Council paves way to new parking
Monday 20th February 2012
A new car park is being created on the former health centre site at Marshill in Alloa.
The car park will open to the public at the end of this month and is will provide free, long term parking as part of the Council's parking strategy for Alloa town centre.
The site is currently being resurfaced, kerbed and lined. You are invited to attend a photo opportunity at the site at 11.30am on Tuesday 21st February with Council Leader Gary Womersley and Councillor Eddie Carrick, Sustainability Portfolio Holder.
Councillor Womersley said: "The availability of parking in Alloa town centre is a critical issue, which is why we are currently spending £65,000 on resurfacing this site to create a new car park. While in the longer term this could be a valuable development area, it will provide free parking facilities for over 100 cars in the immediate future."
Councillor Carrick added: "This car park will provide free parking just a short walk away from the town centre, which should give shoppers more access to short-stay spaces nearer the town centre."
The Council has spent a total of £300,000 acquiring this important site.
