Sustaining Dunbar brings people together to inspire and support new initiatives in the Dunbar and East Linton ward which create local jobs and help people cut their fuel bills, grow more food and spend more time locally. This will reduce the impact increasing oil prices have on our lives and make it easier for us to cope with future extreme weather and challenging economic times.

Sustaining Dunbar want to make it easier and safer for everyone to walk and cycle. It has long been raised as an issue that the construction of the A1 as a trunk road in the 1960s severed existing rural roads that connected villages with the nearby coast and to Dunbar. The residents of these communities are effectively cut off and are obliged to use cars in order to cover what are short journeys; such as Innerwick to the coast at Barns Ness or Skateraw, or Meikle Pinkerton to Dunbar. A usable link across the A1 would also offer potential for circular leisure routes.
We are looking into how best to create safe walking and cycling routes to the town. The first step was to review of evidence from previous surveys to determine the level of support for creating new path routes to Dunbar and the Coast, from the villages to the south of the A1. This report is now available here.
Ideas for new/upgraded paths to Dunbar from the Lammermuir villages will be presented at a meeting of the East Lammermuir Community Council on 18th June at 7.30pm. Please come along or email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
We will also be looking for your feedback at Innerwick Community Cafe on 7th June (9-11am) and at the Bleachingfield Centre in Dunbar during Civic Week (14-23rd June)
If you haven’t already, please sign this EU Petition to persuade the EU Commissioner to consider setting 20mph limits in residential streets (local authorities will still be able to set other limits where they can show it is necessary).
A reminder that the Dunbar and District has it’s own all terrain mobility buggy thanks to The People’s Postcode Trust.
This buggy can carry anyone up to 13.5 stones and has beach wheels so that you can get out and about the beaches and rough terrain.
Use of the buggy is free and can be signed out to take on holidays etc.
