Details of changes to the layout of the bi-directional cycleway on Leith Walk

NTBCC has been asked by Trams to Newhaven to publish the following. Any queries should be sent to them, via one of these contact-methods. NTBCC was not consulted on these diversions. 

Location: North-bound side of Leith Walk

Timescale: 15 March 2021 till Autumn 2021 (in sections)

To allow for the continued construction of the new tram line and to begin creating the segregated cycleway that is part of the final design for the project, we are now required to review the bi-directional cycle lane provision on the north-bound side of Leith Walk.

While these works are being carried out there will be restrictions in in place for cyclists.  Sections of the temporary bi-directional cycleway that are currently in place will need to close. Where possible, alternative routes will be signposted for cyclists, however there may be instances when this is not possible.

There will be signage installed for cyclists accessing the north-side of Leith Walk to advise of these changes.

Edinburgh Council Planning Service Update: 24 April 2020

Following on from this information about the SG’s planning guidance on pre-applications, Edinburgh Council’s planning department has emailed community councils about how it is changing services in response to coronavirus.

Dear Community Councillors

We are writing to make you aware of a recent change to our service.

We are adapting our service so that we can support communities and businesses across Edinburgh through this difficult time. Our aim is to boost online public input to planning processes so that we can make and issue decisions which will both help with a swift recovery and a positive future for the city.  To do this we have introduced ways for people to stay informed and comment on planning proposals despite the coronavirus lockdown.

We are now:

  • Starting our publication of applications that we have received since the lockdown commenced in March.
  • Issuing neighbour notification letters by post, with the planning portal open for comments to be made on applications.
