This thread is cross-posted from the old Grange Association forum and only a few of the posts , describing the proposals, are carried across to this new forum. To view the full previous discussion from April 2021, go to this old thread on the old forum. But please post any new comments on this new forum below, not on the old one.
Most residents in the southern half of the Grange will have received this leaflet explaining that the Council is looking at measures to address parking pressures in this area. As part of early engagement, it wants to know what difficulties you experience with parking in the area, as well as your views on what is being proposed. Feedback from this engagement will inform its decision making and designs. Amendments, where possible, will be made to reflect these comments.
Virtual meetings will be held over Microsoft Teams on the following dates and times:
- Monday 26th April 2021 at 1pm
- Wednesday 28th April 2021 at 6pm
You will need to register for a ticket via Eventbrite for either of these events.
The proposals would essentially turn the B1 zone into an area similar that to the north in the S1 zone, where there is no uncontrolled parking during the controlled hours. All parking during those periods would require a permit or a payment (“pay-and-display”). This would discourage the long-term parking of vehicles by non-residents. Visitor permits would be available for residents and regular traders can apply for a Trades Permit.25 August 2022 at 15:39 #10086Grange PlanningKeymaster
The Grange Association Committee met on 17 May 2021 and considered the proposal for a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) in the B1 area. Taking account of:
- The Objectives of the Association;
- The diversity and strength of opinion among members and other residents (as shown in this forum thread); and
- The ongoing engagement by the City of Edinburgh Council (CEC),
the Committee decided not to support or to oppose the principle of a CPZ for the B1 area. Rather, the Committee encourages all members to participate in the current engagement by CEC to ensure all views are represented. The Association will wish to work with members and other residents, CEC, the Community Council and other stakeholders, once the engagement has concluded, to tailor the resulting proposals in line with the Association’s objectives and the interests of its members.
You can record your general views on the proposals on the Council’s general survey form (which includes an option to leave a comment up to 255 characters) and any specific comments on the detailed proposals for the B1 area on the interactive map which lets you drop a pin on a specific proposed parking bay or yellow line to leave a comment or suggestion (up to 255 characters).
The engagement closes on 30 May 2021.25 August 2022 at 15:47 #10088Grange PlanningKeymaster
“An informal consultation took place in April and May 2021. The results of this consultation will be reported to an upcoming meeting of the Transport and Environment Committee.”
The “informal consultation” was the engagement exercise referred to in the posts above, which closed on 30 May 2021.
