As you may know there are some pretty major changes planned to Zones 7 and 8 (Alastair blogged about it below). The report is on available here: http://cpol.edinburgh.gov.uk/getdoc_ext.asp?DocId=101907
Now, the proposed boundary changes are quite significant, making a long, thin, smaller zone 8 between the Meadows and S1.
I've talked to a (very) few people and consensus seems to be that it would be much better for that new little zone 8 (not the new 8A) to be merged into S1.
Susie Agnew and I made a presentation on your behalf to propose this to the council this morning. The suggestion seemed well received. There will be further consultation about this. But, while there wasn't time to canvas many people before the meeting, it is important to check that our suggestion meets with general approval.
Please, so that we know we are proposing the right thing, leave a comment on the blog stating if you are for or against merging zone 8 into S1.
