Designating the Backsands as a Bathing beach

Fisherrow Waterfront Group -

The Fisherrow Waterfront Group, working with officers from East Lothian Council , have submitted an application to SEPA (Scottish Environmental Protection Agency) to  have Fisherrow Sands (the Back Sands) officially designated as a bathing beach. This will mean that the water quality at the beach will be regularly monitored.

To have the beach registered as a Bathing Beach we will need to provide good information about the number of beach users, both in and around the water, throughout the bathing season. This is usually in the form of photographic evidence of people in the water or a survey of user numbers.

Throughout the summer months therefore group members and ELC officers will be taking photos of the Beach in times of heavy use and performing counts of the numbers using facilities in the area.

We are also looking for members of the public to send us photos showing the beach in heavy use – (digital photos need to be time and date stamped for us to be able to use them). If you have any photos you would be willing to share please send them to musselburghLCP@eastlothian.gov.uk

Sowing the seeds for a community garden plan in Musselburgh

Musselburgh Transition Toun -

Residents in Musselburgh are being consulted on plans to create a community garden.

A series of meetings will be taking place over the coming week to help gauge public support for the proposal.

A site has already been identified at the rear of Musselburgh East Community Learning Centre, which could accommodate the development without impacting on existing skatepark and sports facilities.

The project is being led by members of the Musselburgh Transition Town group, who have enlisted the help of students at Edinburgh University to undertake a feasibility study.

All households in the Wimpey area of the town will receive a questionnaire, complete with a pre-paid return envelope, to allow them to voice their opinions and concerns.

Planning For The Future Of Musselburgh High St.

Musselburgh.Info -

From June - September 2011 the Musselburgh Town Centre Task Group consulted people living and working across the Musselburgh wards about their ideas, concerns and aspirations for the future of Musselburgh's High Streets - from Pinkie Pillars to the Ship Inn.

The key questions posed were:

  • What could be done to make the High St a better place to be?
  • What's good?
  • What's not so good?
  • And what needs to be improved to make it a better place to live and work?

Over 1200 people participated in the consultation and a Final Report has now been produced.

The information and ideas contained in this report are now feeding directly into the Town Centre Strategy being prepared for Musselburgh by East Lothian Council. This strategy is intended to provide a co-ordinated framework for action and investment in the town centre. The Planning for Real© consultation was one way of making sure that the views and ideas of local residents of all ages, and those working in and visiting the Town Centre are able to contribute to the Town Centre Strategy.

The consultation had two main parts:

  1. a 6m long 3D representation of the High St, from Pinkie Pillars to the Ship Inn, was on display in a number of town centre sites including Brunton Hall, Tesco and a shop on the High St. Passers-by were encouraged to add their ideas, concerns and comments directly on to the map
  2. a survey, designed tocompliment the map exercise, looked at how local people are currently using the High St and what they thought would make the most difference in encouraging more people to use the area more often. This could befilled inon paper while the map was on display or completed on-line.
