Clean Air Day – today

Planning Edinburgh blogged yesterday

Every year, air pollution causes up to 36,000 deaths in the UK.  Poor air quality causes heart and lung disease and is linked to low birth weight and children’s lung development.

Thursday 17 June is Clean Air Day – the UK’s largest air pollution campaign that aims to bring people together to build awareness of the actions we can all do to tackle it.

Read more on the Planning Edinburgh blog.

Leith low-traffic neighbourhood consultations (CEC’s actual consultation)

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.

Follow this link (https://consultationhub.edinburgh.gov.uk/sfc/low-traffic-neighbourhoods/) to access CEC’s Leith LTN consultation.

There are also workshops – register via Eventbrite as follows.

Leith low-traffic neighbourhood consultation

Message from LHNCC’s secretary

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.
