Like many other concerned public groups the community council submitted an objection to the proposed power station. The Forth Energy plan is now with Scottish Government and 1800 objections were received by the closing date of 11 March. City of Edinburgh Council, Scottish Natural Heritage and SEPA who are statutary consultees have a longer time frame to lodge any objections they may have. The council planning committee who will decide the city councils position hope to meet in May and will invite members of Forth Energy and local residents involved in the campaign to prevent the power station. They will be given time to speak for and against the proposal. LLCC LETTER FINAL VERSION

The first snowdrop

the first snowdropWinter’s not over yet, but good to see the first signs of last year’s bulb planting efforts, where around 200 local school children joined Leith Links Community Council to plant another 7,000 crocus and snowdrop bulbs. We worked mostly in the area in the centre of Leith Links West, around the millennium Park plaque.
