Students at the University of Edinburgh have made some suggestions regarding the Easter Road area. This work was led by Dr Tahl Kaminer, Lecturer in Architectural Design and Theory.
Kirkland argues the case for a new cultural initiative in the area, whereas Garcia and Nair propose an ‘industrial heritage’ route from Easter Road to Broughton/Pilrig with new hubs.

Hibernian Community Foundation, the charity arm of Hibernian FC, has launched Game Changer, an ambitious Public Social Partnership in collaboration with many partners, chief among them NHS Lothian and Edinburgh City Council.
‘The aim is to unlock the power and passion associated with football and to make greater use of all Hibernian’s physical, cultural and professional assets, to deliver a better, healthier future for the most vulnerable, disenfranchised or disadvantaged in our communities.’
Please see the the original post (made on 2 February 2014) for background.
On 11 September 2015, Lidl submitted a full planning application (15/04194/FUL) which appears to occupy a substantially larger footprint and with more parking/loading and retail space than signalled when Lidl representatives presented to LCCC in 2014 and – apparently – to local residents earlier this year. Objections and comments need to be submitted by 16 October 2015.

Edinburgh Council is consulting on the draft Leith Economic Framework. This will last 8 weeks, then a finalised version will go to Edinburgh Council’s Economy Committee on 28 April 2015. Edinburgh Council will then develop the “Priority Areas for Council Action” into an action plan with allocated responsibilities and timescales, to fit with the timetable for the overall operational plan for the Economic Development Service.
Alongside exploration of alternative options, Edinburgh Council will continue to examine options for the Leith Docks area as a hub for renewables manufacturing.
