Together for Edinburgh (a consortium of City of Edinburgh Council, Edinburgh St James [i.e. developers TH Real Estate], Laing O’Rourke, and the Scottish Futures Trust) has invited ‘important stakeholders’ (i.e. locals) to be told ‘what [the changes to Picardy Place] mean for you’.
Sessions will be at Valvona & Crolla Vincaffè, 11 Multrees Walk
Friday 22 September (4pm to 7pm)
Saturday 23 September (10am to 4pm)
The Spurtle is concerned that ‘there is no mention on the invitation of you telling them what you think about it, or of contributing to planning democracy by describing what you’d like to see at the start of the design process. As far as we can see, it will be all one-way traffic’.
