Gorgie Dalry Community Council voted to support the Scotmid development on Gorgie Road after several in-depth discussions with the developers and consultation with the local residents who attended our meetings. The design was modified and improved during the course of these discussions.
We are all volunteers and based our decision on the information available to us at the time.
Several local residents attended our meeting on the 1st April to express their opposition to the Scotmid Development. After listening to their concerns, we chose to meet to discuss the situation. We were, however, advised that 7 days notice would have to be given for a properly constituted meeting of the community council that would be able to reverse a previous decision (if based on incorrect, erroneous or incomplete information). As the final date for planning submissions is the 8th of April, we were not able to vote again on the issue.
We had advertised the Scotmid consultation in November:
And posted in advance the agendas of two of the meetings where Scotmid attended.
