Parking Enforcement will phase back in from Monday 29 June

Parking Enforcement will phase back in from Monday 29 June. Parking attendants will initially focus their attention on critical areas including: junctions, disabled bays and known hot spots where inconsiderate and illegal parking can cause serious disruption. Normal enforcement duties, including on and off-street pay and display car parks, will restart on Monday 6 July.

To help keep everyone safe, plans are in place to ensure that ticket machines across South Ayrshire are cleaned and disinfected regularly. However, if you are worried about using parking machines you can download the cashless parking app, RingGo, which allows you to pay for parking without the need for coins and from the comfort of your car. To register all you need is a payment card and a smartphone or computer.

Key workers' parking permits for on and off street Council parking bays will remain valid at the moment.

Councillor Ian Cochrane, Portfolio Holder for Environment said: "I'd like to thank Parking Attendants who while unable to carry out their enforcement roles, have volunteered to help in communities during this pandemic. With further easing of Scottish Government restrictions, our priority is to keep the public safe when they are out and about on our roads.   

"Parking Attendants will initially focus on critical areas to ensure that roads are safe, and blue badge holders have appropriate access to services and shops, when they resume their duties on Monday 29 June."

"We know that even as we emerge from this pandemic, key workers are still performing critical roles. Therefore, all key worker parking permits will remain valid at the moment to ensure they can continue to park without issue."
