Thank you to those that took part in our consultation. 

We asked for your views on five draft action plans (Active Travel, Air Quality, Parking, Public Transport and Road Safety) and the emerging Our Future Streets (circulation plan) over a 12-week period from 17 April until 9 July 2023.

We held in-person workshops, market research, an online survey, public drop-in events, and focus groups capturing seldom heard and underrepresented groups.

The consultation gained further understanding of the some of the city’s biggest priorities and difficult decisions needed to deliver committed targets, City Mobility Plan (CMP) objectives and ways in which we can further enhance related programmes such as Edinburgh’s City Centre Transformation. Key targets include reducing car kilometres by 30% by 2030, reaching net zero for carbon by 2030, and achieving Vision Zero for safety by 2050.

Read more about how we have used the consultation feedback, alongside data and technical evidence, to further inform, and reinforce or revise the final outputs of this work.


We approved the City Mobility Plan for Edinburgh in February 2021. Our vision is for people, goods and services to be able to move into and around Edinburgh in a way that is safe, sustainable, efficient and can benefit everyone.

We have an ambitious 2030 target to lower the number of kilometres travelled by car in Edinburgh by 30%. Edinburgh also aims to achieve Net Zero by 2030. We understand that some people will still need to make certain journeys by car and for others using public transport or active travel is not always a realistic option.

A suite of action plans designed to support the delivery of the City Mobility Plan to 2030 (CMP) were approved for consultation by councillors in December and February.

Together, these action plans aim to create cleaner, greener, safer, more accessible and affordable travel choices, while reinforcing the Capital’s Net Zero 2030 goals.

Our Future Streets framework outlines how we can make changes to the allocation of limited street space to improve our streets. It will also provide a more welcoming environment for everyone.

Why your views matter

We want to hear you views on proposals and priorities set out in the Action Plans and Our Future Streets framework. These cover a range of areas, including making streets more accessible, improving public transport and active travel networks, as well as achieving ambitious road safety targets and creating people-friendly, thriving neighbourhoods and shopping streets.

Gathering views from our communities, alongside data and technical evidence, will be critical to making necessary decisions on how to balance different travel needs with the limited street space we have.
