Residents in Morningside will be aware that the much loved Midmar Paddock has again been put up for sale again.
I worked closely with Morningside Community Council, Friends of Hermitage Braid and the local community to fend off the last development proposals but it appears to be starting all over again. I was delighted that Councillor Neil Ross organised a well-attended public meeting to form a new group to fight to save Midmar Paddock.
The aims of the group initially will be to:
- Explore options for more rights of way across the site (making development more difficult)
- Feed into upcoming local development plan
- Prepare to fight a planning application
I will fully support this group and look forward to attending the meeting in October. We must preserve this vital, well used green space and secure it for future generations.
