The lack of creative thinking over Dalkeith town centre’s parking woes is “unacceptable” according to community councillors.

The issue has been a hot topic of late, with Midlothian Council admitting that it is at a loss as to how to solve the problem.

As reported in the Advertiser, the issue is being exacerbated by the centralisation of council staff in the town.

Attending a recent meeting of Dalkeith and District Community Council, Councillor Margot Russell came under fire when she explained that the council would be continuing to “monitor the situation”.

She said: “The two pay and display car parks [North Wynd and St Andrew Street] are not paying. When Morrisons opens up and has free three-hour parking that is bound to have a knock-on effect.

“That is how things have been left – monitor the situation at the car parks and see what happens with Morrisons.”
