We have had quite a busy autumn, with two successful events over the past two months! Many thanks all those who have supported our September Fun Day and "PlantIT!" events.

We would like to thank the Council for donating gloves and planters for the bulb planting, and to say thank you again to the businesses and individuals who generously donated time and tombola gifts to make the Fun Day such a success!

Regeneration Plans

Consultation Report on Proposed Regeneration Plans

Last year the friends of Montgomery Street Park decided to approach the community in order to get feedback on some of the suggested changes to the park. The Edinburgh and Lothians Greenspace Trust, who have experience doing similar consultations and have had previous involvement with the group, were employed to do the work and produce this report thanks to funding from the North Neighbourhood Partnership Community Grants Fund scheme.

The process of consultation not only provides valuable feedback but, crucially, stimulates a sense of community ownership of this park. It is to be hoped that the increased awareness as well as the focus this process has provided, will give impetus to the regeneration of Montgomery Street Park. Thanks to all those who facilitated the consultation and subsequent report especially to all to those from the community who have taken the time to express their opinions on the proposed plans and make known their hopes and aspirations for their local park.

Take a look at our findings…
