2014 Advice Surgeries

2014 brings a new year but also sees changes to my surgery times.

My surgery times are now as follows:

1st Tuesday of the month:

6.00pm at Liberton Kirk Halls

6.45pm at Gilmerton Community Centre

As many constituents are aware, I am also happy to meet outwith these times, when necessary, at a mutually convenient time.


Liberton & Craigour Primary School Extensions

To keep you up to date with progress on the proposed new classroom buildings at Liberton and Craigour Park Primary Schools, I can advise that both proposals have now received planning approval.  A decision about whether to proceed with the new builds for delivery in August 2014 will be made in January following an assessment of P1 registrations. 

Details of the buildings themselves are viewable on the Councils Planning Portal:

Craigour Park Ref: 13/04457/FUL

Liberton Ref: 13/04458/FUL


Advice Surgery

After a self-imposed online silence during the holiday period, can I wish you all a happy and healthy 2014.

As per the title of the post, I offer a reminder that my first advice surgery of 2014 is scheduled to go ahead tomorrow evening (Tuesday) at 6.00pm at Liberton Kirk Halls. No appointment necessary!
