Posted on: July 8, 2021

Our response to the City of Edinburgh Council’s consultation on two low traffic neighbourhoods in the city

The City of Edinburgh Council is seeking feedback from local residents, visitors and businesses on our projects in the Corstorphine and Leith areas of the city which aim to create a safer and more comfortable environment for walking, cycling, wheeling and spending time in local streets and outdoor spaces.

These projects build upon the City of Edinburgh Council’s current cycling and walking projectsActive Travel Action PlanCity Mobility Plan and in Leith the cycle and walking improvements that are a part of the Trams to Newhaven project.

Further details about the consultation can be found at the website link below.

Cockburn Response

We welcome this CEC initiative to address the desire of local residents in Corstorphine and Leith for safer walking, cycling and wheeling spaces and for improved crossing points.

We would like to take the opportunity to stress the need to proactively monitor these temporary schemes and the importance of ongoing and meaningful engagement with local communities at all stages of this scheme.
