This weekend is your last chance to have your say on the City of Edinburgh Council’s consultation on the proposed City Centre Transformation, with the current round of consultation ending on 7 July 2019.
Around 2,500 people have already responded to proposals, which focus on changes aimed at improving public spaces and prioritising travel on foot, by bike and on public transport.
Here is an interactive Presentation the Council has released on the proposed changes.
Transport and Environment Convener, Councillor Lesley Macinnes, said:
These are bold, transformative proposals which aim to significantly improve the city centre for the many thousands of people travelling to and within Edinburgh. It’s essential that we bring the public along with us as we further develop our vision.
We’ve already had a fantastic response and by extending the consultation we want to encourage even more views and opinions, which are invaluable to the future of the project. This is about creating a liveable, welcoming and people-friendly city and we want everyone to share in its benefits.
Feedback will be taken into consideration when preparing the final strategy and a costed ten-year delivery plan, which will be presented to the Council’s Transport and Environment Committee in September for approval.
The consultation runs alongside two additional, closely linked consultations on major proposed changes to the city – Meadows to George Street, which aims to significantly improve walking and cycling along the route (closing on 7 July), and the Low Emission Zone (closing on 21 July).
