Fountainbridge Canalside Initiative 'Brewing New Life’ report

I mentioned the Fountainbridge Canalside Initiative (FCI) event back in February, which I managed to briefly attend ...

... well, they published their report this afternoon - it can be found here - and there are wider details about the Fountainbridge Canalside site on a new website the Group has set up, which is here.

I managed to get along to the report-launch, and was very impressed with the grounded-optimism that all those involved appear to be displaying: yes, lofty ambitions for the site, but also a recognition that there will be elements of commercial development alongside the residential.

Getting that balance right will be the challenge - but the FCI Report provides some first-class input for that ensuing debate.
