08 March 202220 Minute Neighbourhoods
The City of Edinburgh Council has developed a strategy to find ways for Edinburgh residents to meet their daily needs within 20 minutes of their homes by walking, using public transport, wheeling or cycling.
Full information is on the CEC website - https://www.edinburgh.gov.uk/20minuteneighbourhoods
At the end of the above, you will see a list of 20 proposed neighbourhoods but Craiglockhart is not one of them. We feel that unless we have a plan and shout loudly enough with Community backing, then we will not be considered.
