He has responded positively as follows :
“As per your earlier request we have looked at the Union Place vicinity and are proposing to proceed with four marked Disabled Parking places / spaces within the two DCC managed off street car parks on Union Place (two in each car park). No on street spaces can be provided, however the off street provision should assist local residents’ requirements.
I will arrange for the Car Park team to have the markings to be updated, this will be early in financial year 2011/12. I understand that no additional orders are necessary as the off street parking orders allow for this provision.”
The original intention had been to ensure full dropped kerbing on Perth Road on the north side between Duncan of Jordanstone and Sinderins but the good news is that the south side will now see improvements too. To quote an update from the City Council to me today :
“Dropped kerb access will be available on both footways between Sinderins and West Marketgait once the contract is complete either by the end of March or very early into the new financial year.
This has become possible due to available funding achieved through efficiencies work methods.”
