Event description

Description

The Save Leith Walk campaign would like to invite the community of Leith to a Community Planning Workshop in order to develop an alternative vision for the land on Stead's Place as well as the 106-154 Leith Walk red sandstone building. This event will be an opportunity for the community of Leith to voice their wishes and needs in regards to development.

The information gathered on this day will then be used to write a planning brief that could be used by interested parties to develop community-led alternative plans for the land to the west of Leith Walk, adjacent to and including 106 – 154 representing the needs and demands of the community.

The Community Planning Workshop will consist of two sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. This is to allow maximum debate on the relevant issues around the area and give enough time to various speakers.

The Morning Session will be focused on issues surrounding the use of the red sandstone building, e.g. how it can play an important role in continuing to develop the vibrancy and culture of Leith.

The Afternoon Session will be focused on issues surrounding the usage of the land at the back, e.g. how this could cater to a range of different needs for green spaces, housing and business.

If you would like to have your voice heard in the development of your community, please help us by attending this workshop. You can book tickets for the morning and/or afternoon session. We are expecting a high demand for this workshop, so please only book those sessions that you can commit to attend and let us know if this changes to allow someone else to attend.
