Double yellow lines to deter poor parking at new shops on Fife street
Double yellow lines are set to be introduced to a newly regenerated area of Inverkeithing amid complaints of inconsiderate parking.
The Fraser Avenue area of the town is being reimagined with new-build homes and shopping facilities.
Part of this has seen new shops built at the junction of Gray Place and Craigleith Avenue.
However, while the community has welcomed the facilities - including a convenience store, takeaway and bakers - their popularity has led to motorists parking on the surrounding streets, including Hillend Road, in order to access them.
Council transportation chief, Ken Gourlay, said in a report to councillors that drivers were parking on pavements, hindering pedestrian safety.
To combat this, and promote responsible parking, the South and West Fife area committee has agreed to a request from officers to introduce double yellow line "no waiting" restrictions at Gray Place, Craigleith Avenue and Hillend Road.
Other temporary restrictions introduced at Spittalfield Road and Spencerfield Road during redevelopment of the estate will be made permanent.
