The reporter, Patrick Hetherington, will weigh the evidence and make his report to the council in the near future.
Local councillor Jim Sharkey called for 2 permits for those households and businesses that require them. He said...
"Having listened to all the evidence I am convinced that working families will be penalised unless the council is prepared to move on the issue of 2 free permits to each of the residents and I feel a powerful case was made by the local businesses to have the same. I am especially pleased that the council is going to make the disabled parking spaces mandatory. That upgrades the provision for disabled people in the area and I welcome that."
Local activist Rayleen Kelly said...
"I’m glad that the Labour councillors are agreeing with my campaign to have more than one permit and that the permit must be free and I hope that the issue of visitors’ parking will be similarly considered. I am more worried about the former transport spokesperson of the SNP’s involvement in case he revives his 1997 plan to charge £10 for the residents’ permits."

At a meeting last week a few of my ex constituents mentioned that they read my blog and asked how Molly and Bessie were getting on, so I decided to take a few more photos of the girls and post them.
The above is Molly on the couch taking up as much room as possible, she has been known to kick you off the couch if you start to get into her space.
