East Lothian Council is recommending modifications to the Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) for Dunbar to reflect current parking behaviour and road use by residents and businesses.

Consultation respondents may wish to take the following into account :

- The length of time of stay (in relation to parking)
- The no return period (in relation to parking)
