East Lothian Council has successfully secured £1.4m of funding to introduce a series of temporary changes to streets to improve health and wellbeing so that everyone is able to move around their local area safely during the transition through and out of the pandemic crisis.

By the 31st May we had received around 3000 contributions to the Commonplace website suggesting or endorsing temporary measures to provide additional physical distancing space in public places.
Thanks to everyone who responded.
We’ve now submitted a £1.4m bid to Transport Scotland’s Spaces for People fund and will share a further update when funding is confirmed.
