FOWLb, working with the Edinburgh Tool Library is going to clean and varnish the three benches opposite the Truva Cafe.
They are going to start on Thursday 7th November so if you want to be involved then come along at 11am to the Tool Library. That’s in Custom Lane at the opposite end to the cafe. (Custom Lane is behind the Custom House, in Commercial St.)
The first job will be to move the benches round to Custom Lane. It is expected the the work will take several Thursdays to do all three benches so if you can’t manage on the 7th please email Fowlb. They’ll tell you how work is progressing so you can get involved later.

(adapted from an email from Edinburgh Council)
As you may know, the Council is introducing three new bus lane enforcement cameras around Edinburgh. One of these locations is on Commercial Street which is within the boundary of your Community Council area.
The camera has now gone live and we will be issuing warning notices for two weeks to motorists who incorrectly drive within the bus lane during operational hours. An extra week will allow additional time for notices to be delivered, before charge notices start being issued from 17 June 2019.
There are no changes to the layout or operational times of the bus lanes as a result of this project. However, additional yellow warning notices are in place on approach to the camera to inform motorists. A press release has also been issued with further social media promotion planned.
