Following their inaugural meeting on 29 November, opponents of the Council’s proposed Picardy Place gyratory have issued a manifesto.
The two-page document aims to inform people across Edinburgh, and provides links and addresses to facilitate their response to the Council consultation which ends on Friday 15 December.
The Picardy Group’s reasons for opposing the gyratory are briefly:
Activists, stakeholders and concerned locals opposed to the City of Edinburgh Council’s latest plans for Picardy Place will meet this evening.
The idea is to establish priorities and discuss the best way to promote practical alternatives to the current proposal on offer in advance of the Transport and Environment Committee meeting on 15 January.
This is a closed, planning meeting. Further details will follow. For information, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
IT LOOKS LIKE A GYRATORY. IT OPERATES AS A GYRATORY. IT'S STILL A GYRATORY
Today consultations continue over the future layout of Picardy Place.
Members of the public are invited to attend an event at the City Art Centre between 10am and 7pm, or another tomorrow at Broughton St Mary’s Church on Bellevue Crescent from 3pm till 7pm.
