Steps taken on new path

Have your say

A NEW footpath is to be built to link Westfield Avenue and the Water of Leith.

As part of the redevelopment of the area to the north-west of Westfield Avenue, the existing path that connects to the Water of Leith is to be closed, with a new footpath, which is to be adopted as a public road, to be built next to the existing path.

A “stopping up” order was advertised last February and no objections were received, so the order will come into effect when the new footpath is available. All of the costs associated with the statutory procedure will be met by developers.
