    George Street:
    I've been invited to the stakeholders' meeting about the George Street section of Roseburn-Leith on Thursday (7th Dec). I'm going to suggest that they remove the parking and do something like Jan Gehl's design page 132-135 of that document. I'll also say that they can remove the parking because of the huge number of parking spaces provided at the St James development.

    What else would you guys suggest for George St?

    Release of the 3 designs for Rejuvenating Roseburn will be released tomorrow.

    "Tomorrow we will be on the Old Coltbridge between 8am-4pm giving a public exhibition of three design options for the Murrayfield Place and Old Coltbridge public realm improvements."

    They'll also be at Murrayfield Community Council's meeting tomorrow evening at 7.30pm.

    “Rejuvenating Roseburn“

    Is that an official ‘thing’?

    That's what CEC called it in CCWEL update 6.

    It's NOT kerb designs or parking that the TRO will cover but making better use if what is public space

    I think they must have changed the photo @Stickman!

    I went along with a grumpy toddler and there seemed to be a good flow of people having a look. The three options for public space all looked good to me, in different ways - honestly I didn't have a preference.

    We got a free cake or two too as 3D cakes and Colpamia had both donated some snacks. Good to see local businesses keen to support the changes!

    @LivD - look in the background of the top Right photo.

    I chibbed him about it when I sat next to him at MCC last night :-)

    Speaking of which, a fairly usual agenda of complaints about speeding, too much traffic, motor vehicles damaging motor vehicles and "terryfied" school kids crossing Murrayfield Ave without a lollipop person before we got to the public realm consultation.

    People seemed to like getting the opportunity to contribute to ideas, although someone* threw in the curveball that any greenery next to the carriage way will die due to roadsalt.

    I have asked if people not at the stall or MCC can feed in suggestions and will let you know when I hear.

    *said individual seemed familiar and having chatted to her recalled that we had worked together on getting a church roof repaired when I lived further into town. This obviously didn't prevent her from saying that because she had seen a cyclist go through a red light without any lights on their bike that "cyclists need to..." (you can guess the rest)
