Edinburgh Airport sustainability survey

adapted from an email from Edinburgh airport

Edinburgh Airport is currently developing a new Sustainability Strategy for the airport, and it wants to hear your views. Your feedback will form part of the materiality review which helps us understand which issues are most important to the business and its stakeholders.

Materiality is a concept that is central to a credible Sustainability Strategy. It is how Edinburgh Airport understands what topics have an impact on its ability to create, preserve or erode economic, environmental and social value for Edinburgh Airport, its stakeholders, and society at large. These topics then form the basis of what the airport will focus its sustainability efforts on and consequently what we will report on.

Achieving this cannot be done overnight, and Edinburgh Airport is working closely with BeSustainable who have already provided training sessions in October and hosted workshops and interviews last week with a variety of stakeholders. Edinburgh Airport wants you to have your say on sustainability at the airport. it understand that different issues matter to different stakeholders. To do this, Edinburgh Airport invites you to take part in a survey which asks for your views on sustainability issues for society and for Edinburgh Airport. The survey will be open until 6 January 2020.

Notification of filming – The Shore

adapted from a communication from Switch 2 Productions Ltd (31 Bath Rd, Edinburgh, EH6 7AH)

I am writing to advise you of forthcoming filming for a Netflix feature film titled The Princess Switch, Switched Again which is the follow up to the hugely successful The Princess Switch currently available to watch on Netflix.

The film is a family friendly Christmas movie starring Vanessa Hudgens and is set in a fictional country in which our lead characters, a baker and a princess swap places.

With the support of the council and film office we are filming for a short period around Edinburgh, and on Saturday 4th January we are filming exterior and interior scenes at Mimi’s Bakehouse.

We have applied for a temporary traffic restriction order on the following streets in order to park close to set for preparation, filming and the strike of the location, for the filming day (Saturday 4th January 2020) we will have a stop and hold in place on the shore itself between Tolbooth Wynd and Shore Place.

The filming schedule has been arranged as follows:

Parking restrictions: excluding disabled bays

FRIDAY 3rd January 2020 from 0700 for Location Prep

SATURDAY 4th January 2020 from 0600 – 2000 for Filming

Stop/Go of traffic:

SATURDAY 4th January between 8am and 11am

  • SHORE – Between Tolbooth Wynd and Shore Place. there will be a series of short holds of traffic which will last no more than two minutes, traffic will be allowed to flow for significant periods of time between holds to avoid congestion.

May I thank you in advance for your help and assistance in the making of the film, we are looking forward to filming in the city and anticipate the project to be a huge success which could not be achieved without the help of residents and business.
