Line shapefile of all the Waiting and Loading Markings (e.g. single yellow, double yellow etc.) within the City Of Edinburgh Council administrative area backed by a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO). This data is extracted from Smallworld on a monthly basis.
Polygons of all the parking bays within the City Of Edinburgh Council administrative area backed by a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO).
Locations of grit bins within the City of Edinburgh Council area.
This dataset shows priority 1 road gritting routes, priority 1 pavement gritting routes and local priority pavement gritting routes.
Every local authority and National Park authority (access authorities) in Scotland is required to draw up a plan for a system of paths (core paths) sufficient for the purpose of giving the public reasonable access throughout their area. Core paths are paths, waterways or any other means of crossing land to facilitate, promote and manage the exercise of access rights under the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003, and are identified as such in access authority core paths plan. There are, intentionally, no set physical standards for core paths. This means that core paths can physically be anything from a faint line across a field to a fully constructed path, track or pavement. The National Access Forum, Scottish Natural Heritage and Scottish Government are encouraging information to be surveyed and made publicly available, in a nationally-standardised form, so that the public will know what physical type of route they can expect. Government guidance is making core paths the priority for rolling out this national standardised grading system information, which is set out at http://www.pathsforall.org.uk/pfa/creating-paths/path-grading-system.html
Controlled Parking Zones represent areas of parking restriction for residential use. Also included in this dataset are priority parking areas. Priority parking places only operate for 90 minutes each day which will stop commuters and non residents from parking in the permit holders places.

Many local authorities capture details of the cycle network within their jurisdiction. These maybe lanes along roads or segregated paths away from vehicles. This dataset attempts to pull these together into a national network.
Car parking zones in Perth city centre. Parking in Perth City is divided into three zones. Different pricing and waiting periods apply depending on the zone.
Each local authority creates gritting routes and regimes to keep their most important roads (and in some cases footpaths) and networks clear come bad winter weather. Most LAs create these as line datasets. So the national dataset is a line format dataset. We now have two layers: one for road gritting and one for footpath. Some LAs collect this data as a polygon dataset. We are working with them to convert this into line formats in the future. We have removed trunk roads that are cleared by private companies e.g BEAR and AMEY from this dataset for the time being as they aren't currently under the LA gritting route regime. Eventually, the Street Gazetteer will enable us to identify these routes more accurately and coherently.
