Minutes of New Town & Broughton Community Council’s ordinary meeting, held via Zoom, on Monday 12 April 2021 at 7pm
The Council have just announced (see separate post) the temporary Spaces for People measures that will be implemented along the route from Canonmills to Broughton Street. While we welcome some aspects of the current plans including the widening of the pavements at the Broughton Road junction and the improvements made to a number of junctions along the route, we intend to highlight our disappointment with the overall package of measures. The current proposals largely ignore the feedback from the Commonplace Mapping conducted last year and make few meaningful improvements to pedestrian and cyclist safety.

“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 email@example.com ”

(adapted from an email from SGN)
SGN has completed its work to upgrade the gas network in Broughton Street, three weeks ahead of schedule.
Our engineers have been working extended hours and weekends throughout our project in Broughton Street, meaning our work has finished early. We have now moved on to the next stages of our project, in London Street and Forth Street.
The northbound closure of Broughton Street will remain in place as Laing O’Rourke continues its planned works as part of the Together for Edinburgh programme.
SGN Project Manager Matt Ferguson said:
I’d like to thank local business owners, residents and motorists for their continued patience and understanding throughout our time in Broughton Street. We’ll be handing the work site over to contractor Laing O’Rourke this evening.
