This came in from the City of Edinburgh Council and might be of interest to Edinburgh churches:
A consultation is underway on parking in Edinburgh. The draft parking action plan sets out a range of actions and was approved by the Transport and Environment Committee on 25 August. The main actions include:
- The extension of parking controls to cover weekends/Sundays and into the evening
- The roll out of shared use parking places
- The introduction of visitor permits in the city centre
We want to know what you think about the parking proposals to ensure the Council makes the right decisions about parking in Edinburgh. Once you’ve read the proposals, please fill in the questionnaire.
