Royal Mile Action Plan

Edinburgh City Council has put forward a draft of the Royal Mile Action Plan earlier this year in order to make the capital’s most famous street more appealing for its visitors from home and abroad. The future of the Royal Mile is to be considered in a consultation exercise

The council has organized a number of workshops in the area to discuss the future of the Royal Mile with stakeholders as well as local residents.

Issues suggested for consideration by the Council include traffic flows and the mix of retail outlets. Many of those operating businesses in the street have said they are busier than ever, but some visitors have said they were let down by their overall experience of the area.

The last two workshops will take place on Wednesday 17 April 2013 in Trinity Apse and on Tuesday 23 April 2013 in Riddle’s Court. The closing date for comments on the Royal Mile Action Plan is 17 May 2013.
