Petition to stop Spaces for People measures becoming permanent

An online petition has been launched with a view to stopping Edinburgh’s Spaces for People measures being made permanent.

These are the measures like cycle lanes and parking restrictions which have been implemented temporarily all over the city.

Edinburgh Access Panel has objected to many of the measures. We are particularly concerned about the safety of pedestrians as they have to cross a cycle lane to get to and from their bus or parked car. Another major concern is the erosion of access and parking availability for blue badge holders.

Here’s a link to the petition.
