CEC emailed LCCC and many others on 7 May about an extension of the consultation-period on the draft place-brief for Leith Walk/Halmyre Street.
I may have written to you previously to tell you we were looking for views on the draft place brief for Leith Walk / Halmyre Street. The place brief sets out a vision and key principles to inform the design of future development on the site.
(LCCC apologises for slightly delayed publication of these minutes. This was caused by waiting for a response from the trams teams to some queries about the content. If you have any queries about these minutes, please contact LCCC, preferably via the comments feature at the end of this post)

Edinburgh Council is asking for feedback on its initial ideas for meeting the continuing pressures on Council services and budgets.
Since 2012 Edinburgh Council has saved £240 million, but it expects it will need to save at least £106 million more between now and 2022/23.
No decisions have been taken yet and feedback will shape the long-term plans as well as the more detailed proposals for balancing the budget in February for 2019/20.
Please complete the online surveyor try your hand at prioritising services and balancing our budgetsby 7 December. You can also read Edinburgh Council’s ideas Planning for change and delivering services and fill in a print survey which will be available in libraries and Council offices from 15 October.
Please share this information far and wide.
