CEC emailed LHNCC and many others on 7 May about an extension of the consultation-period on the draft place-brief for Leith Walk/Halmyre Street.
I may have written to you previously to tell you we were looking for views on the draft place brief for Leith Walk / Halmyre Street. The place brief sets out a vision and key principles to inform the design of future development on the site.
Due to the Covid-19 lockdown the online consultation has been extended until 1 June 2020. There is more time therefore to give us your views on the draft brief if you haven’t already done so. Here is the link to the consultation: https://consultationhub.edinburgh.gov.uk/sfc/leith-walk-halmyre-street-site-brief.
There are links to the draft brief and some supporting documents including a summary of the previous consultations.
We hope to hear from you

Edinburgh’s Licensing Board is consulting on the terms of a new draft statement of Licensing Policy, and its Assessment of Overprovision in the Board’s area. Details of the consultations are available on the Consultation Hub on the Council’s website at the following locations:
Responses to the consultations should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
The consultations remain open until 5 October 2018.
(adapted from an email from Edinburgh Council. NB this is an Edinburgh Council exercise, but LHNCC is happy to disseminate information that will affect its citizens.)
Edinburgh Council is asking for feedback on its initial ideas for meeting the continuing pressures on Council services and budgets.
Since 2012 Edinburgh Council has saved £240 million, but it expects it will need to save at least £106 million more between now and 2022/23.
No decisions have been taken yet and feedback will shape the long-term plans as well as the more detailed proposals for balancing the budget in February for 2019/20.
Please complete the online survey or try your hand at prioritising services and balancing our budgets by 7 December. You can also read Edinburgh Council’s ideas Planning for change and delivering services and fill in a print survey which will be available in libraries and Council offices from 15 October.
Please share this information far and wide.

Following on from a previous post, there is a survey on Edinburgh Council’s consultation hub.
This covers the three components of the ‘Connecting our City, Transforming our Places‘ project ‘will help achieve the Edinburgh 2050 vision; a fairer, thriving, connected and inspired city’. These components are:
- Edinburgh City Centre Transformation– an action plan for a vibrant and people-focussed capital city centre to improve community, economic and cultural life, working to the following vision. ‘An exceptional city centre that is for all, a place for people to live, work, visit and play. A place that is for the future, enriched by the legacy of the past.’
- The City Mobility Plan– setting citywide transport policy and actions based around the following vision. ‘Edinburgh will have a cleaner, safer, inclusive and accessible transport system delivering healthier, thriving and fairer capital city, and a higher quality of life for Edinburgh residents’.
- Low Emission Zones– the Council is taking a comprehensive approach to developing LEZs as a step towards protecting Edinburgh’s citizens from the harms of poor air quality, in line with Scottish Government priorities to introduce LEZs in Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, and Glasgow by 2020.
As with the previous post, this is an Edinburgh Council exercise.
