Proposed parking restrictions for Kings Place, Portobello

Posted on: May 21st, 2018

City of Edinburgh Council propose to introduce of waiting restrictions to Kings Place (incl the car park at foot of Kings Road). Currently the car park is routinely filled with caravans, motorhomes and the cars of staff working in nearby garages. As such it is not really available for use by visitors to Portobello Beach. It is proposed to introduce waiting restrictions of maximum 3 hours parking, with no return within 2 hours, to address this.



In accordance with the terms of the Local Authorities’ Traffic Orders (Procedure) (Scotland) Regulations 1999, I write to inform you that the City of Edinburgh Council proposes to promote an order which will introduce waiting restrictions at the above location.

The proposals are shown on the attached plan.

Formal objections are not invited at this stage, as a further period will be allowed for the submission of objections when the proposals are formally advertised. It is intended to advertise the proposals at an early date and I should welcome any comments you may have to offer within 3 weeks of the date of this letter (16 May 2018).
