Petition is successful with 3,124 signatures
To: City of Edinburgh Council
Save Craigentinny & Telferton Allotments
UPDATE: We Won! 14/04/16
The campaign has been long and hard-fought, culminating today in the Planning Committee meeting in Edinburgh City Chambers. Councillors unanimously rejected Avant Homes' application to build houses on our cherished allotments.
The Planning Officer gave an account of the official comments to the Council, declaring that there were 281 objections, only 3 comments in support and a petition of 3,032 signatures (at time of submission) opposing the proposal "...so we have roughly 3,300 in objection to it."
THIS IS EPIC ... not only was the petition worthwhile as an indication of support, but each and every signature counted towards the total number of objections presented to council.
I am still keeping the petition open, if only so that it can be accessed and witnessed on the 38degrees site by the Scottish Government Reporter, should the developer decide to appeal.
