Robert Swinney started this petition to Edinburgh City Council

Short sighted Council leaders are grabbing the opportunity to prohibit parking on 9 City High Streets. This is being done in the name of Social Distancing. How big an issue will this be in a few weeks when it is 1m distancing and most people are back at work? This action will ruin many small businesses, critically affect older residents, infirm people and flood side streets with local shoppers/delivery vehicles. This is clearly a move in the midst of CV19 which will suddenly be propositioned as the norm and what people want. Please take this opportunity to support local business and those in need of easy access to the Doctors, Chemist, Dentist, Vets and a quick stop at any of the local cafes, food outlets or Charity shops. If there is a strong desire from these changes from the public then why have we not heard? Thank you.
