Beer-garden in Leith: Wetherspoon’s open-day

(adapted from an article in the Edinburgh Evening News)

As the site in question is outside LCCC’s area, it is unlikely that LCCC will comment if and when the proposal described below proceeds to a formal planning stage. LCCC also notes how a similar application for the same site was handled in 2018.

J D Wetherspoon is hoping to transform a redundant piece of land on Duke Street into an outdoor drinking space for the Foot of the Walk, which runs behind the frontage of the site.

What: A drop-in event where the project team will be on hand to provide more information about the proposals and answer any questions.

Where: Foot Of The Walk pub

When: Thursday 16 January, 3pm until 8pm

Environment projects drop-in

(adapted from an email from Leith Neighbourhood Network)

What: drop-in event to ask local people for their suggestions on projects which could be taken forward to help improve the local environment

Where: Leith Community Centre

When: Wednesday 5 February 2020, 3pm – 6pm

If you can’t attend: download the form, add your idea, and take it to the library or community centre.

In addition to the drop-in event, Officers from the Leith housing team are looking to deliver additional local walkabouts with tenants to identify potential projects, which will be promoted alongside the drop-in event. Once we’ve spoken to local people, we hope to have a refreshed list of potential projects for funding which we can revisit at the next Leith NN meeting (end of Feb time). We would also appreciate your support for the event by telling other people about it, or by coming along and talking to us about any ideas that you might have for an environmental improvement project. Officers from the Locality service teams (Housing, Transport & Environment and Lifelong Learning) are looking forward to the event and discussing any ideas you or other local residents may have.
