TWO new business permits aimed at making it easier for businesses to park in the Edinburgh are being piloted over the next 18 months.

A new retailers’ permit will allow class 1 retail outlets to purchase two parking permits per outlet.

Under the current scheme they are only allowed one permit per outlet.  The need for vehicle livery will also be removed.

For class 2 business outlets, a maximum of two permits per outlet can now be purchased and a maximum of two vehicles can be registered to each permit. The permit will allow a registered vehicle to park in permit and shared use parking places within their zone.

The proposals will be trialled in extended parking zones (Zones N1 – N5 & S1 – S4). This includes Morningside/Bruntsfield (S1/S2), Stockbridge (N3) & Marchmont (S1)

The new permits will run for a period of 18 months and a review will be undertaken after the scheme has been in place for 6 months to determine whether the pilot has been successful.
