The Community Council has been engaged with the consultation and planning application process for this scheme for many years, and most recently hosted representatives of the scheme and the City of Edinburgh Council at a GDCC Public Meeting in August 2020, and a discussion with residents in September 2020. The minutes of those meetings are available on our ‘Minutes’ page. We also have continued to raise residents’ concerns and queries sent to us with the City of Edinburgh Council throughout winter 2020/2021.
