Adapted from an email sent to the New Town & Broughton Community Council and Stockbridge & Inverleith Community Council regarding further ‘Drop-in’ information events scheduled in the next month where residents will be able to ask questions of Council officers, see details of what’s happening and importantly, find out how to comment on the new bin hub locations.
Nearest location is Broughton St Mary’s Church on 29 June (10:00am – 1:00pm) but also other possibilities.
Dear Community Councils,
The Communal Bin Review (CBR) project aims to improve recycling and waste services for those living in flats. The project will make it easier for residents to recycle by ensuring they have access to a full range of recycling bins: non-recyclable waste, food waste, glass, and mixed recycling.
As agreed by Committee, the CBR team is planning engagement with the public prior to the statutory Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) for phase 4 which also covers are within your Community Council. The feedback provided by members of the public on specific locations will be considered and accommodated where possible and in accordance with the review framework recently approved by Committee last May 2023. This will support the determination of final bin hub locations that will undergo the statutory consultation TRO process anticipated to start in Autumn 2023.
As part of the engagement process, letters with a map of the proposed bin hub locations are being posted to residents (see Example here) and should be delivered in the next few days.
Also attached are the proposed bin hub locations for
Parking Zone 5 (St. Bernard’s Row & Dean St);
Parking Zone 5A (Saxe-Coburg Place/Saxe-Coburng St / Dean Bank Lane; Hamilton Place; Henderson Row ; Brandon St / Henderson Place / Perth St.)
Parking Zone 6 (Canonmills / Rodney St ; Brandon St / Brandon Terrace / Canon St ; Eyre Place / Logan St ; Eyre Terrace ; East London St (western section)).
