City of Edinburgh Council have began the latest phase of their Leith Connections consultation, following on from consultation work carried out earlier in the year.

Leith Connections consists of two projects being planned by the Council:

(1) A new segregated cycle lane between Ocean Terminal and Foot of the Walk via Great Junction Street
(2) Creating a Leith Low Traffic Neighbourhood area

These are significant proposed changes to how we move around Leith, and lots of community conversation is taking place.

However, it is really important that we make sure our voices are heard whether for or against the proposals, in whole or in part.
