Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City of Edinburgh Council is proposing measures to address parking pressures in your area. As part of the process of introducing these measures, we want to know what difficulties you experience with parking in your area, as well as your views on what is being proposed.


Why are we consulting you?

The Council has seen a recent increase in requests from communities across the city, asking us to take action to tackle the issues caused by non-residential parking. In particular, residents have expressed concern that the lack of parking controls is impacting on their ability to park near to their own homes.

In response to those concerns, the Council took the decision to undertake a citywide assessment of parking pressures. By looking at the entire city, including all satellite towns and villages, this review took a strategic, proactive approach to address increasing parking pressures across the city.

The review split the city into areas, with surveys undertaken in every street across the city to measure parking pressures. The results were then used to assess the potential need for control in each area.

The overall outcome of the review is a prioritised list of areas, with the Council adopting a phased approach that will see parking controls proposed in those areas worst impacted by parking pressure.


What are we proposing?

We are now proposing parking controls in several areas where we believe would provide benefits not only to residents but also to visitors and businesses. Each area is listed below, please select one to read further details:


Have your say

Your views on parking and parking issues in your area are important to us. You can have your say by providing your feedback through our online survey.
