Yesterday, despite forceful and well-argued representation from Colinton CC, CAA, CVE and Colinton Tunnel, the City of Edinburgh Council voted in favour of accepting a report from the Transport and Environment Committee which:
- Said Colinton’s toilets “do not align” with their policy on toilets to be retained in the future; and
- Seeks therefore to explore a Capital Asset Transfer (CAT) of the toilets into community ownership – a process all four community organisations believe is not economically viable.
While this CAT process goes on, the toilets will open-hopefully by the end of July. But we have no guarantees for how long!
As long as the Council does not include Colinton’s loos in its list of supported toilets they are in danger of summary closure.
The community deputation has been offered a meeting with the Council where we will continue the fight to keep Colinton’s toilets open – permanently.
Work by the Forestry and Natural Heritage Dept to repair the landslip on the Dell Road embankment will start next week.
A ground investigation of the river embankment will be taking place on Tuesday 27 April. Residents are asked not to park their cars too close to the entrance of the Dell Road path access on that day.
There will be unavoidable noise from the drilling operation and the FNHD apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.
A slope clearance and inspection / topography survey will start on week beginning 3 May.
The date of a drainage survey which will follow has yet to be confirmed.
