Newton Mearns Waiting & Loading restrictions review

East Renfrewshire Council is now reviewing the parking restrictions in Newton Mearns

Newton Mearns is a diverse and growing town. Roads in the area provide a range of operations from main arterial routes providing access to the M77 to single track farm roads. The transportation infrastructure must provide for the safe and efficient movement of traffic while catering to the varied needs of businesses, shoppers, residents, and visitors.

These sometimes competing demands can come to a head when managing on-street waiting and loading (parking) restrictions. A review of the parking restrictions across Newton Mearns is currently underway.


A preliminary step of the review was carried out in Spring 2017. The feedback received from the informal consultation has been processed and used to help develop final proposals.

We have now started a formal consultation on proposals for Newton Mearns. A formal consultation is a statutory requirement for the promotion of any new Traffic Regulation Order to introduce new waiting and loading restrictions.

Consultation documents

The following PDFs are now presented for information consultation:

Paper copies of the Statement of Reason, draft Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) and the associated plans showing the restrictions proposed can also be viewed at Mearns Library until 3 February 2018 during opening hours and at the Council Offices in Eastwood Park, Giffnock during normal office hours.

Consultation feedback

Any person wishing to object or make a representation on the proposals can do so either by email to or in writing to:

Chief Officer Legal and Procurement, East Renfrewshire Council Headquarters, Rouken Glen Road, Giffnock G46 6UG

Anyone wishing to submit an objections or representation on the proposals must do so by 3 February 2018. You must state the name and address of the objector, the matters to which they relate and the grounds on which they are made.

Objections and representations received by this date will be carefully considered and where appropriate, suitable amendments may be made to the proposals.
