Manifesto for walking

(adapted from an email from Living Streets Edinburgh)

With Council elections taking place on 4 May 2017, Living Streets Edinburgh is asking all political parties to include measures in their manifestos that will make walking in Edinburgh safer, easier and more enjoyable. Edinburgh is a naturally 'walkable' city but conditions for pedestrians are often  inadequate. Yet despite barriers to walking almost every one walks. Living Streets want City of Edinburgh Council to build on this and to support their aim to make Edinburgh a truly world class city for people walking.

Here are Living Street's four 'big ideas' :

  1. Transform Street Management
  2. Invest Much More in Walking
  3. Make a Comprehensive Traffic Plan for the City Centre
  4. Pedestrianise George Street

The full manifesto delivered to all councillors can be seen at http://www.livingstreetsedinburgh.org.uk/Living-Streets-Edinburgh-Manifesto.pdf. New Town and Broughton Community Council would like to hear your views on the Living Streets manifesto. Please use our contact form to tell us what you think.
