City of Edinburgh Council visits Nottingham to learn more about its transport infrastructure

Councillor Cammy Day, Leader of City of Edinburgh Council was joined by colleagues working across Transport, Climate and Policy to learn about how the council has made progress on those areas here in Nottingham, as well as initiatives such as ebikes, escooter trial, its tram network, the Workplace Parking Levy, its Carbon Neutral 2028 ambition, and its strategies for the future of transport in Nottingham. 

Nottingham City Council Leader Councillor David Mellen and Portfolio Holder for Highways, Transport and Planning, Councillor Angela Kandola, hosted the visitors, who heard that an excellent public transport network is especially important for Nottingham due to the council’s low car ownership levels.

The City of Edinburgh team also heard about the council’s ‘pioneering’ Workplace Parking Levy (WPL) which has led to over £1billion direct and indirect investment in our city over the last decade and helped Nottingham reduce congestion growth by 47%, saving 5780 tonnes of C02.
