At the City of Edinburgh Council Policy and Sustainability Committee on
Thursday, 20th August, 2020, councillors approved to maintain the current Spaces for People measures for at least another two months.
As part of this meeting, the CEC also published several new reports on the Spaces for People initiative, including details on the estimated costs of each project, and how the projects were prioritised across the city.
As local residents asked questions at the last GDCC Public Meeting about the comparable cost of the Gorgie/Dalry Spaces for People measures with other areas of the city, and how measures were prioritised, we have extracted these details from the report.
Appendix 1 – Prioritised Scheme list – Shopping Streets
Appendix 2 – Programme Scoring Criteria
For full details of scoring criteria, and to compare against other projects, see Item 6.11 – Spaces for People Programme Update [PDF]
As the City of Edinburgh Council continues to tweak and review the measures, and with parts of the Gorgie/Dalry scheme still to be implemented (relocating south side bus stop opposite ScotMid in Gorgie to an area with wider footways to aid queuing [outside Costa]) residents can get in touch with any comments by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we can pass them on to the Spaces for People team.
