The first stage of a plan make motorists pay to park almost everywhere in Stornoway town centre is underway.

Less free parking spaces will be available with the council consulting on introducing charges in different areas.

Spaces by the Caledonian Hotel would cost 50p for one hour, double that for up to eight hours and £1.50 for the maximum stay of 24 hours.

Parking at the Star Inn on South Beach Street is set to be £1 with cars having to leave within 60 minutes.

The fee for the Fisherman’s car park is 50p for one hour, £1 for two hours and £1.50 for the maximum stay of three hours.

Charges for the existing pay and display spaces in the Perceval Square car park would be the same as the Fisherman’s car park.

The council is also considering charging for parking in South Beach car park in front of the town hall and at the Lewis sports centre

Other suggestions may be explored as part of the Comhairle's target to take in an extra £30,000.
