Temporary measures, including street closures, parking restrictions and speed limits were put in place in Stirling City Centre and Bridge of Allan on Monday, 29 June to ensure social distancing and safe pedestrian access to shops with the re-opening of non-essential businesses.
Parking restrictions in Bridge of Allan were lifted following feedback from residents and businesses.
The initial measures in both Stirling City Centre and Bridge of Allan were implemented through Emergency Traffic Regulation Notices. The first ran from 29 June to 20 July, and a second order extended the same measures from 20 July until 9 August.
Emergency Traffic Regulation Notices can stay in place for a maximum of 21 days and can only be extended once.
To ensure continued public safety while social distancing rules remain in force, a new Covid-19 Public Safety Temporary Traffic Regulation Order will be put in place from 9 August to continue these existing temporary measures for up to a period of 18 months.
