Edinburgh Living Landscapes
We, as a Community Council,have been approached by the City of Edinburgh, Parks & Greenspaces to consult residents within Drylaw on their views of the Living Landscapes Project that they are proposing to introduce in our area.
Telford is not included in the project as all the greenspaces there are serviced by Manor Estates with exception of the grass verge running parallel with Telford Road, this will be maintained by CEC.
To do this we have set up a display board in the Drylaw Neighbourhood Centre which will be there from Monday 11th May 2015 until Monday 25th May 2015.
On the board is a leaflet by CEC explaining what Living Landscapes is all about. For Drylaw they are proposing on areas that we show on the board is at present is ‘Relaxed Mowing’ of these areas which means that they will allow these areas for grass to grow and they will only mow on a regular basis a perimeter border and on the bigger areas where there desired path line it will be cut on a regular basis and if the Community agrees they will be willing to look at creating areas of Wild Flower Meadows in the future on some of these area.
We as a Community Council are seeking the views of the Drylaw residents on this project, if you could fill in the form available at the display wwith your comments and place a tick on the diagram of the areas you may wish to see Wild Flower Meadows created. This will help us give a positive response on our residents views. Further info can be accessed at
