Parking in Edinburgh – consultation

(adapted from an email from Edinburgh Council)

Edinburgh Council is consulting on its draft parking action plan (PAP). The PAP sets out a range of actions and was approved for consultation 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

Edinburgh Council wants to know what you think about the parking proposals, so it can make the right decisions about parking in Edinburgh.  Once you’ve read the proposals, please fill in the questionnaire.
