Work has begun carving a bench out of a log to be installed in Roseburn Park to mark the park's new beginnings following the Flood Prevention Scheme. The bench is being organised by Friends of Roseburn Park and is sponsored by Murrayfield Community Council and the City Council's West Neighbourhood Partnership. The work is being undertaken by Four Winds Edinburgh.
Cllrs Macinnes and Ross and others have marked the completion of the flood prevention scheme with Roseburn Primary pupils.
Graffiti was discussed at the meeting of 9 January 2018. Many members of the public have complained about it and some have actively removed graffiti in the absence of action by the City Council, who are typically concerned with whether the nature of the graffiti is 'offensive'. The Community Council is bidding for a graffiti removal kit from the West Neighbourhood Partnership.
Any thoughts on where in the area the problem is particularly bad?
