We operate 30 FREE off-street car parks throughout the Council Area.
They are provided and maintained generally in town centre areas to ensure a safe and sufficient parking amenity to meet the needs of the local community, local economy, businesses and visitors.
The car parking at Clydebank Town Centre is provided & maintained by Clydebank Shopping Centre with approximately 1730 spaces.
It is the policy of the Council not to charge for parking. No parking fines will be issued by the Council, although Police Scotland do have powers to issue penalty fines to irresponsibly parked vehicles.
Areas within some of the car parks have been allocated for disabled persons displaying a blue / orange badge.
A Blue Badge allows you to park free of charge on any designated on-street bay marked for use by disabled persons.
If you have mobility problems you may be eligible for a Blue Badge parking permit.
You can find out more about blue badge parking permits by contacting Social Work or visiting the West Dunbartonshire Community Health and Care partnership webpage.
In order to be eligible for a disabled persons’ parking bay the applicant must:
It should be noted that disabled persons’ parking bays are available for use by any blue badge holder and not just the applicant.
Applicants require to complete an application form and provide documentation as follows:-
On receipt of the completed application form, Roads services will check the completed paperwork. If the application meets all the criteria, a site visit will be carried out to assess the suitability of the location for a disabled parking bay.
The Roads Service will decide whether it is possible to identify a suitable on road parking place from which there is convenient access to the applicant's address. A disabled persons’ parking bay will not be provided where it is deemed such provision would compromise safe and efficient traffic management.
A disabled persons’ parking bay would not be permitted for the following reasons:-
Once the assessment has been completed the applicant will be notified in writing of the outcome. If the bay is approved, arrangements will be made with the line marking contractor to install the bay at the appropriate location.
A Traffic Regulation Order currently exists which enables the existing disabled bays listed in its schedule to become legally enforceable. This is promoted periodically.
We ask applicants that if their circumstances change in the future and the bay is no longer required, they contact West Dunbartonshire Council’s Roads Services as soon as is possible.
