    Planning is completely dysfunctional in this country.

    @scotgov has a 20% and @Edinburgh_CC has a 30% car km reduction target, and @midgov gives consent to a car-led development with 250 parking spaces on Edinburgh's outskirts.

    Presume it's application 22/00689/S50 for "Land North East of Sheriffhall Park and Ride, Easter Shawfair, Danderhall".

    MLC planning portal helpfully says:

    This application is no longer available for viewing. It may have been removed or restricted from public viewing.

    This’ll be a tough job! (Someone has been appointed) -

    Midlothian Council is looking for an experienced, motivated, forward thinking Strategic Transport Planning Manager. As Scotland’s fastest growing local authority, this is an exciting time to join Place Services and be part of delivering strategic transport infrastructure projects that contribute to Midlothian’s Carbon Neutral pledge, promote active travel and provide accessible and reliable public transport solutions for Midlothian’s citizens.

    strategic transport

    Ah yes. How I've missed that term.

    With a bit of cycling and walking tacked on because a few people have got their knickers in a twist about climate change and pollution and stuff and we can't be seen to forget about it.

    Does anyone know what “they” plan in terms of road access to the new development at Rosslynlee? Only options currently are all unclassified back roads either from the A6094, B7003 Roslin Glen rat run or from the B7026 after Auchendinny. Can’t see any of it being particularly pleasant.

    Aye - that's a big development. The lane to it is quite wide, but then the lanes that link that lane to the outside world are not so well suited. These are nice lanes for a cycle or a walk - that will change I guess. I suspect few in the development will use active travel to get to civilisation of course.
