Residents in Moredun were left shocked when the Council posted letters around the area that were informing residents drilling would take place on the well-used green space adjacent to the high-rise flats. This was to investigate whether housing development would be suitable in the area.
This issue is long running and is a direct result of the area being included in the 2016 Local Development Plan as ‘suitable for development’. Fortunately, a well run campaign by locals means that the council has now stopped the drilling and has pledged not to recommence before the next local development plan is published. A great victory for the local community and the Moredun Multis & Maisonettes Residents Association. Well done.
