S5W-11914: Bill Bowman (North East Scotland)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 10 October 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what consideration it has given to using land assets held by NHS Tayside to expand parking provision at Ninewells Hospital.

Answered by: Shona Robison 26 October 2017

NHS Tayside continues to take steps to support parking provision at Ninewells hospital and will continue to engage with the local authority, other NHS Boards, travel planning and public transport organisations to ensure that best alternative solutions to any increase in car use are adopted to support access to hospital facilities. The possibilities of introducing future, 'park and ride' interchange points close to the hospital is something that is to be explored.

The potential to create additional car parking spaces at Ninewells is not currently under consideration.
