Our Streets : what we are having to put up with and what can be done about it

Old Town Community Council has just published Our Streets. This summarises what residents, workers and visitors are having to put up with everyday on our streets in Edinburgh’s Old Town. We have not included worst case examples or unusual events.

Our Streets summarises our concerns and we offer solutions for each of them. The Community Council’s research concludes these solutions are standard in most UNESCO World Heritage Sites that are comparable to the UNESCO World Heritage Site in Old Town.

We give our views on enforcement. Much can be achieved at little or no cost. This can be done by simply and robustly enforcing the rules already in place, and perhaps widening the scope of other existing regulations.

Our report is available here.
