LCCC annual report, 21 May 2018

Another year has passed in which Leith Walk, our much-loved and iconic high street, continues to dominate our meetings. Depending who you’re talking to, Leith Walk, once designated as a pedestrian-friendly boulevard or, more recently, a dual carriageway with pedestrian-deterrent paving (if the current tram designs go ahead), continues to be a political football.

Picardy Place is changing: ‘what it means for you’

(with thanks to The Spurtle for alerting us to this)

Together for Edinburgh (a consortium of City of Edinburgh Council, Edinburgh St James [i.e. developers TH Real Estate], Laing ORourke, 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’.
