Help shape the future of Wester Hailes

There will be a special two-day pop-up consultation in shop unit 35 (located on the first floor) of Westside Plaza next week on Friday 29 November and Saturday 30 November 2019, asking what future you would like to see for Wester Hailes.

The consultation has been organised by a group of local residents, organisations and partners from the City of Edinburgh Council and Scottish Government as part of an ongoing process of creating a Local Place Plan for the whole of Wester Hailes.

Local Place Plans are a new type of plan giving people an opportunity to develop proposals for the development and use of land in the place where they live. It is intended that Local Place Plans will stimulate and encourage debate about the future of a place, enabling communities to focus on their aspirations as well as their needs.

The event will also be an opportunity to hear about the plans and feed in any ideas you may have for the upcoming construction work at Westside Plaza Civic Square. Works will commence on the area outside the shopping centre in January 2020 with resurfacing, the creation of green spaces, a play area and much more. The ideas were developed for this by the local community through consultation carried out by Wester Hailes Community Trust, and funding gained by the City of Edinburgh Council.
