Notes about this page

  • This page covers schemes related to the covid19 pandemic and using Scottish Government / Sustrans Spaces for People [SfP] funding and rules or the Bus Priority Rapid Development Fund [BPRDF]
  • It is a largely complete listing though we cannot promise it is 100%
  • Note that in view of the urgency, organisations only get 5 days to respond, so our volunteers have put in a lot of effort!
  • The Lothians Councils also have SfP schemes. East Lothian Midlothian West Lothian
  • Please share this page by retweeting here.

Schools

Some early school projects were fairly minor, but many of the more recent ones are quite ambitious with 24/7 road closures. We wonder if easier ones were tackled earlier, or if the Council gained confidence as experience built up!

Note – primary schools are listed in alphabetic order, except where the Council held combined consultations.
