Craigmillar and Niddrie - Living Well Locally

Closes 7 Jul 2023

Opened 10 May 2023


We want to hear your views on the High Street on Niddrie Mains Road as well as the local faciltiies and greenspaces in the local area.

This project is linked to the City of Edinburgh Council’s 20-Minute Neighbourhood Strategy. The 20-minute neighbourhood approach is about places where everyone can access the facilities and services to meet most of their daily needs within a short walk, wheel* or cycle from their home.

The project is supported by Sustrans’ Places for Everyone funding. Places for Everyone is an active travel infrastructure programme funded by the Scottish Government and administered by Sustrans. The Places for Everyone programme provides support and expertise to help deliver walking, wheeling, and cycling improvements across the country.

* Wheeling refers to people using a mobility scooter, wheelchair, or other wheeled mobility aid, as well as people walking with pushchairs and prams.

Why your views matter

This survey aims to:

  • Understand your views on the High Street on Niddrie Mains Road and how it can be improved.
  • Identify how walking, wheeling, cycling and public transport links to the High Street and other local facilities can be improved.
  • Identify opportunities to improve the provision of, and access to, greenspaces.

The survey will inform the development of a concept design plan for how the High Street and access to local faciltiies could be improved.

The Council will continue to work with the local community and businesses as this develops.

Participation in this survey should take 10 - 15 minutes.
