SSE have been subject to health and safety concerns over dangerous parking at Auld Bond Road.

Residents have been infuriated by the dangerous parking at Auld Bond Road over the lack of space at its headquarters in Perth. Allegedly Perth & Kinross Council had refused planning permission over new car park space based on allocation restrictions.

Residents close by are prepared to name and shame the drivers who are parking dangerously against Auld Bond Road.

A 26-year-old employee at SSE who wishes to remain anonymous confirmed many staff feel the same frustration with the lack of space and safety concerns. The customer service advisor also claimed arriving to work not late is a more priority than parking more appropriately.

The 26-year-old said “I feel for the residents near to SSE I can appreciate their frustration and many of us feel the same way, but we’re down to limited choice its either being unemployed or traveling by car and finding a parking space”

Last week a spokesperson from SSE said:“We are aware of residents’ concerns about parking on Auld Bond Road and have reminded employees of the dangers associated with irresponsible parking.

“Equivalent car parking spaces have been created while work on the new link building is underway and employees have been encouraged to use these, car share, or travel on our free minibus service from Perth railway station as an alternative to parking on public roads.

“SSE has also held discussions with the local council and the police this week, and any employee found to be parked illegally will be asked to move their vehicle immediately.”

SSE refused to comment on the new allegations.
