Parking in the Dumbiedykes and part of the Pleasance

There are plans for new parking controls and arrangements for the following streets in the Dumbiedykes, Oakfield Place and Briery Bauks (the latter two are between the Pleasance and Dumbiedykes).

The problem has been that this niche area has effectively had no parking controls since the company responsible for policing the streets pulled out several years ago.

So the current plan is to make Briery Bauks part of Zone 7 with the Dumbiedykes becoming part of Central Zone 3.   This would provide protected parking spaces for residents at a charge.

There is a leaflet being delivered in the near future and a consultation inviting views will go online shortly (it will be at www.edinburgh.gov.uk/parkingsurvey).  But don't hold your breath.  It is unlikely to come into effect until Spring 2018.

I will keep you updated.
