Planning Edinburgh blogged yesterday
Every year, air pollution causes up to 36,000 deaths in the UK. Poor air quality causes heart and lung disease and is linked to low birth weight and children’s lung development.
Thursday 17 June is Clean Air Day – the UK’s largest air pollution campaign that aims to bring people together to build awareness of the actions we can all do to tackle it.

LeithChooses is holding a feedback night on Tuesday 9 March (6pm) and running an online questionnaire. Details follow:
LeithChooses 2021 Feedback Night, 9 March 6pm.
The LeithChooses Steering Group is always looking for feedback from the community, after each participatory budgeting event.
You are warmly invited to attend a ‘Feedback Night’ meeting, online. This will be on Tuesday 9th March at 6pm.
Each year, LeithChooses has found that although not many people can make it to the Feedback night, those that DO come always provide a tremendously valuable input. As this year has been so different, LeithChooses would especially like to hear from you about what you feel went well – and what didn’t – at LeithChooses 2021.
Sadly, there can be no cups of tea or Tunnocks tea cakes, but LeithChooses hope we can have an informal discussion and listen to your views. Do join!
Join via Eventbrite by clicking here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/eithchooses-2021-feedback-night-tickets-144028373743
LeithChooses would like to glean your individual thoughts on the £eith Chooses 2021 experience through a questionnaire.
LeithChooses would appreciate if you would complete this questionnaire, and share it with anyone who has a view on the process.
Please click here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/leithch2021. It will be live for one month. LeithChooses is keen to refine and improve what it does so your thoughts are most welcome; LeithChooses does listen carefully!
Please do not hesitate to contact Caroline Lamond (Caroline.Lamond@edinburgh.gov.uk) if you have any questions about the feedback night or the survey; Caroline is happy to help.

Planning Edinburgh: water in the city of Edinburgh
Planning Edinburgh says
Climate change is going to impact on our lives in more ways than we can even imagine. In response to this, new developments and existing buildings in Edinburgh will have to change in order to support the needs of people. We will also need to consider how public realm, open space, infrastructure and streets are designed, agreed, constructed and maintained.
One of the ways we are preparing Edinburgh for these changes is through our Vision for Management of Water in the City of Edinburgh.
There are a few announcements likely to interest to LHNCC residents:
Scottish Government: Transforming Planning
Planning in Scotland is changing. From new ways to get involved in shaping great places, to the creation of the next national plan for Scotland, learn about our work to date and the next steps.
Edinburgh Council: parking controls survey
