The City of Edinburgh has just launched an extensive stakeholder consultation about “how Edinburgh manages its public outside space for events, filming and festivals . . based around key principles/guidelines that will apply across the whole of Edinburgh.”
Leading our discussion on the Public Spaces Management Plan will be:
Cliff Hague, Emeritus Professor of Planning and Spatial Development at Heriot-Watt University, Chair of the Cockburn Association: Pitfalls and potholes: managing Edinburgh’s public spaces
Mariana Trusson, former Chair of the Edinburgh Sustainable Development Partnership (ESDP): Environmental protection, carbon neutrality and sustainability: events and festivals in public spaces
This will be followed by a contribution by a leading City of Edinburgh councillor or official.
Jim Scanlon (Leith Links Community Council) and another community councillor will talk about local issues with the PSMP.
This meeting is open to the public, but priority will be given to questions from community councillors.
The meeting will be recorded and may be published later. Please note that by joining the meeting you are giving your consent for the meeting to be recorded.
