Police Scotland is working with partners at Victim Support Scotland on a project to ensure that people affected by crime receive the best and most appropriate aftercare which meets their needs, particularly around the point a Police Officer provides information to an individual about a support service.
The project is keen to hear the public’s views particularly those of survivors, and witnesses of crime and a survey has been launched which will be bolstered by one to one interviews with people who would like to take part – you can indicate this at the end of the survey.
Responses will support the development of valuable insights to improve the experiences of people in times of distress.
Please help Police Scotland by sharing the survey link below so that as many people as possible in Scotland’s diverse communities have the opportunity to take part and have their say. The survey should only take about 10 minutes to complete and is open until the end of August.
Please note this is from the Trams to Newhaven team. LCCC will respond in due course – watch this space.
From Tuesday 13 April the project will commence the Traffic Regulation Order public consultation process (TRO). A TRO details the nature and extent of how our roads are used and managed such as road closures, restrictions on turning movements and the position of parking and loading spaces.
The purpose of the TRO process is to invite comment and objections on the parking and loading arrangements being proposed and any changes to moving traffic requirements and entry/exit from streets. Only measures presented within the traffic order may be objected to.
Edinburgh Council are finishing a bunch of parking consultations this Sunday (14th March), two of which are in the Leith Central area.
The following maps use the following key;
PINK – Permit Holder Bay BROWN – Shared Use Bay BLUE – Disabled Bay GREEN – City Car Club
We advise clicking on the links below to see them in better detail and put your thoughts in, whether positive, negative or indifferent!
Streets just east of Easter Road including Albion Gardens, Drum Terrace and St. Clair Road are set to get new permit-holder bays (pink on the map) along them, while other roads are set to recieve some changes too.
LeithChooses is holding a feedback night on Tuesday 9 March (6pm) and running an online questionnaire. Details follow:
LeithChooses 2021 Feedback Night, 9 March 6pm.
The LeithChooses Steering Group is always looking for feedback from the community, after each participatory budgeting event.
You are warmly invited to attend a ‘Feedback Night’ meeting, online. This will be on Tuesday 9th March at 6pm.
Each year, LeithChooses has found that although not many people can make it to the Feedback night, those that DO come always provide a tremendously valuable input. As this year has been so different, LeithChooses would especially like to hear from you about what you feel went well – and what didn’t – at LeithChooses 2021.
Sadly, there can be no cups of tea or Tunnocks tea cakes, but LeithChooses hope we can have an informal discussion and listen to your views. Do join!
LeithChooses would like to glean your individual thoughts on the £eith Chooses 2021 experience through a questionnaire.
LeithChooses would appreciate if you would complete this questionnaire, and share it with anyone who has a view on the process.
Please click here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/leithch2021. It will be live for one month. LeithChooses is keen to refine and improve what it does so your thoughts are most welcome; LeithChooses does listen carefully!
Please do not hesitate to contact Caroline Lamond (Caroline.Lamond@edinburgh.gov.uk) if you have any questions about the feedback night or the survey; Caroline is happy to help.
The Water of Leith Conservation Trust, who help look after the river from the Pentlands to the Leith Shore, are asking people who use the strip of land next to the Water Leith (formally known as Coalie Park) what it should be used for.
The interactive exhibition will be live on this website (https://steads-place.com) from 12 noon on November 5th, with members of Drum’s design team available to respond to any questions received by email until 8 pm.
There are currently many opportunities to get involved in environmental and climate-change activities. Check out some or all of these posts on Leith Central, Leith Harbour & Newhaven and New Town & Broughton CCs’ websites
