Public Toilets on Leith Links

Hurrah! The temporary public toilet block for spring / summer on Leith Links has now been delivered and should be linked up for plumbing and power very shortly.

Public toilets are vital for everyone especially as the days get longer and warmer, and more people spend longer out of doors in the park. Public toilets also empower the community as a whole, because community events involving large numbers of people can be organised.

As last year, the toilet block will be manned by a Council attendant. We are very grateful to these guys for their work and we ask the community to treat them with respect. However, they cannot be expected  to do ‘everything’, especially if it involves putting themselves at risk. If serious anti social behaviour occurs in the park while they are present they will call the police.

 

Next Meeting, Monday 25th April 6:30 online. Come and ask questions!

The next meeting of the Leith Links Community Council will be held on Monday 25th April at 6:30pm, online (Microsoft Teams). We have interesting guest speakers – do come along!

Leith Connections / Low Traffic Neighbourhood – what is happening?

We will be hearing from Miles Wilkinson of Edinburgh City Council about the current state of the plans for Leith Connections / Leith Low Traffic Neighbourhood (LTN). Do you know how this scheme is likely to affect you?

We need a bus for Leith Links!

And we have John White of Lothian Buses also attending the meeting to discuss bus route issues, in the context of the tram, and the proposed LTN. How do you feel about the fact that we don’t have ANY buses just now on the north side of Leith Links (where many hundreds – eventually thousands – of new residents are moving in)?

This is a great chance to ask questions and also to let these people know what members of our local community think, and need / want.

Would you like to join the meeting?

As always, our meetings are open to interested members of the public. If you wish to attend, please email contact@leithlinkscc.org.uk and you will be sent an invitation / link for the meeting.

Leith’s Public Assets

Not everyone can lay their hands on a paper copy of The Leither magazine, each month.

Here, therefore is a digital copy of an important article by Councillor Gordon Munro about the significant public assets that belong to Leith in law (Edinburgh Boundaries Extension and Tramways Act 1920).  For example, the old Town Hall, now the Police Station, and the libraries.

https://www.leithermagazine.com/leither142feat/debts-to-leith

He suggests that Leithers need to be vigilant about protecting and maintaining possession of these public assets. Noted, Councillor Munro, noted!

New Bin Hubs

If any local residents in the Leith Links area have concerns about the new bin hubs being rolled out currently, please get in touch (contact@leithlinkscc.org.uk) as soon as possible.

At our recent meeting we were told by the Council official responsible that although rollout of the hubs had been delayed, they would be taking place over the next few weeks. You may see painting on the kerb showing locations, and chrome bars being installed (to corral the bins) and some old bins may disappear.

Unfortunately, there does not seem to have been communication with local residents, so some of you may be surprised or perturbed by the new set-up. Please let us know and we will pass on your concerns, and try to keep you ‘in the loop’ if we can get replies from the Council.
