City of Edinburgh Council is seeking views from local people about the future management and ownership of Easter Craiglockhart Hill Local Nature Reserve and the adjacent lands of Easter Craiglockhart Hill.
The Local Nature Reserve (LNR) is in joint ownership between the City of Edinburgh Council and Craighouse Partnership, which has taken over ownership and management from Edinburgh Napier University. Current management of the LNR is through a management plan and management agreement. Responsibility for the management of Council land lies with its Parks & Greenspace Service.
Due in part to the proposed development of the Craighouse Campus by the Craighouse Partnership, an opportunity has arisen to potentially transfer ownership and management of their woodland and open space to the Council or appropriate community body. This would create a single woodland and open space, increasing the size of the area of public land to approximately 16.7 hectares.
A further consultation event has been arranged for the evening of Thursday, 21st March at 7.00 pm. The event will take place in Morningside United Church Hall, 15 Chamberlain Road, EH10 6JF and all are welcome.
Frequently asked questions can be downloaded from either the South Central Neighbourhood Partnership website or the City of Edinburgh Council website.
