Picardy Place public information events

(adapted from a post on Edinburgh Council’s website)

Public information events will take place

  • on Tuesday, 21 November from 10am to 7pm at the City Art Centre, Market Street
  • Wednesday, 22 November from 3pm to 7pm at Broughton St Mary’s Parish Church, Bellevue Crescent.

At these events, you can hear from the Council on how plans have evolved since their inception.

Participants will be shown refinements already made to proposals based on feedback from a series of public events held in September, including increased provision for pedestrians and cyclists.

Views will also be sought on the piece of land at the top of Leith Walk, where a roundabout currently sits. Feedback will be used to inform the final designs, which are expected to be discussed by the Transport and Environment Committee at the beginning of next year.

Picardy Place plans stirred up

Following on from Edinburgh citizens simply being told how Picardy Place will change, without any opportunity for making their own input:
