Planning Committee today

Attended Planning Sub-Committee today, to speak against the proposed approval of the application at St.Kentigern's Church --- canal-cyclists will know it well :-)

I'm certainly not opposed (and neither, do I detect, are residents) to the sympathetic re-use of this empty church - but what's come forward just isn't appropriate and will cause longer-term problems if approved.

Transport Committee yesterday approved the Officers' recommendations (see pages 4 and 5), thus removing some of the South Edinburgh streets form the proposed 20mph zone --- very varied views received from all quarters on this issue.

It is though now going to a formal Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) and support/objections can be formally voiced through that process.
