Granton ‘Marina’ – Note of Public Meeting held on Thursday 9th April. Granton_Marina_publicmeetingnote
4 April – Latest on Granton Harbour Marina – SEPA objection letter and from rep of Granton Central Developments. According to them – we don’t understand that they already have approval. What they don’t get is that this is our community and that we have an interest in what is built here – and that we will not just sit back and let them ride roughshod over us – not any more – we have had enough. We have the chance to make the politicians take a stand on this – now is the time for action. First attachment is opposition to development plans by SEPA on risk to flooding. The second is the new plan and the third is the letter from rep of Granton Central Developments.
This is where we will provide information on key planning developments:
Details of Licensing – Headlines: Raeburn Hotel – extension of bar facilities. Edinburgh Accies development. Crewe Road South (Shell filling station) alcohol sale. You can check out others that may be in your area here.
