The fight continues to prevent Forth Energy’s plan for a large scale biomass plant in Leith Docks. Forth Energy asked for a further delay for details going before City Planners until June 2012. In May the Edinburgh public go to the polls to vote in or out our current City Administration and if like me you are against the power plant take every opportunity to ask candidates what their stance is. Encourage your friends who live in other wards in Edinburgh to do the same because the elected politicians who will sit on the planning committee in June will come from across the City not just Leith.

Although Waterworld closed earlier this month the campaign by Splashback to open the pool again is still alive. Splashback would like to investigate the possibility of a community buy out. The current closing date for the sale of the site is 8th February but activists would like this delayed by 6 months so they can build a business case and try to attract alternative funding. Members of the group attended the community council meeting asking for support to a motion being put to a full CityCouncil meeting on 2nd February. Leith Links Community Council agreed to offer our support to the proposal and also asked that the figures for running costs be made available to Splashback for their alternative business plan.
The next meeting takes place on Monday, 30th January in Duncan Place Resource Centre, Duncan Place, Leith. Meetings start at 7pm and if you live in the Leith Links area and want to improve the area pleae come along.
