Is there a way to restrict page creation access *without* restricting permissions to edit?

I would like to enforce a space-wide restriction for a particular group to prevent them from adding new pages within the space, but some of those users still need to be able to edit existing pages. Any advice on how to go about that?

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

No, there is no difference between "create" and "edit" in Confluence.  I see that this is a bit counter-intuitive, but it does make sense - if someone can put whatever they want into an existing page, totally overwriting it all, what's the point stopping them creating their own page?  Create and edit are pretty much the same thing in a wiki, there's no point restriting a person to one or the other.
