Beautiful Dundas House built by William Chambers (1771) in winking in the sun. Its Palladian style (named for Andrea Palladio) was very fashionable following Greek Revival. Note the perfect, grand proportions, columns and detail which echo the classical style.

Five double decker tour buses, a Rabbies minibus, and 2 airport buses, all with engines running on Waverley Bridge. With the somewhat ironic advert on the back of one

Looking forward to seeing the results of the 'careful planning and attention to detail involved' with transforming the Earl of Buchan's original & historic home on St Andrew Square (& latterly the office for IBM Scotland)

Sounds if you need bears as well ! They will probably keep foxes / squirrels & even your badgers at bay ?

If the threat of bears ensures clean streets, no overflowing bins & 'great resident compliance' (an interesting concept - not too sure of the details behind it) - then perhaps this is a small price to pay ? Probably keep the foxes / squirrels etc. at bay as well ............

We're supportive of the proposed use of this important building ( & that it has been saved from an alternative use as a high capacity STL / hostel). Wishing Topping & Company Booksellers every success in their new venture - it looks an exciting programme over the coming months.

Sensible suggestion - clearly helpful for & others to communicate latest discussions on this (& CEC's position if known given previous tweets in thread) - perhaps this should also include other consultations e.g. recent 'Quaich project' workshop. on WPSG........?.

Broadly share your concerns re. online 'consultations' - but hopefully GNT plan not 'already decided'. Further workshop with key stakeholders planned by CEC next week to further explore 'unresolved issues' eg junctions, plazas, street greening, cycleway segregation & JCM statue.

Underfunded ✔️✔️ Obscure location (Broughton St Mary's ⛪️? 🏛️. Boundaries sometimes illogical but not a major constraint. Definitely non-political & definitely a useful forum to raise / voice concerns...........

The more "concerned citizens" involved in community councils the better (you don't HAVE to be "concerned" - just interested in improving your local area). The triennial nominations / elections are due in September 2019 - contact us for more details

Although perhaps only small comfort - normal conditions applied to schemes such as this require replacement of any 'failed' plant stock for a period of 5 years - this was incl. as part of the granting of approval for 17/05832/FUL (Condition 5)

It's certainly progressing at a pace - the form of the new 'St James Crescent' from Multrees Walk to Leith Street clearly evident.
