Consultation launched on south Edinburgh park

VIEWS are being sought about a proposed re-imagining of a parkland area in the south of Edinburgh.

A masterplan for Inch Park has been suggested by the city’s local authority.

And says the council, here: “Participants will be asked about the overall concept plan, the wider park improvement ideas, opportunities to make the park better for nature and wildlife and proposed new visitor facilities and new café.

“They will be asked for their views on the following objectives: (1) Celebration of Inch’s history – including things such as restoration of the historic Inch House and outbuildings; (2) Activities for all – such as a new all-weather 11-a side sports pitch and facilities and new visitor centre; (3) Accessibility – other improvements to the park including new paths, lighting, entrances and furniture; (4) Play – such as a new play area and facilities for children; and (5) Sustainability – creating habitats for wildlife and connecting them to other city areas and using sustainable low/zero carbon heating and power generation.”

The consultation, here, ends on the 28th of next month.
