It is the policy of the Council not to charge for parking. No parking fines will be issued by the Council, although Police Scotland do have powers to issue penalty fines to irresponsibly parked vehicles. 

Areas within some of the car parks have been allocated for disabled persons displaying a blue / orange badge.
