The Scottish Government is currently finalising its policy position on the development of unconventional oil and gas in Scotland.
As part of that process the Scottish Government is inviting views on the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and partial Business, Regulatory Impact Assessment (BRIA) of their preferred policy position, that the Scottish Government does not support the development of unconventional oil and gas in Scotland.
These assessments are necessary before the policy position can be finalised and are the latest steps in the approach that the Scottish Government has adopted on this issue.
The following reproduces verbatim a communication from ‘Trams to Newhaven Project Team’ (email email@example.com). You might like to read Leith Central CC’s comment on this communication.
Councillors will make the decision on whether or not to proceed with the Trams to Newhaven project in March 2019.
Tenders for the project were received in early September and evaluations are ongoing.
The final stage in this process is to seek best and final offers from the bidders which will then be used to complete the Final Business Case for consideration by elected members.
It is important for the Council to have sufficient time to undertake due diligence and comprehensive evaluation of the final submissions and the Council has therefore decided to take extra time to allow this process to take place.
The Council has undertaken extensive consultation with residents and businesses in Leith and Newhaven to inform the final design of the proposed route and has proposed a £2.4m Support for Business package during the construction period.
You can view the Trams to Newhaven project designs and plans, which have been updated thanks to public feedback from consultation earlier in the summer, until Sunday 11 November on the Council’s Consultation Hub.
(adapted from an email from Edinburgh Council)
In late September Edinburgh Council wrote to all residents who use its kerbside bin service to update them on changes to their bin collection days and garden waste collections. In the letters, Edinburgh Council also included new bin collection calendars and, for residents who had signed up to Edinburgh Council’s new garden waste service, new garden waste bin permits were included.
The new collection dates and garden waste service started this week, so Edinburgh Council would be grateful if you can check your new bin calendars to ensure you are putting your bins out on the correct day. Garden waste bins may also be collected on a different day of the week to other bins. Residents can check their new bin calendars on Edinburgh Council’s website.
The changes to bin collection days is part of this year’s budget savings and will help the Council to save £500,000.
Thank you for your support.
