**The ivy on Liberton Kirk has gone viral on the Internet this year. We haven’t put a link to it here as you should go to see it live!… Och well! Here by popular demand is a link to the pic in The Grauniad. But the byline that the previous Kirk burnt down is fake news. It was replaced because it was too small; in those days the heritors made sure that infrastructure kept up with development!
** Consultation: Extension of bus lane hours. Closes 22 Nov
** Consultation: Tourism Strategy. Closes 30 Nov
** Consultation on W Princes Street Gardens to 1 Dec
** This what Liberton looked like from the air in 1940.

New Local Development Plan
The City of Edinburgh is embarking on the much delayed and lengthy process of developing a new Local Development Plan. This will ultimately replace the current plan, adopted in 2016. The Development Plan Scheme outlining the process can be downloaded from HERE. This sets out (on p7) the full timetable, which hopefully ends with the adoption of the new plan in Feb 2022.

The process starts with what used to be called the Main Issues Report, now styled Choices for City Plan 2030. This is to be published early in December and will set out …er the main issues and alternative solutions. This will be followed by a 12 week consultation period (9 Dec – 28 Feb).

We expect that, as we did for the 2016 plan, we will be organising one or more drop-in sessions to hear your views after we have all seen the proposals and the reasons for them. The City is also organising events and, for our area, the ‘promotion’ in the Cameron Toll Shopping Centre on Saturday, 25 Jan, 11am-3pm, is the most relevant. If you are not familiar with planning, you will find it helpful to read the above-mentioned Scheme and perhaps to browse through the Development Planning pages on this site (look on the sidebar). We will link to the Choices document from here when it is published.

Click HERE for our summer newsletter. It was distributed in the Gracemount area and paper copies were available in Liberton Kirk Centre and elsewhere. We didn’t manage to produce an autumn newsletter because of our re-election but hope to have something for you in the winter. Links to earlier newsletters are under the Minutes tab.
