Murrayfield Community Council-funded log bench celebrating Roseburn Park to be officially 'opened' by the Lord Provost on 25 August 2018 at 10 am. All welcome. The bench was commissioned by Friends of Roseburn Park and funded by Murrayfield CC and the West Neighbourhood Partnership. It marks the felling of 30 trees in the park during the 2017 flood prevention works.
Contractors have been appointed to construct the relocated play park in Roseburn Park. Friends of Roseburn Park have been advocating for and consulting on this for several years. The Edinburgh City Council funded project has a proposed construction period of 28 August - 18 October 2018.
Congratulations to Anna Rowell and Ruridgh Mcmeddes for their paper on lessons learned in CCWEL/Rejuvenating Roseburn at:
And they won Best Paper from a Young Professional.
It's a rare treat to get a potted history and a view of local affairs from these perspectives.
Edinburgh Rugby (the professional club) have submitted a planning application for a 7,800 capacity stadium on Murrayfield's back pitches.
The relationship between this development and the ejection of Murrayfield Wanderers (the non-professional club) from Murrayfield is unclear. Murrayfield Wanderers are controversially interested in relocating to Roseburn Park.
