Totally spoils an already slightly spoilt looking street.
It needs improved not made to look worse.
We live in Scotland. We don’t need outdoor eateries that lack atmosphere. We have a great Festival, however it doesn’t mean we need, or want, it all year round.
I’ve cycled George Street a couple times and near been knocked off, and visa versa sadly I nearly knocked someone over. The cycle lanes are horrendous, pedestrians don’t look, and many cyclists don’t care.
I don’t mind things being trialled, but how much money was spent?
I’m really getting to my limit with continual activity in Edinburgh. I once loved my city. Now it’s becoming tacky, busy, expensive, with a constant need to 'sell it'. It sells itself. It’s beautiful.
PLEASE just leave some natural areas and stop being a 'try hard'. We're just fine as we are, ta!
