Off-street car parks

Information on Council operated car parks.

Not all car parks in East Renfrewshire are the responsibility of East Renfrewshire Council. East Renfrewshire has an additional mixture of private, housing, and Barrhead Foundry operated car parks. The map only shows the Roads Service operated car parks.

Parking within East Renfrewshire Council Roads Service controlled off-street car parks is free 24 hours a day. However, a penalty charge notice (PCN) may be given for the following reasons:

  • Parking outwith a bay.
  • Parking in a disabled person's bay without properly displaying a valid Blue Badge.
  • Parking for more than 24 consecutive hours.
  • Unauthorised commercial activities.

The previous Traffic Regulation Order and maps with the locations of each of the controlled car parks can be found on this page:

Please note, the above Order is to be revoked and will be replaced with the New Order given below.

New Off-Street Traffic Regulation Order

East Renfrewshire Council (Off-Street Parking Places) Order 2017

 At its meeting on 26 January 2017 the Cabinet (a committee of the Council) agreed to recommend:

  1. That the Council do not proceed with the introduction of off street parking charges; and
  2. That the Director of Environment brings forward a report to the Council to make and confirm the East Renfrewshire (Off-Street Parking Places) Order in part, in order to introduce or amend Controlling Regulations within Council car park

The Council at its meeting on 9 February 2017 accepted this recommendation. A further report was prepared for the full Council meeting on 22 March. At that meeting, the Council resolved to make that part of the Order relating to the Controlling Regulations. This Order does not include any provision to introduce Car Parking charges. The pdf icon Off Street TRO 2017 (Made Order) [274kb] was made on 5 April 2017 and comes into operation on 19 May 2017. Those locations included in the made Order can be found in thepdf icon Car Park location plans [3Mb].

The Controlling Regulations enable effective enforcement of essential controls necessary to facilitate the safe and efficient operation of the car parks. Issues such as parking out with marked bays, trading from within the car parks, regulating the types of vehicle permitted to park, parking of mobile homes etc. continue to be covered under the regulations and can therefore be enforced by the Council's Parking Attendants.

Details including where to view paper copies of the Order with accompanying plans or how to make application to the Court of Session can be found in the pdf icon Public Notice (Made Order) [85kb].

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this process.
