LINLITHGOW is to become the first town in West Lothian to run a trial parking scheme in one of its most congested areas.

Residents have complained for years about commuters parking all day on Clarendon Road and Clarendon Crescent when the car park at the train station is full.

But this week West Lothian Council decided to put in place a 12-month experimental scheme introducing a yellow line controlled zone in the area from 10am-11am on Monday to Friday, restricting everyone apart from those with a resident permit. The move marked a swift turnaround after similar plans were shelved last April by the council executive who asked for more research to be done on the scheme.
