City of Edinburgh Council visit to learn about Nottingham’s Transport infrastructure

We were pleased and honoured to host colleagues from City of Edinburgh Council today during their visit to Nottingham.

Councillor Cammy Day, Leader of City of Edinburgh Council was joined by colleagues working across Transport, Climate and Policy to learn about how we’ve made progress on those areas here in Nottingham, as well as initiatives such as our ebikes, escooter trial, our tram network, the Workplace Parking Levy, our Carbon Neutral 2028 ambition, and our 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 our low car ownership levels.

Our City of Edinburgh colleagues also heard about our 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.
