(LCCC’s minutes secretary apologises for the late publication of these approved minutes. He was unable to attend the April meeting, and so his normal cycle was interrupted. However, there is no difference in content (apart from correcting a few punctuation errors) between the record below and the draft March minutes published here: https://leithccc.files.wordpress.com/2019/04/2019_03_18-draft-v1.pdf.)

The Old Royal High School is under threat!
Please help us win the planning appeal by pledging a contribution!
Thomas Hamilton’s Royal High School, built between 1825-9, is one of the most important Greek Revival buildings in Europeand was one of the buildings to inspire the moniker of ‘Athens of the North’.

You can directly respond to SESplan’s report here. If you do so, please respond as an individual, not on behalf of LCCC.
However, the Cockburn Association says
The Cockburn Association (Edinburgh Civic Trust) is preparing its response for the 2nd South East Scotland Strategic Development Plan (SESplan2) Main Issues Report (MIR).
It would be most helpful if we could include your views on some of the key issues in our response. These are outlined on the attached survey form. Although the form requests a name/postcode, your views will not be attributed, as the intention is to collate and summarise the survey responses for inclusion in our representations on the MIR to the six Local Authorities that have prepared this plan, which include the City of Edinburgh Council.
If you are able to complete the survey, we would be grateful if you could return it to us by Friday 28 August 2015
Please download the CA’s survey from here.
