Friends of the Water of Leith Basin

Hello

I took a walk along the WoL path recently to look at the spring flowers we planted  and was very disappointed by the amount of rubbish that has accumulated around Coalie Park and along the paths.

A joint cleanup has been arranged with the WoL Conservation trust for Sunday 28th February 10.30am – 1pm.

As usual we are meeting in Coalie Park – this link shows where it is:  http://www.streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?X=326617&Y=676480&A=Y&Z=110

Hope to see you there.
Best wishes

Don Giles

Flood prevention

The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) has recently published its Forth Estuary Local Plan District. It states that ‘3,300 residential properties and 480 non-residential properties [in the Water of Leith catchment area] are at a medium likelihood of flooding from one or more sources’.

There is a consultation on the plans for the Water of Leith catchment area at https://frm-scotland.org.uk/frmp/ph2_forth-estuary-lpd-10-draft-flood-risk-mana/
