thank you can't story and i'd be happy to commit to meeting with Network Rail but I should perhaps give you a little bit more back

[Cllr Lesley Macinnes (Scottish National Party) - 0:04:42]

going there were initial discussions with Network Rail about a year ago and and more formal discussions are likely to start quite soon but they may take some time not least because of the procedures at need what we'll need to go through to close a real way
Powderhall is expected to be a broadly residential development there
and planning permissions going too late to take some time partly due to the problems of land clearance on that particular site but yes i be very happy to commit to that let me think thank you

is a real risk that people think this is somehow choreographed and a low Protestant I find that can be referred for a distance of some time ago M I received a wonderful letter from three of my constituents and marion gunderson Eden forest i'll Gemma Marsh debris and what made this later different and special was that all three of them where 10 years old or younger and he wrote to me because of their concern over the speed of cars that are going past their homes that many newer which is a small area of housing just to the east of the cargo area at Edinburgh airport know what I approached officials about possible speed reduction measures i was told that nothing could be done until the full review that is to follow after the final fees of the 20 mile an hour rule and that could of course be two to three years away so can I ask the consider if she will be prepared to meet with myself Merran eaten and Gemma or at least make arrangements for officials to meet with them so that they can hear first hand why we really need action here sooner rather than later

[Cllr Lesley Macinnes (Scottish National Party) - 0:07:00]

thank you Councillor Lang IBA happy to meet with your constituents perhaps to bring them into the City Chambers so they can see democracy in action and I would be very delighted to meet with them but i can't promise anything particular and on the content of that I see a question

5 point 4 by cancelling liking on the psychopath network

[Cllr Lesley Macinnes (Scottish National Party) - 0:08:00]

[Cllr Lesley Macinnes (Scottish National Party) - 0:08:02]

as Councillor line will appreciate we have a number of priorities sitting around active travel projects across the city and were making quite
large strides towards achieving those I would suggest that we hold a meeting between officials on myself and Councillor Lamb to explore that particular issue

Item 5.5 - By Councillor Lang - Janitorial Review

[ Allan McCartney (Clerk) - 0:08:18]

5 point 5 by cancelling janitorial review

[Cllr Kevin Lang (Liberal Democrat) - 0:08:24]

and I thank you for this answer although I have set out the story that I had to table another written question in order to get it and I appreciate the sensitivities around individual members of staff and the union negotiations which have been ongoing however as I did see to the Convener last month Community Centres have already been given information they have already been told the janitorial cover that they will get from next year changes which I fear that in some parts of my ward risk making Community Centres financially unviable i'm still trying to understand Lord Provost why that information not individual janitorial contracts but the overall levels of Cabinet of cover for community centres information that has already been handed out and described as final why cannot information not be provided no

[Cllr Alasdair Rankin (Scottish National Party) - 0:09:17]

I thank Councillor question
i'm today that whatever information may have been provided to this point to a Community Centre Management Committees cannot possibly be final until the consultation is complete and the outcome of that consultation has been fully considered so I will be interested to know why those assurances had been given and if they have I cannot understand that they would be have they would have any real validity given where we are in the process

Item 5.6 - By Councillor Booth - Parking Enforcement

[ Allan McCartney (Clerk) - 0:09:46]

COUNCILLOR based on parking enforcement

[Cllr Chas Booth (Scottish Green) - 0:09:51]

thank you Lord Provost added that can be enough for her response she will share with me the frustration and
real anger many of my constituents and I'm sure many cause constituents of Councillors around the room at illegal and irresponsible parking in particular pavement parking and parking on double yellows and there's a general perception out there that we need to get better as a Council and enforcement and should also went of scripture attention that the 3 first parts of my question were all identified as action points in the Parking Action Plan which was signed off more than a year ago and it's disappointing therefore that in her response she has said that the only action the Council has taken on this is to respond to us to Scottish Government consultation will she agree specifically to write to the Transport Minister holmes' yusuf to raise these three points and will she agree to put this on the agenda for the next meeting of the next time she meets with the transport minister to ensure that we get real action on parking enforcement

[Cllr Lesley Macinnes (Scottish National Party) - 0:10:50]

thank you came to both ideally be here think the question of selfish parking habits across the city a quite deplorable because in credible amounts of difficulty around active travel issues as well as general inconvenience to other drivers and for the safe transit or public transport networks throughout the city and you'll also be well aware of the fact that are proposed are somewhat limited in this we are constantly looking to national legislation to allow us to take more action attached to it and yes I would be happy to write to them the minister and in one of my frequent meetings with M I will read that

[ Allan McCartney (Clerk) - 0:11:28]

Councillor Miller of affordable housing

Item 5.7 - By Councillor Miller - Affordable Housing

[Cllr Claire Miller (Scottish Green) - 0:11:34]

thank you Lord Provost m the question that I had asked them was of the Planning Convener so under is it possible to ask a supplementary at the minute
and so I wanted to thank the computer for the answer that was given however the answer didn't really get to the heart of the question that I had asked and which was what is the Council doing to ensure that the money that replacing gratefully into affordable housing is not lost to other purposes while we still have a housing crisis on our hands in the partial answer that computer has given is welcomed and but there is nothing in the answer that assures me that were doing enough to track what is happening to affordable housing which is being built and ensure that its being retained and I wondered if we could have a further answer on that on the precise that we would m be looking to have in order to track that thank you very much

[Cllr Gavin Barrie (Scottish National Party) - 0:12:27]

thank you very much for your question or your supplementary
we do talk a as described and the answers I am quite happy to try to get more information to you asked a group of approximately might be workers are french as I can see like this was golden she'll housing we actually know there's been five resales of golden shield homes approved analysed two years are not as likely less than three percent golden she had homes to look nicely years and we've got good cheer homes are sold for 80 percent of market value unless written that the title deeds so these are completely traceable and we can guarantee we are not losing unknown opposes Under the Yorkshire process and of course the affordable houses generally speaking are within control of the housing associations or the council so there will be enormous available perhaps more difficult to do
a little more effort from the host Association that certainly our social housing that we and i'm pretty sure of income up these numbers forty that's what you require

Item 5.8 - By Councillor Mary Campbell - Education Maintenance Allowances

[Cllr Mary Campbell (Scottish Green) - 0:13:35]

thank you for progress and I thank the Committee for his answer as I am sure the community is aware nationally the uptake of the educational Maintenance Allowance is down by 4 percent and I would like to know what the Council is doing to encourage our young people m from low income families to apply for the educational Maintenance Allowance

[Cllr Ian Perry (Labour) - 0:13:54]

and I was aware of that fact and I do know that at least two primary schools are certainly one I think to primary schools have actually use the pay funding to invite are
A benefits adviser into the school to work with the parents and families to make sure everyone is achieving the benefits they require if that successful understand is producing some good results and we would want to try and promote like two other primary schools and secondary schools as well

[Cllr Mary Campbell (Scottish Green) - 0:14:26]

[Cllr Mary Campbell (Scottish Green) - 0:14:27]

let's say I would just like to clarify that educational means amount is for low income young people aged 15 to nineteen and I new forms are available in libraries but it's not very well promoted and I would be interested in could we as a Council do more to promote this very specific fund that people can access

[Cllr Ian Perry (Labour) - 0:14:45]
