As predicted, the 181-195 St. John’s Road proposal is going to the meeting of the Development Management Sub-committee on Wednesday 21st October. The meeting starts at 10am and takes place at the City Chambers, High Street, Edinburgh EH1 1YJ.
Members of the public are welcome to attend and it would be great to demonstrate public concern by getting as many people as possible in the room.
We have also been advised that emails to individual committee members can make a real difference in terms of showing local opposition. Committee members are not allowed to enter into discussion about the development, but are allowed to read and acknowledge the emails. The list of Councillors who sit on the committee can be found on the Council website along with their email addresses: http://www.edinburgh.gov.uk/directory_record/626744/development_management_sub-committee.
The Case Officer’s report – which will make a recommendation as to whether the development should be supported or not – should be available on the planning portal from Thursday 15th October. Search on 15/02898/FUL and look under “Documents”.
