The SNP/Libdem view that when it comes to Princess street the time for talking is over is fascinating but as yet somewhat hollow, not least because of the recent 'projectedinburgh seminar, (projectedinburgh is the result of the work we began to revamp the city centre which the SNP/Libdems are now calling their own).
At the seminar I waited for talk of action. Instead, and I kid you not, their "action" is the production of at least 5 more strategies, including car parking and moving barriers and street furniture. Oh hud me back!
They have announced however, that their first project will be the Royal High School and Calton Hill. (thats the same Calton Hill where they put the lamp-post in the wrong place!).
Interestingly, I haven't yet seen that reported to any committee or to the Full council, but then we know just how much contempt they have for democratic accountability so I shouldn't really be surprised.
