234 Easter Road: extension to deadline for comments

(adapted from an email from Edinburgh Council)

The period for commenting on or objecting to the planning application 18/03989/FUL has been extended to 27 September 2018. This application is about allowing ‘loading and unloading operations to be restricted to between 06.30 AM and 22.00 PM Monday to Friday; 07.00 AM and 22.00 PM Saturdays; and 08.00AM and 22.00 PM Sundays. Storetrading hours shall be restricted to 08.00 AM and 22.00 PM.’

The extension is because ‘there was … a problem with the neighbour notification process’. Edinburgh Council are ‘reviewing the process that resulted in such a short period of time to comment’
