Starting out

In January 2012 Sustaining Dunbar was approached by East Lothian Council about sorely needed resurfacing work for footpaths and roads in Parsonspool. Sustaining Dunbar has an interest in improving facilities and routes for pedestrians and cyclists around the town as part of our aims to encourage these modes of sustainable travel.

Realising that such extensive road-works are something that is not undertaken very often, Sustaining Dunbar felt that the residents of Parsonspool should have a say in the design and set about organising a public meeting run by experts on street design from the national organisation Sustrans. This website is a record of progress.
