The Water of Leith Conservation Trust today released its new Plan for public consultation.

An important document, it is aimed mainly at organisations which manage the river, but will be of interest to many others who live by or enjoy this 'silver thread in a ribbon of green'.

The draft can be downloaded from our Extras page. Associated maps showing Environmental assets adjacent to the river, and Management issues, can be downloaded from the Trust's own website at: www.waterofleith.org.uk.

Comments are invited by 18 June 2010, and should be sent to: sue@bellecology.co.uk. The required feedback forms for this purpose are also available from Extras, as is a postal address you can pass on to those without computers.

The nearest places to read paper copies of the document are Stockbridge and Leith Libraries, and City of Edinburgh's Waverley Court on Market Street.
