August consultations: Powderhall site and St John’s Place crossing

Powderhall

A reminder that later this month (20th), a public consultation including an architectural model will be shown regarding the former Powerdhall waste site between Bonnington Road and St Mark’s Park. More info can be found at consultationhub.edinburgh.gov.uk/sfc/powderhall

St john’s Place (near Leith Links)

(adapted from an email from the City of Edinburgh Council)

A crossing assessment was recently undertaken on Links Place at the junction of Johns Place and Elbe Street. Our intention is to tighten up the radius of the left turn into Johns Place to slow traffic and to construct a pedestrian refuge island at this point.

We wish to gather both your and local opinions on the location and type of crossing proposed at this site. To achieve this we have created an online consultation which can be found at: consultationhub.edinburgh.gov.uk/sfc/johns-pl-elbe-st-ped-crossing-improvements

Next meeting

Leith Central Community Council’s next public meeting will be held on Monday the 20th August, with an agenda to be published ASAP. Please visit our Meeting Papers page for more info.
