Open More Space for the Public

Assess where private space could be open to the public to allow for exercise. For example in Edinburgh City there are several locked gardens such as Queen Street gardens which are not open to the public.

Why the contribution is important

This would enable more people to exercise in their local area without the need for travel thereby keeping the roads quieter and avoiding people all exercising in the same areas. It could make social distancing easier and limit car use.

    Yes, good plan. I live in Edinburgh and close to Colinton Dell & the walkway here is now very busy with people, quite rightly so, out on their daily walk. We need more places open to reduce congestion.
