In 2019, we launched a project about the problems caused by pavement clutter – and what we can do about it [https://www.livingstreetsedinburgh.or… ]. We’re now delighted to launch a new video and report about the project. “Cut the Pavement Clutter” looks at a number of questions:
what is pavement clutter? why does it matter? and (most importantly) what can we do about it?
We hope that these resources will be used as widely as possible to raise awareness of the problems which cluttered pavements cause, and to raise the bar in making streets better for everyday walking. Anyone is welcome to use them freely – for example in presentations, conferences, seminars or staff training events.
Of course, we need more fundamental transformation of many of our streets too, but most streets in Edinburgh, Scotland and the UK would be better places almost overnight, if we could ‘cut the clutter’.
Thanks to Paths for All for funding from the Smarter Choices, Smarter Places fund, and to Living Streets Scotland and City of Edinburgh Council for their support for the project.
