The City of Edinburgh Council is conducting a community consultation to determine the views of local people with regard to the potential future ownership of lands at Craighouse and Easter Craiglockart.
The Council have laid out 5 ownership options for the community to consider, these are:
We would urge you to go to the Council’s website and vote for Option 4a. You can do this by clicking this link, and following the consultation instructions through to the page with tick box voting options.
The Common Ground Association website was officially launched on Friday 10th August 2012. Be a part of this exciting community initiative and sign up your support. Big thanks to Lindsay Snedden of Lunaria for donating his time to the creation of the website.
Willie entertained around 30 local residents in a very informative walk around the Craiglockhart woods explaining the benefits of community woodlands management. A further 20 residents enjoyed a presentation on the vision of Craighouse woodland community ownership and overwhelmingly endorsed and signed up to the initiative. Let us know if you would like similar presentations for your organisations to widen understanding and support.
Robin had a very positive meeting with Councillors Andrew Burns and Gavin Corbett to discuss how the City of Edinburgh Council will support the local community in managing and owning the woodland and open space around the Craighouse campus. They are up for it and a meeting with all the key stakeholders is being arranged at the end of August 2012. We will keep you posted.
