Car parking is a hot topic in Kirkcaldy town centre and the Council’s Kirkcaldy Area Committee has been listening.
Local Councillors have been working with the Council’s Transportation Services to explore car parking options for the town and have decided to pilot a new, discounted all day parking season ticket.
The discounted season ticket costs £60 a quarter which works out at £20 a month – less than £1 a day for all day parking.
The discounted tickets go on sale from today, Tuesday 1 October and the trial will run until 10 April 2020.
Applying for the season ticket is quick and easy – to pay by cheque, download and complete the form at www.fife.gov.uk/carparkseasonticket.
Alternatively call 03451 55 55 55 ex 480208 between 9am and 4pm.
Your ticket will be posted out to you or you can collect it from the Town House.
The trial will help inform a wider review of parking in the town so Fife Council is keen to gather feedback on both the season tickets and other parking options.
Launching the scheme, Councillor Neil Crooks, convener of the Kirkcaldy Area Committee said: “Car parking charges feature highly in the feedback from town centre businesses and the public. Fife Council wants to put car parking budgets in the hands of the Local Area Committees and Kirkcaldy was chosen to pilot the approach.
“The discounted season ticket will benefit those who work in the town centre, students and regular visitors, Buying your ticket will give you cheaper parking and direct access to the heart of the town.
“We’re continuing to look at other car-parking initiatives which we can test and hope to be able to launch these in the coming months.”
