Edinburgh, Scotland, UK 22 August 2018. City Chambers offices.
Campaigners against a proposed £50 million development in Leith handed in a petition with more
than 10,000 signatures to the city council’s planning committee at the City Chambers on the Royal Mile.
'Save Leith Walk' is a grassroots public campaign to prevent the demolition of the 1930s sandstone building
and influence what is built on the site. To help develop an alternative design for the site that can really
help Leith Walk regain its status as a unique and vibrant part of our national identity. The historic
sandstone frontage is an iconic part of Leith walk that many Leithers would like
to see retained. Also pictured, Leader of Edinburgh Council Adam McVey, Leith Ward, SNP Group Party.
