Edinburgh Airport is currently running its second consultation on their Airspace Change Programme. If you wish to respond to the consultation, feedback can be made via their website http://www.letsgofurther.com/ or response forms can be requested and submitted by writing to Freepost LETS GO FURTHER.
We’ve worked hard to create the best solution for all – one that meets our regulatory requirements, accommodates our necessary growth and minimises the impact on the people who live in our neighbouring communities. Our consultation is being run in accordance with the Civil Aviation Authority’s CAP725 Airspace Change Guidance. To give you confidence, we have also commissioned a Quality Assurance of our consultation process by the Consultation Institute (consultationinstitute.org).
Since the consultation opened on 30 January we have been gathering feedback via our website and freepost address and have had over 2,000 responses. As we enter the final weeks of the consultation we are inviting all with an interest in our Airspace Change Programme and flight path options to give us their views on our proposals, whatever your views.

Young people in Edinburgh are being asked to vote on projects to deliver youth work across the city. During February 2017, Edinburgh Council invited groups to apply for up to £10,000 to spend on youth work activity that will benefit young people between 11-25, either locally based or citywide.
The applications were screened at the beginning of March by a group of young people and Council officers, based on priorities that were decided by young people following a consultation in 2016.
This is the first year of a three year programme, with 60k to allocate this year, rising to over 100k in year 2, and over 500k in year 3.
A total of 16 projects will now face a public vote. It is now up to you to decide which of these projects you would like to see being delivered. If you are aged between 11-21, and live in Edinburgh, you can vote for your three preferred projects.
Voting opens at 12noon on Friday 10 March and closes at 5pm on Monday 27 March 2017.
