    In common with many I should like to see a definition of the word “sustainable” in a Planning Law , or indeed real world, context.

    The article about Hardies is hardly headline news; companies up and down the country undergo audits / achieve H&S or SSIP’s accreditations on a daily basis!

    I see an article about 6000 houses being built in Edinburgh in the next 20 years, I worked abroad and the company I had a senior position in, in the 1970s we build 25000 yes (twenty five thousand homes) in 8 years. Everything in just tinkered with in Scotland, no real ability, enthusiasm or determination the get anything done properly.

    Sir, This Orchard Brae development is only at the PPP stage. Local people have read the blurb and all agree it is a polished bit of “Spin” by their media firm. If you ask local people what they think of this ridiculous idea to grab community Greenbelt, you will find the truth. No one wants this. No one needs it. No one is fooled by the glossy presentations.. It is already a well used much loved community space. This company did not take any of our ideas into their plans. They “stole” the park idea. The so called community engagement was a farce. I attended all 5 of these and one was worse than another. They could provide us with NO ANSWERS and were unwilling to discuss taking the plan elsewhere…Like to an old brownfield site. I am shocked you chose to publish this . Its simply advertising free for a company that has nothing locals want here.

    I wish to make further comment on the above so called Europark project. The plan on which a “kings ransom” was spent, is now with the Planning Authority. The anger and disgust of local people is growing with each sentence of the thick book they read. The majority of locals are against it. The facts are hidden.The reason this company is “leaving areas untouched” is because they are on the flood plain which was not even measured last winter when at its worst and on the pit and mine workings from 100 years ago, which would not bear the weight of any build. It is shocking that any person would publish the “promises” of formerly failed entrepreneurs, as a future reality. They claim to have responded to local concerns. I have met no one from the community councils or residents associations or individual village groups who has been consulted, nor had any response to their complaints to this company and its agents.Their agents are highly respected I believe .However should this proposal see the light of day CBRE and Barton Willimore will come to wish they had taken no part in it.
