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 now underway.

As the preliminary step of the review has now been carried out the feedback received is now being processed and will be used to help develop final proposals which will be presented in a formal consultation to be undertaken later in the year. The formal consultation is a statutory requirement of the legal process necessary for the promotion of any new Traffic Regulation Order for the introduction of waiting and loading restrictions.

The following PDF's show the pdf icon Newton Mearns Current Restrictions [6Mb] and the pdf icon Newton Mearns Proposed Restrictions [3Mb] as presented in the informal consultation.

Although the informal consultation period is now over, comments received will still be accepted for as long as reasonably possible until such time as the final proposals are drawn up for the formal consultation later in the year. 

These can be sent either by email to or post to:
