Comments requested on Meadows & Bruntsfield Links Manifesto by 26 Jun

City of Edinburgh Council is currently reviewing arrangements for event management and as part of this process the production of an Edinburgh Parks Events Manifesto is underway. The intention is that this document will provide a wide framework for the management of events in all of the city’s parks and greenspaces and will help secure a balance between the use of these sites for events whilst sustaining a high quality environment.

Specific concerns have been raised about the condition of the Meadows over several years due to the number of events held on the site and the Policy & Strategy Committee 12 May 2009 requested that a priority case study of the Meadows and Bruntsfield Links be drafted.

The aim of the
Meadows & Bruntsfield Links Manifesto is to establish a set of requirements unique to The Meadows and Bruntsfield Links which are intended to provide a framework on which a balanced and sustainable events programme can be achieved, whilst ensuring the quality of the land is maintained to the highest standard possible. It uses eight key principles, the first five determine whether an event will be given permission, the following three are aimed at the successful management of an agreed event.

In order to present the results of this consultation at the next meeting of the Policy & Strategy Committee comments (to are requested by 26 June 2009. If you do respond to this call for comments can you copy to
