Signs are to be put up enforcing a ban on parking at a reversing point in a narrow Rothesay street.

The bay in question is located in Gowanfield Terrace, a quiet residential cul-de-sac which provides the only direct vehicular access to St Andrew’s Primary School and where, due to parked cars, there is only room for one lane of moving vehicles.

Bute Community Council was told this week of a recent occasion when a van parked in the reversing bay, yet police were unable to take enforcement action because there is no sign explicitly banning parking in the turning point.

Inspector Gordon Anderson from Police Scotland said that following discussions with Argyll and Bute Council’s local roads officer Iain Thomson, signage would soon be put up to rectify the situation.

Normal on-street parking will continue to be allowed along the rest of Gowanfield Terrace.
