The Cockburn Association (The Edinburgh Civic Trust)

This body exists to protect and enhance the beauty of Edinburgh. Its work includes

  • protecting Edinburgh’s historic skyline
  • supporting ‘repair and reuse’ of historic buildings
  • the development and proper use of sustainable transport systems, with priority given to public transport, cycling and pedestrian environments in Edinburgh

On Monday 21 march, Marion Williams, director of the CA, spoke to Leith Central CC about how the two bodies could work together to influence the forthcoming local development plan. Both LCCC and CA wish brownfield sites to be used before any more encroachment on Edinburgh’s greenbelt occurs.
