Hutchison and Chesser Community Council meeting this evening - including a brief presentation by officers on the proposals for a Skateboard-Park within Saughton Park.
Despite some concern about the 'exact' location of the Skateboard-Park, I felt there was general support for the principal of locating the facility within Saughton Park.
Various issues rightly raised as a prerequisite for any final implementation: CCTV needs to be installed; crossing on Balgreen Road needs to be finalised; toilet facilities need to be available (and adequate!). Hopefully, they can all be delivered as part of any overall package ...
... watch this space for when the detailed planning application is finally submitted in a few weeks time.
Separately, there was also some discussion about the ongoing success of the Estate walkabouts ... I can't resist publishing this picture - I should say that this is NOT a caption contest :-((
