Closed roads consultations


Cumbernauld Village parking engagement

We’re asking the Cumbernauld Village community to share their views about parking in the local area.

Cumbernauld Village is a busy community, with a great mix of residential areas, shops, businesses and community facilities, all of which place a demand on local parking. We want to know what is and isn’t working, so we can develop solutions and make improvements to the areas identified.

We want to hear about your parking experiences within the area, which might include:

  • Challenges parking near your home: for example, a lack of resident-only on-street parking, overuse of residential parking by shoppers, visitors, or workers, presence of abandoned vehicles on residential streets, parking on pavements, lack of enforcement, unclear road markings and signage, or a lack of parking for visitors, trades or carers.
  • Challenges parking near shops and businesses: for example, not enough parking for employees, lack of parking for customers, parking times not meeting the needs of customers, not enough restrictions on parking times, permitting a better customer turnover, lack of disabled parking bays, lack of proper loading spaces, unclear parking signage.
  • Challenges parking near community facilities: for example, not enough parking near doctors, dentists and other healthcare services, too many cars parked around schools at pick-up/drop-off times, limited parking near leisure facilities.

As part of understanding how parking could be improved in the future, we also want to hear your ideas for how road space could be used differently. 

We are not proposing any changes at this stage. The purpose of this engagement is to identify whether there are parking issues within the area that need to be addressed. The community will be formally consulted should any changes be proposed, at a later date.


From Monday 17 April 2023 to Monday 22 May 2023, we are inviting you to share your feedback with us about parking issues in Cumbernauld Village.

You can respond by completing the online survey below:

Your feedback will help us better understand parking needs in Cumbernauld Village and shape any future proposals.

In addition to the survey, we will also be holding three virtual drop-in sessions, where you will be able to book a 15-minute time slot to speak with the project team and share your thoughts and ideas. The dates of these sessions are:

  • Tuesday 2 May 2023 between 11am and 2pm
  • Wednesday 3 May 2023 between 5pm and 8pm
  • Thursday 4 May 2023 between 9am and 12pm

If you are interested in registering for a time slot, please visit Eventbrite.

People who live together, families, members of staff and community group members can be present on a call together.

If you have any questions, or are having any trouble participating in the consultation please email or call 01236 222360, where a member of our staff will get back to you as soon as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

About the project

What is the purpose of this consultation?

The purpose of this consultation is to find out what is and isn’t working, with the aim of developing solutions which may feed into formal proposals at a later date.

Are there any existing proposals?

There are currently no formal parking proposals for the Cumbernauld Village area. The purpose of this consultation activity is to identify key issues and areas for improvement, which may be developed into formal proposals at a later date.

Why have you decided to engage on parking in Cumbernauld Village?

Through correspondence from the community and an understanding of the area, we have identified that there may be a number of parking-related issues in Cumbernauld Village.

These issues include:

  • Lack of residential parking provision in areas such as Main Street.
  • Insufficient parking and parking controls surrounding shops and businesses, leading to a lower turnover of customers.

The consultation is designed to capture all of the existing parking issues in the area and improve our understanding of local priorities, which may be used to develop formal proposals at a later date.

This consultation also looks at street space reallocation, in the event that parking is moved or removed in the future.

I don’t drive, how will any future proposals benefit me?

Though this consultation largely looks at issues and ideas surrounding parking, we are also interested in ideas for how spaces might be reallocated in the event that parking is relocated or removed in the future.
