Have your say – cycle path trial consultation

The trial of the white lines and sight lines in the centre of the park is over, and now you can say what you think in the latest phase of the consultation here:

https://consultationhub.edinburgh.gov.uk/sfc/design-cycle-walk-roseburn-park-trial/

The Council Officers said to use that they had no specific plans to extend the white lines over the whole of the route in the park (at present they are just on the approaches to the centre).  But if you have views about that possibility we suggest you air them.

There is also a bit of intro which you can check it out here: Roseburn_Park_Trial_Consultation_Summary_Sheet.

Edinburgh Rugby planning application for Murrayfield back pitches

Edinburgh Rugby (the professional club) have submitted a planning application for a 7,800 capacity stadium on Murrayfield’s back pitches.

The relationship between this development and the ejection of Murrayfield Wanderers (the non-professional club) from Murrayfield is unclear.  Murrayfield Wanderers are controversially interested in relocating to Roseburn Park.

Hardy annuals plant 1000 bulbs

Thanks to all who made it to the drop-in bulb planting, which only lasted until 12 because of their industriousness.  The only usable ground was among the trees outside the Northeast (Roseburn Place) entrance.  Here are the last people standing:

Drop-in Park Bulb Planting!

We have been given 1000 Daffodil bulbs and these need to be planted quickly in the park. Can you help?

We have organised a ‘drop in’ event starting 10 a.m. through to 3.30 p.m. on Sunday 17th December at the Armoury building.

While some gardening tools are available, it would help if you could bring your own. Tools such as spade, trowel or dibber would be useful. Bring friends and family. All ages welcome including accompanied children.
