Hot on the heels of the last post, CEC is running a consultation as well as AECOM. LHNCC’s web-weaver guesses (but cannot promise) that Edinburgh Council will be more interested in responses to its own consultation.
The Low Traffic Neighbourhood (LTN) Team (Leith Connections) announced that Leith LTN consultation/survey will go live on the Hub on Friday 4th July.
The Team will be running 2 public meetings for Leith LTN – one in week beginning 14th June and one in week beginning 28th June – details to be confirmed so not included in information leaflets.
I would recommend reading this and completing survey, especially as it only considers a limited area omitting section North of Commercial Street. This means that leaflets that have been distributed may not have included a large section of our CC.
VRS Limited has plans ‘a mixed use development and sustainable Build to Rent scheme’. This would be at 1 Rennie’s Isle, ‘an existing 1980s design office building that sits at the north eastern corner of Victoria Quay on Ocean Drive’
This site ‘lies just outside of the Leith Conservation Area (and the sub-zone of Old Leith and the Shore) in ‘North Leith’ just to the south of the active docks.’
VRS says ‘The design is at an early stage but we intend to submit an application for planning permission for a complete redevelopment of the building. This will include mixture of live-work apartments to rent as well as affordable housing and potential active ground floor uses.’
Please note this is from the Trams to Newhaven team. LHNCC will respond in due course – watch this space.
From Tuesday 13 April the project will commence the Traffic Regulation Order public consultation process (TRO). A TRO details the nature and extent of how our roads are used and managed such as road closures, restrictions on turning movements and the position of parking and loading spaces.
The purpose of the TRO process is to invite comment and objections on the parking and loading arrangements being proposed and any changes to moving traffic requirements and entry/exit from streets. Only measures presented within the traffic order may be objected to.
