  • Brunstane Place Standard Events - POSTPONED

    16 March, 2016

    Brunstane Place Standard Exercise

    The Place Standard events scheduled for Saturday 19th March and Tuesday 22nd March in Edinburgh College have been postponed.

    This is being done to give us more time to align the event to cross boundary development issues in the Brunstane – Newcraighall -Musselburgh area. We will now be able to better coordinate with similar events being undertaken by East Lothian Council.

    It is still the Council’s intention to undertake a Place Standard exercise in the area and information will be provided on this in due course.

    We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.
