Depending on the volume of feedback received, it is hoped that a final LEZ scheme can be formally published towards the end of 2021 and agreed by the Council and Scottish Ministers early in 2022 before it is implemented in May 2022.
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.’
