A RESIDENTS' parking scheme in Dunfermline's Rolland Street, Kirklands and Reid Street has been given the green light.

Members of the City of Dunfermline area committee agreed to the measure at their meeting on Tuesday.

The decision will lead to the introduction of the scheme and a two-hour parking limit for non-permit holders between 8am and 6pm, Monday to Friday. One objection had been received, however, councillors agreed to set it aside.

Committee convener Councillor Helen Law said they had taken everyone's comments on board, including the objection.

"We believe that this new scheme and the two-hour parking limit will increase the availability of spaces for residents with permits because commuters who need to park for longer won’t be able to park in these streets," she added.
