Public Meeting: Traffic, Cycling, Parking

A public meeting has been arranged to discuss plans for traffic, cycling and parking issues in large parts of the ward.  It will take place in the Marchmont St Giles Church, Kilgraston Road on Thursday 25th November at 7pm.  Plans for the various proposals will be on display from 6:30pm.

The meeting is arranged by Edinburgh Council and the Grange/Prestonfield Community Council. There will be a chance to view the various plans before the public meeting starts.  You can also see much of the information at the links below . . .
  • the proposal to impose a 20mph speed limit on all roads in the area (except arterial and 'feeder' routes) - more details here 
  • proposals for a quality bike  corridor route between the King's Buildings and George Square/Potterrow - more details here
  • Resident priority parking  - more details here
I will be in attendance (along with other local councillors) to hear views expressed.

Will the Council publish the details of the "over 40 road casualties in the past three years" used to justify 20mph zone in south Edinburgh?

Suitably scrubbed of personal details of course but with details of the contributing factors, location, time and date, etc, intact.
