Royal Mile Action

Latest consultation news......
The Council are considering changes to traffic management on the Royal Mile and are asking for your views.
A number of workshops and events will be held over the coming weeks to discuss progress on the Royal Mile Action Plan which was started last year following a Charette at the Hub in January 2012

Since then action has been limited to improving the tourist offering by employing a Royal Mile Manager Sarah Cooke who has assisted in the establishment of the Royal Mile Business Association.

The next step is to look at improving the pedestrian environment around the Mile and traffic management. Hopefully consideration over the mix of uses will also be looked at along side waste management, street clutter and how traffic changes fit with other diversions around the city centre.

On Saturday the Community Engagement Day will include opportunities for anyone of any age with an interest or love of the Old Town (including residents past and present) to contribute their story's to the timeline, participate in community mapping, guided walks and graffiti art and help guide action to improve this Historic Street for all who live in and visit it.
