Consultation

We will carry out public consultation at key points in the project programme, seeking feedback, views and opinions on the design. Dates and venues will be advised at each of these stages. We will also publish the summary findings here.

Gogarloch / South Gyle Parking Restrictions

 

As the West Edinburgh Link  project nears completion of its latest design stage we wish to consult with residents of Gogarloch and South Gyle estates. This consultation regards measures to protect residents streets from potential increases in commuter parking due to the proposed removal of parking on South Gyle Crescent. 

The impact of removing all parking from this road could increase the amount of commuter parking on residential streets in Gogarloch and South Gyle. We are offering local residents two options for the restriction of parking and are posting an information pack to those affected in early January explaining these in detail. Residents can reply via a FREEPOST envelope provided their pack, or through the online survey below.

The project team will also attend the Corstorphine Community Council on 21st January at 18 Kirk Loan, EH12 7HD from 7pm to discuss the proposals and options.

To assist with the filling out of the online survey we have provided localised maps of the proposed options on each street. Find your street below:
