No Cold Calling Zones are designed to tackle bogus caller and rogue trader offences by deterring uninvited callers from attending homes.

There are now over 100 NCC zones set up in the Capital, with Cramond Glebe Gardens the newest area to be included.

Constable Paul Greenslade said: “Zones like these help to give residents the confidence to refuse uninvited callers.”
