Less free parking spaces will be available in Stornoway town centre from Monday.

For the first time charges will apply in the Fisherman’s car park and on South Beach Street.

The move has cost around £12,500 to introduce but is expected to provide £71,000 annually to the council.

Free parking in front of the Star Inn will be abolished this weekend. The cost is £1 with vehicles having to leave within 60 minutes. There is no return allowed within two hours.

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

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

The same prices will apply at the existing pay and display spaces in the Perceval Square car park.

Parking is free after 6pm until 9am the following morning and on Sundays. There is no charge for Christmas Day or Boxing Day nor on 1st and 2nd January.

The parking machines will take the new 12-sided pound coins rather than the round version which is being withdrawn from use.
