Hutchison and Chesser Community Council

Hutchison and Chesser Community Council this evening ... local MSP Sarah Boyack was the invited speaker and gave a full update on events in the Holyrood Parliament over the last few months.

... thought it interesting that Housing issues dominated the questions that followed her talk - yet more proof, if it were needed, of the growing pressure on existing stock.

The other main topic of discussion was the Council's proposal to locate a 'Skateboard Park' within Saughton Park ... pretty mixed views from those in attendance. Whilst many accepted the 'need' for such a facility, there was some disquiet about its actual location within Saughton Park - in particular, why it couldn't be sited right next to Saughton Sports Complex?

... more local debate to follow for sure.
