traffic congestion, transport and parking difficulties

limited public space

belief that the town’s unique heritage and contemporary identity is not showcased to its best advantage

- 2 days in a ‘pop-up-shop’ on the High St

- at FestiVale, youth music event

- 1 week at Musselburgh Library

- a morning at the Hollies Day Centre

- a Saturday morning at Tesco

Over 1,000 people have taken part in the consultation

Over 1,200 separate cards and comments have been put on the map

404 questionnaires have been completed
