In 2018, East Lothian Council, and our partners AECOM and Sustrans, gathered data and peoples’ feedback about Musselburgh’s streets. Using that, we identified routes that people thought were important and the improvements they’d like to see.

The first stage of work on this project was summarised in a report Future Proofing Musselburgh’s Infrastructure for Sustainable Modes of Travel.

We consulted on our ambitions for three of the routes between May and June 2021. Further information on the project and the concept proposals we consulted on are shown on the project website.

We have reviewed and analysed all of the feedback which is summarised in a Consultation Report.

We also produced a Consultation Gap Analysis Report which identifies sections of the community that may be under-represented in the responses that were received through the consultation.

The feedback plus the effects of other schemes that have developed since we first published the Musselburgh Active Travel Masterplan in 2018 led the project team to review the Masterplan.  The other schemes include the Musselburgh Flood Protection Scheme (MFPS) which has expanded in scope and scale, the Brunton Journey Hub, Spaces for People and Bus Partnership Fund. The revised Masterplan is set out in the Masterplan Addendum Report.

The MAT team attended MFPS consultations at the Brunton Hall in February and March 2022 where we gathered lots of additional feedback. The consultation and feedback are summarised in the MAT MFPS Consultation Report.

We are now working up preferred Concept Designs for two of the Masterplan routes, taking into account the MAT consultation feedback plus feedback from MFPS and Spaces for People consultations.

This plan shows the revised network of routes.
