Leith Connections

How we are monitoring and evaluating the project

We will monitor a range of ‘before’ and ‘after' data to assess the scheme's impact on the area.

Indicators that we will measure include

  • gauging community reaction to the on-street changes via general feedback and responses to the ETRO
  • gauging community reaction to the on-street changes via surveys and focus groups
  • surveys of the number and speed of vehicles using the streets
  • air quality monitoring
  • noise monitoring
  • business surveys
  • visits with Edinburgh Access Panel

Information gathered will be used to guide future recommendations and decisions on the trial parts of the project.
