A major consultation to help shape the way people move around, to and from Edinburgh got underway on Monday (17 April).
A suite of action plans designed to support the delivery of the City Mobility Plan to 2030 (CMP) were approved for consultation by councillors in December and February.
Together, the Active Travel, Public Transport, Parking, Road Safety and Air Quality Action Plans aim to create cleaner, greener, safer, more accessible and affordable travel choices, while reinforcing the Capital’s Net Zero 2030 goals.
Each of the plans sits under the emerging Circulation Plan and its associated Streetspace Allocation Framework, which underpin the transition towards a less congested, more liveable, healthy and sustainable city.
Feedback is sought on all of the plans collectively, including via an online survey, public drop-ins, focus group and key stakeholder discussions and a toolkit to support community group involvement.
The consultation will run until 9 July and outcomes will be reported to Transport and Environment Committee later this year, culminating in the finalisation of each plan.
Respondents to the survey can share their views on proposals and priorities in a range of areas, including making streets more accessible, improving public transport and active travel networks, as well as achieving ambitious road safety targets and creating people-friendly, thriving neighbourhoods and shopping streets.
CMP actions support Edinburgh’s Net Zero 2030 target and aim to help drive down the number of kilometres travelled by car in the city by 30% by 2030, reduce air pollution and improve public health.
