - Northwards, from Wilton Street to Dalmally Street.
    • Wilton Street -   Eastwards, from Yarrow Gardens eastwards for a distance of 37 metres.
      - North-westwards, from Doune Gardens Lane to Wilton Street.
      - South-westwards, from Wilton Street to Yarrow Gardens Lane

    Following discussions with St Charles Primary School regarding the new one way system on Kelvinside Gardens, the Council only recently became aware of an issue the new one way operation would create for buses dropping off vulnerable pupils at this school.  After investigating alternative measures, the only solution in the meantime to prevent this becoming a road safety risk for vulnerable school children would be to abandon the plans to introduce the new one way operation on Kelvinside Gardens and Kelvinside Gardens East.

    As such, these roads will remain two way and letters will soon be issued to all residents within Kelvinside Gardens, Nos. 3-23 Kelvinside Gardens East and Oban Court residents to advise of this change.


    These will only become operational once we have all road marking works completed which are required for the one way roads.


    Full enforcement has now commenced within the zone.

    Parking Permits

    To accommodate any delays with the scheduled go-live date of Monday 8 August, an additional four weeks has been added to all resident and business permits purchased for this zone.  This was applied at the time of application, therefore residents nor businesses require to take any action on this.

    Parking Machines

    Parking machines have not been installed within every road in the new parking zone and this is also the case with the more recent zones introduced within Hyndland, Partick, Dowanhill and Yorkhill.

    Instead, machines have been installed strategically throughout the zone and are currently being programmed.  This assists with reducing the amount of furniture being placed within streets and also taking into account that the majority of paying visitors within Glasgow pay for parking using the RingGo smartphone app.  Providing 29 parking machines throughout the area still offers those that prefer to pay with cash an option for paying to park.

    However, if we receive requests to install additional machines at certain locations within the new zone, this is something that we can investigate.

    All parking machines are currently in the process of being re-painted.
