As part of the consultation outlined above, the Council is seeking views on five draft actions plans which aim to:
- make Edinburgh’s streets accessible for everyone
- improve public transport and active transport networks
- fully join-up the cycle network
- deliver a people-friendly city centre including vibrant shopping streets
- create safer, thriving neighbourhoods
- achieve ambitious road safety targets, including zero fatalities on our road network by 2030
- [reduce] harmful emissions across the city.
Each of these five action plans has been prepared to support the delivery of the approved City Mobility Plan (CMP):
1. Active Travel Action Plan
2. Public Transport Action Plan
3. Road Safety Action plan
4. Parking Action Plan
5. Air Quality Action Plan
In addition to those five action plans, the Council is also seeking views on an emerging Future Streets framework which outlines how it can make changes to the allocation of limited street space to improve our streets and provide a more welcoming environment for everyone. Progress on this work to date has been reported to the Transport and Environment Committee in stages most recently in February 2023.
You can find more detail on the five draft action plans and the emerging Future Streets framework here.
The Council is undertaking a range of activities to maximise opportunities for everyone to share their views on these plans. As part of this it is holding a series of public drop in events spread across the city. Some of the key areas it is keen to discuss include:
6. The challenges and difficult decisions required to deliver the CMP objectives with limited street space.
7. The key priorities across each of the five draft action plans – focussing on proposed actions which build on commitments already approved in the CMP
8. Any potential gaps across the five draft action plans.
