Corstorphine Placemaking Exercise

This exercise consisted of 14 questions regarding different areas of living and working within Corstorphine area.

CCC run events in Old Parish Church Hall on:

Saturday 24 September, 2016 at 9:30 AM -11:00 AM

Tuesday 27 September, 2016 at 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM

Tuesday 27 September, 2016 at 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM

Public members who attended, run a discussion on each question and reached common score on scale from 1-7 were 1 meant WORST EVER and 7 NOTHING TO IMPROVE.

They also shared their own, very insightful ideas of improvement for some areas and appreciation for others. Those results and opinions were forwarded to Edinburgh Council appropriate bodies for consideration regarding future of the area. We are hoping for the results before the end of the year.

Thanks to that exercise CCC also gained new members in latest elections.

Often times a serious concern was raised over St. John’s Road being the most polluted road in Scotland.

At our meeting in October a question was asked: What do you think would be best solution to this problem?

And the answer was: Make Corstorphine pedestrianised.

Attendees decided certain things could be done in this direction.

  • rat runs could be addressed with bollarding,
  • close off residential streets,
  • reduce the types of traffic using main roads,
  • introduce walking or cycling areas for school children,
  • increase time for pedestrians crossing lights at the White Lady. Drivers will find other routes to avoid long waits.
