The City of Edinburgh Council is consulting the citizens of Edinburgh about whether it should promote a Private Bill in the Scottish Parliament to build a new Portobello High School on Portobello Park. As previous posts have discussed, the Court of Session has ruled that it is illegal to construct the school on the park because it is (allegedly) inalienable common good land (see previous posts here and here).
The residents of Portobello are thus engaged in two energetic campaigns.
The “no” campaign is run by Portobello Park Action Group. It has not produced a video (yet) but is no less energetic.
The consultation runs until 31 January 2013 and is open to all residents of Edinburgh. Somehow I doubt there will be much of a break for Christmas or Hogmanay.
