Why your views matter

Thank you for your time and interest in this project. We are at an early stage of development of proposals so are keen to hear from as many voices in the community as possible.

This survey should take around 5 minutes to complete and we are looking to get feedback on key design and placemaking proposals for Easter Road at the Albion Road junction and the path which connects Moray Park Terrace to Lochend Butterfly Way.
