    Cycling and Walking Improvements on Arboretum Place at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

    https://consultationhub.edinburgh.gov.uk/sfc/arboretum-place-at-the-royal-botanic-garden-edinbu/supporting_documents/118072%20Arboretum%20Place.pdf

    Not sure where the cycling improvements are coming from other than from brief traffic calming, though.

    @jonty, that link doesn't work. Can't find the consultation via the CEC consultations hub either.

    Seems to have been taken down (I presume temporarily).

    To summarise: they want to narrow the circular bit outside to two vehicle lanes plus three two-car disabled bays and put a zebra crossing in the middle.

    I will be suggesting they also prevent access to everywhere except Inverleith Place at the adjacent mini-roundabout to reduce traffic volumes and speeds.

    Consultation on Low Emissions Zones:

    https://consult.scotland.gov.uk/transport-scotland/building-scotlands-low-emission-zones/

    This consultation paper sets out the proposed arrangements and options to deliver a consistent approach to designing, building and managing Low Emission Zones (LEZs) in Scotland. It is your opportunity to shape the guiding principles the Scottish Government will adopt to put in place the first LEZ by 2018.

    Discussed here: http://citycyclingedinburgh.info/bbpress/topic.php?id=18108#post-259684

    Removing a traffic island from Kirk Brae:

    https://consultationhub.edinburgh.gov.uk/sfc/kirk-brae-island-removal/

    Pedestrians don't use it and cars keep hitting it, so removing it will make the road safer. Anyone care to suggest what might actually make the road safer?

    They need to have a consultation on a traffic island? Yet a massive 3-lane motorway-style gyratory in the city-centre can get pushed through without?

    @Stickman

    I've suggested giving all affected motorists one of these so they can drive home with their eyes shut in perfect safety.

    @Stickman In which case I suggest replacing it with a very large immovable steel bollard of the type which can resist ram attacks by 44 tonne lorries...that should persuade the drivists to keep their eyes open.

    I think removing that would indeed be useful for cyclists. You get close passes aplenty coming up to it.

    Can they not just give the bollards a situational awareness upgrade!

    Consultation on surcharge for diesel vehicle parking permits:

    Diesel vehicle parking permits - comments:

    There should be a surcharge on all fossil-fuelled vehicles (i.e. including petrol). Surcharges should reflect the level of noxious emissions on a per-vehicle basis.

    Funds raised should be used to subsidise the purchase of cargo- and electric cargo-bikes to help businesses (and residents) transfer from vans (which are often larger than they need to be) to e-cargo-bikes, etc.

    Added the following comments at the end:

    Any Other Comments:
    I would go further than a diesel surcharge, and seriously consider the following measures:
    1 A workplace parking levy, which has shown in Nottingham that it actually reduces the use of private cars for commuting to work, and provides revenue for public transport, in Nottingham's case, its tram network.
    2 Incentives for using Park and Ride. Firstly, ensure that the onward public transport options are fast, and go where commuters want to go, so direct services from P&R to major employment centres such as the west of Edinburgh.
    3 A genuinely market-based price for parking permits. If you were to calculate the market value of the (on average) 12 sq metres that each parking space requires, you will accept that the current parking permit price is nowhere near the value that those permits provide.
    4 Incentives for shops and businesses getting deliveries and conducting business by cargo bikes which can be electric assist bikes to make it very easy and comfortable to move around Edinburgh quickly and efficiently.
    5 Quickly introduce a low emission zone which should cover at the very least the World Heritage Site area, and I would suggest a much wider area from Grange to Inverleith and Corstorphine to Leith and Portobello.

    My additional comments:

    1. An immediate restriction to 1 permit per household in all areas,
    2. A review of all developments which include private parking and exclusion of these households entirely from the permit system,
    3. The introduction of a waiting list system so no new permits are issued until demand no longer exceeds supply,
    4. Demand based pricing so that the waiting list in each zone is never longer than 1 calendar month from application,
    5. A reduction in the price of trader permits to encourage these users to park in marked bays.

    I think the theme of our comments is that a "diesel surcharge" is nibbling around the edges of actual problems

    I wonder if it would have been a petrol surcharge were the manufacturers not rumbled.

    3 A genuinely market-based price for parking permits. If you were to calculate the market value of the (on average) 12 sq metres that each parking space requires, you will accept that the current parking permit price is nowhere near the value that those permits provide.

    Is there a handy way of calculating the cost of that according to local property prices?
