Reports from NTBCC Committees – as discussed at 11th October NTBCC meeting

Below are the reports submitted by the various NTBCC Committee conveners to NTBCC members prior to the October meeting. The key aspects of these reports were part of the Occtober NTBCC meeting but due to time pressures, not all of the content was discussed. The following reports cover Transport, Events (& other topics falling under the Environment Committee e.g. 2030 Climate Strategy) & Planning.

Although the key topics were discussed, there is much additional detail in these reports. If there are issues raised in them that were not covered, please contact us via  www.ntbcc.org.uk/contact/  and we will try to respond.

Thse will be included in the Minutes of the meeting – to be published officially in mid November.

N.B. This is a long read (10 minutes+)

Help Required : BELLEVUE CRESCENT : Urban Conservation Coursework Survey

Adapted from an email from Shaheera Pesnani, MSc Architectural Conservation, University of Edinburgh 

“We are a group of university students pursuing a MSc in Architectural Conservation at the University of Edinburgh. Since last semester we have been taking a course on Urban Conservation, and as a part of our Urban Conservation coursework, we are analysing the area of Bellevue Crescent, for which we require your help. We believe that the voice of the community is extremely important in any proposed development or recommended urban conservation strategy. The questions in the survey seek to gauge information on demographics, housing, social aspects, place, travel, and any further recommendations you may have.

We are looking for people living in either Bellevue Crescent, Bellevue Rd, Bellevue Pl., Bellevue Terrace, Bellevue St., Cochran Terrace, Cornwallis Pl., E. Claremont St., E. London St., Drummond Place, London St., Melgund Terrace, Rodney St., and Scotland St. to fill out our survey.”

The link to the survey is  HERE

We have been advised that it should not take you more than a minute or two to complete (although having completed the survey, this may be optimistic!).

“We are extremely grateful for your help. Should you have any further information regarding the survey or our project, please feel free to reach out to Shaheera Pesnani s2120046@ed.ac.uk
