EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order extends to Fife Council, arrangements for enforcing parking controls already available in London and certain other areas in England and in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth and Kinross, Aberdeen, Dundee, South Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire, East Ayrshire and South Ayrshire. A similar Order has been laid before the Scottish Parliament in relation to East Renfrewshire Council, and is due to come into force on 2nd April 2013.

This Order designates Fife local government area (with specified exceptions) as a permitted parking area and as a special parking area in accordance with Schedule 3 to the Road Traffic Act 1991 (“the 1991 Act”). The Order applies, to the designated area, various provisions of the 1991 Act and modifies them where necessary. It also makes consequential modifications to certain provisions of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 (“the 1984 Act”) dealing with parking and related matters.

While the Order is in force, certain specified offences will be decriminalised: for example, in the case of the permitted parking area, breaches of orders relating to free on‑street parking places and in the case of the special parking area, breaches of orders prohibiting or restricting waiting, loading and unloading.

Enforcement will be carried out by parking attendants provided under section 63A of the 1984 Act. A system of parking adjudicators will deal with disputes.
