There are many ways for people to contribute. The programme includes
- Call for Ideas: Between January and March 2020, the Scottish Government (SG) will have an open call for ideas. SG will be particularly interested in responses to a series of questions we have developed to help frame discussions.
- NPF4 Scotplan 2050 Roadshow: SG is organising a programme of events across the country to give people the opportunity to consider key questions on the NPF. The events will be informal and participative. The programme will be set out on www.transformingplanning.scot.
- Meetings, seminars and conferences: SG will look to respond positively to requests for attendance at events to inform and involve stakeholders in developing the scope and content of NPF4
- Community Grant Scheme: SG will support communities to engage locally through a small grants scheme to assist them in considering the scope and format of NPF4.
- Resource pack: To help facilitate discussion, SG will provide materials pitched at a range of audiences to help people engage.

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.
You can complete the survey here https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/YVDQM8T Continue reading

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.
