Leith low-traffic neighbourhood consultations (CEC’s actual consultation)

Hot on the heels of the last post, CEC is running a consultation as well as AECOM. LHNCC’s web-weaver guesses (but cannot promise) that Edinburgh Council will be more interested in responses to its own consultation.

Follow this link (https://consultationhub.edinburgh.gov.uk/sfc/low-traffic-neighbourhoods/) to access CEC’s Leith LTN consultation.

There are also workshops – register via Eventbrite as follows.

Leith low-traffic neighbourhood consultation

Message from LHNCC’s secretary

The Low Traffic Neighbourhood (LTN) Team (Leith Connections) announced that Leith LTN consultation/survey will go live on the Hub on Friday 4th July.

The Team will be running 2 public meetings for Leith LTN – one in week beginning 14th June and one in week beginning 28th June – details to be confirmed so not included in information leaflets.

I would recommend reading this and completing survey, especially as it only considers a limited area omitting section North of Commercial Street. This means that leaflets that have been distributed may not have included a large section of our CC.

Leith low traffic neighbourhood

The City of Edinburgh Council is developing a project to create a safer and more comfortable street environment for walking, cycling, wheeling and spending time in the local streets and outdoor spaces of Leith. To achieve this, it is looking to develop a Low Traffic Neighbourhood in the area.

The council plans to carry out an initial community engagement with residents from 8th – 28th February 2021 to gather information and inform the scope of the project. Further engagement is planned throughout the year prior to implementation in winter 2021, with Council Committee approval at key stages.

In order to best represent the community views in the area and provide local knowledge and input to project, the council proposes forming a Community Reference Group (CRG).

It is proposed this group is made up of representatives from local organisations and established groups who will meet at key stages of the project to provide feedback and help share information with the community.

Whilst the group will be a touchstone for local feedback and views, it will not supersede the views of residents expressed during the consultation surveys. It is simply an additional way for the project team to create dialogue with the local community.

The council has contacted the following, and possibly other relevant organisations, to seek advice on what local interest groups and organisations should be invited to join the CRG:

The council has also asked which other organisations it should contact.

The council would propose to convene an online meeting with the CRG during the initial engagement period in February and then follow-up at key stages in the project.
