Motion by Councillor McKenzie - Roseburn to Union Canal

Motion by Councillor McKenzie - Roseburn to Union Canal

 

Committee -

1)       “Notes that the Roseburn to Union Canal project is due to be completed in July and requests that the June Business Bulletin provides an update on the project timeline.

2)       Notes that the project does not provide an active travel connection between the West Approach Road / Telfer Subway and the Union Canal, with this section due to be delivered as part of the ‘Dundee Street / Fountainbridge Active Travel Improvements Project’.

3)       Believes that this gap will have a significant impact on the utility of the route, and requests that officers bring forward proposals for temporary measures to improve safety for walking, wheeling and cycling in the affected area, particularly in relation to the crossing of Dundee Street at Gibson Terrace.”

Motion by Councillor Osler - Changes to Communal Bin Hub Location Criteria

Motion by Councillor Osler - Changes to Communal Bin Hub Location Criteria

Committee notes:

1)       “Ongoing concerns about residents’ amenity as a result of the placement of bin hubs given that:

1.1)    The locations for bin hubs were selected via a desktop exercise.

1.2)    There were minimal attempts to consult with residents in Phases 1, 2 & 3.

1.3)    Changes to the location criteria agreed by Committee in May 2023 relaxed the rules on distances but did not take into account the impact on residential amenity.

2)       Since May 2023 a number of bin hub locations in Phases 3 & 4 have been reviewed under the current May 2023 criteria.  These reviews highlighted issues with the desktop exercise, the lack of consultation in Phase 3 and the negative impact on some residents’ amenity.

3)       Therefore, based on residents’ feedback and lived experience, Committee agrees:

3.1)    to instruct officers to take account of residential amenity as one of the review criteria, for any of the following:

                     A) single aspect properties;

                     B) main door properties;

                     C) properties in cul-de-sacs, where there is no through traffic;and

           3.2)    to permit a further review of phase 1-4 disputed bin hub locations, that meet any of the following:

                     A) single aspect properties;

                     B) main door properties;

                      C) properties in cul-de-sacs, where there is no through traffic.”
