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' :
- Transform Street Management
- Invest Much More in Walking
- Make a Comprehensive Traffic Plan for the City Centre
- 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.
The Police Scotland West End Community Officers' contact details are
They emphasise that the email box is not monitored 24/7 so in circumstances where the Police are required 101 or 999 should always be the first port of call.
They encourage people to follow them on Twitter as 'we provide near daily updates about Police activity in the City Centre'.

Police Scotland consults with the public every year on what their priorities are for policing in their community. This year the consultation process is widening, becoming more flexible, and moving online to a digital format that will be open all year.
Everyone's views across Scotland will be taken on board at a national and local level. There is no 'one size fits all' approach to local policing and all the needs and wants of individual communities will be considered.
It's a very simple process that should only take a few moments of your time but will shape the way that policing is coordinated across Scotland and in your local community.
Police Scotland will keep you updated on our quarterly results. The consultation will be a completely transparent process as it's all about your priorities.
