Proposed waiting/loading restriction changes to facilitate footway widening – Great Junction Street

Copied from an email from CEC’s Spaces for People. LCCC position on such rushed ‘consultations‘ (for example, in this post) remains that ‘LCCC regrets that the procedural shortcomings of a foreshortened consultation process may impinge on the quality of the proposed measures and undermine public trust and support.

EDIT: Great Junction St is not in LCCC’s area, but it is quite possible that the changes will impact the area.

Covid-19 Cycling and Walking Emergency Response Measures

Proposed waiting/loading restriction changes to facilitate footway widening – Great Junction Street

Following our email of 26 June advising that we would notify you once further details were available for the proposals above, we are pleased to be able to provide these now. We are aware that you were initially given proposals for Great Junction Street and Easter Road in a single notification, however in an effort to provide details at the earliest opportunity these have been separated and plans for Easter Road will be issued as soon as they are available.

We would suggest that you view the plan to see the detail of what is proposed.

Proposed Bus, Cycle and Taxi gates, segregated cycle lanes and Footway widening on Forrest Road, The Mound, South Bridge and George IV Bridge (and North Bridge)

LCCC received the email below on 8 June 2020 along with drawings for Forrest Road, The Mound, George IV Bridge, South Bridge (a fifth drawing for North Bridge was obtained separately from NTBCC’s website), inviting us to respond within five business days to the proposals.

Given that five days are insufficient to allow for a considered response to complex proposals, even at the best of times, we wrote back (see below) stating that LCCC is not in a position to respond formally and substantially while much of public and democratic life is curtailed under emergency powers and LCCC is not able to hold public, properly constituted meetings.

LCCC regrets that the procedural shortcomings of a foreshortened consultation process may impinge on the quality of the proposed measures and undermine public trust and support.

Residents may wish to respond individually. If so, write to spacesforpeople@edinburgh.gov.uk by 5pm on Monday, 15 June 2020.
