Says The City of Edinburgh Council, on its website: “Edinburgh residents have made more than 4,100 suggestions for creating more space to walk, cycle and wheel during the ongoing coronavirus crisis. 

“Since launching the Commonplace platform in partnership with Sustrans at the end of May along with a dedicated inbox, we’ve received 4,105 comments and ideas for making streets more accessible and welcoming.

“This will help to inform existing measures and those coming forward over the coming weeks and months.”
