2010 Tramstop “prior approval” planning applications

1809 Tram Extension second consultation [following the changes resulting from the initial 1803 consultation below]  Consultation page  Spokes response [pdf]  Our response uses the online survey questions, which were very limited, concerning only the abovementioned changes.  In particular the questions had little detail between Foot of Walk and Newhaven – our comments on that remain largely as in our 1804 response below and are not repeated in this response.

1803-04 Tram Extension first detailed consultation

NB – these original plans were absolutely disastrous for Leith Walk, car lanes increased from 2 to 4, cyclists to be squeezed between parked vehicles and tramlines.  The public response was massive – see below.  As a result, the plans were drastically revised, [Spokes tweet, council news release] car lanes reduced and segregated unidirectional bike lanes promised on each side.  The details (so far) only became fully public when the revised scheme was then consulted on – see para 1809 above.
