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

The engagement period for this scheme has now closed. Thank you for your feedback.


The City of Edinburgh Council is looking at measures to address parking pressures in your area. As part of early engagement, we want to know what difficulties you experience with parking in your area, as well as your views on what is being proposed. Feedback from this engagement will inform our decision making and designs. Amends, where possible, will be made to reflect these comments.

This is not a formal consultation and written objections aren’t required at this stage. Should the proposals move forward to TRO, we would advertise the legal notice and invite any objections to be raised formally.


Why are we consulting you?

The Council has seen a recent increase in requests from communities across the city, asking them 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. This review took a strategic, proactive approach to address increasing parking pressures across the city.

The review split the city into 124 areas, with surveys undertaken in every street in each area to measure parking availability. The results were then used to create the proposals within this engagement.

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 they 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:

You will find dates and times as well as links to tickets for virtual events on the individual area pages.
