Aberdeenshire Council reviewing on street parking decriminalisation
Views which could ultimately see the decriminalisation of on-street parking are being sought by Aberdeenshire Council.
The local authority is carrying out a review on the future of town centre car parking.
Aberdeenshire Council is considering taking responsibility for enforcement away from the police.
Peter Argyle, chairman of the council's infrastructure services committee, said: "Effective car parking is a critical element in ensuring that our towns are economically successful and deliver real benefits for those they serve.
"This consultation will help us to establish a range of facts, including how people currently park in town centres, what influences them in their parking choices and their views on any potential decriminalisation of parking across Aberdeenshire."
