Just like when you’re waiting on a 16 bus stuck in a traffic jam three arrive at the same time.
The City Council have added three really important consultations for the future of Leith to the consultation hub on the city council webpage.
LEITH CONNECTIONS PHASE 3
Leith Connections: Phase 3 west – east proposals – City of Edinbu
Leith Connection Phase 3 has some lovely graphics including one of Salamander Street with a new cycle lane and narrowed road space for cars and trucks that I’m sorry to say do have to use our roads every day on one of the main arterial routes East to West through the city.
I also find it strange that the graphic doesn’t show the CPZ plan for the same route which had permit holder and pay and display parking on Salamander Street at the same view in the graphic so I do wonder IF these teams actually communicate with each other.
The Leith Connection Phase 3 consultation is open until 17 July so please, please make your thoughts known.
ETRO Go Home?
The next consultation is on ETRO which we may remember in a previous life was known as Spaces for People. Love it or loathe it, the road coning and closures project introduced to make streets safer for cycling, walking and wheeling during the pandemic is now finally up for public consultation. This is your opportunity to comment on the future plans. Do you want them kept or ditched? Have your say now or you could be stuck with them permanently.
LEITH LINKS MASTERPLAN
Finally, the Leith Links Master Plan is also open on the consultation hub for your positive or negative comments. Please use this opportunity to add your views on how you would like to see Leith Links developed for all residents in the future.
The Leith Links Masterplan Team had a stall at Leith Gala and many members of the public visited the tent to find out more and to share their views, so now it’s your turn to do the same.
You can see more about the plans here.

You can also comment here, on the Hub, but you’ll only find a very limited set of leading questions. If you have more to say on any specific point, you should email directly to Miles.Wilkinson@edinburgh.gov.uk
The deadline for this consultation is 31 July. Please also be sure to copy your email also to our elected Councillors:
