There are fears that misinformation is gaining “enough traction to be dangerous” amid a report that someone was assaulted for promoting the policy.

Politicians in Scotland’s capital are worried about “wild conspiracy theories” which have been spread about the concept of 20-minute neighbourhoods.

The Scottish Government says the concept aims to provide access to the majority of daily needs such as shops and schools within a 20-minute “walk, wheel or cycle”.

A report to Edinburgh City Council said their plan would give “people the choice to access more services and facilities in their local area, it is not about restricting anyone from getting to or from other parts of the city,” and help achieve green goals, while one local politician noted that “there are already 20-minute neighbourhoods in the city, they’ve probably already been here 600 years.”
