Craigentinny & Duddingston Neighbourhood Partnership

Welcome to the Craigentinny & Duddingston Neighbourhood Partnership home page. We are ideally placed, with a historic castle, award winning parks, nearby beaches and lots of green space to enjoy. We are keen to maintain and improve these attractions.

In these pages you can find out what the Neighbourhood Partnership does and how you can get involved. There are links to the Partnership's priorities and the community plan. If you feel we've missed anything, or if you can't find out what you want to know, please contact us and we'll do our best to help you. 

Read the programme for the MORE!FUN Children's Book Festival in our libraries from 24-27 May.

A brand new park will be built on part of the combined site currently occupied by Portobello High School and St John's Primary School, after the new St John's Primary School is built. Edinburgh & Lothians Greenspace Trust was commissioned to carry out the consultation. Following this consultation, the Trust has developed three options for further public consultation.
 You can see the plans of -
Option A here, and images to illustrate it here;
Option B here, and images to illustrate it here;
Option C here, and images to illustrate it here.

Voting closed at the end of February. Design A was the favourite with over 55% of the 550 votes. Additional feedback suggested that the existing trees should be retained where possible, the concrete free-play area be moved into the centre of the park, the new Scots Pine should be planted further away from the surrounding gardens, and that the willow dens from Design B be incorporated if the budget allows.
62.5% of the 539 votes for the name of the park were in favour of Treverlen Park. The Partnership confirmed these recommendations at its meeting on 17 March, and passed this information into the project planning process.
