Forth Regeneration Event

Hello

If you live, visit or work in the north of the city, you may be aware of regeneration activity underway. Here in the Forth Neighbourhood, a number of projects have started or are under development. The Forth Neighbourhood Partnership and local Community Councils feel that this is a good time to bring together as many of those involved with managing or developing local regeneration to engage with the wider Forth community.

The Forth Regeneration event will take place on Saturday 27th September 2014, in Edinburgh College – Granton Campus from 10:00 – 14:00.

The event has been designed to be interactive and allow people the opportunity to fully understand and influence, where possible, current regeneration activity and future proposals. Information and discussion groups will take place around;

• New homes and improved public space in Pennywell/Muirhouse and health facilities;
• Proposals for Granton Waterfront;
• Wider investment across forth, identifying challenges and opportunities.

An overview of the Second Proposed Local Development Plan will help set the scene before we head into discussion groups around the above three key areas.

A light lunch is available. Please let us know if you require any childcare arrangements.

To book a place, please use the link below. If you have already booked, there is no need to re-book.

Please forward to anyone you think may be interested in attending. We have also attached a poster to display.

Dear all,

I would just like to keep you updated on progress with the recent funding application submitted to the Scottish Government Regeneration Fund to help take forward some of the plans that are included within the masterplan for the central area.

 I’m pleased to say that we have been successful in getting through to the second round of the application process, meaning that we have met the criteria of the fund.  The aspects of the masterplan included in the funding application include improvements to the public realm, shopping centre and library. Congratulations and thanks are due to everyone who helped to get us this far. 

 We now need to show that we have a project that can be designed and delivered to meet the required timescales.  The second stage application needs to be submitted by the start of September and the final outcome will be announced in November.

 It is my intention to keep you fully involved in this process and I’ll be in touch shortly once more information is available from the Scottish Government on what is required within second stage applications; more information should be available at the end of June / start of July.

 Thanks to those that attended yesterday’s meeting in the Millennium Centre and I’ll hopefully meet up with you all again soon.

 Best wishes,

Cammy

 A planning application has been submitted for the NWEPC and details can be viewed at;                                                   https://citydev-portal.edinburgh.gov.uk/idoxpa-web/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=N6ND95EWG9500 (copy and paste in your browser)

 There are regeneration communication information points now established in the North Neighbourhood Office, North Edinburgh Arts, Community Shop in Pennywell Road and Muirhouse Library. I have another six locations in which to put up information on the regeneration throughout the community, which I intend to complete on Monday. If you would like a copy of the display images or the information, let me know and I will either email out or drop off to you, whatever is best.

 Thanks

 Michelle
