Have your say on the landscapes of Moorfoot

Midlothian Council has published its draft supplementary guidance on Special Landscape Areas across the county and is looking for comments from the public.

Special Landscape Areas are areas of high scenic value where greater controls are imposed on development to ensure that the character of the landscape is maintained.

There are seven designated SLAs in Midlothian. Three of them cover parts of the Moorfoot Community Council area:
  • the Tyne Valley SLA (covering the Middleton-Borthwick area);
  • the South Esk Valley and Carrington Farmland SLA (covering the Temple-Carrington-Dalhousie area); and
  • the Gladhouse Reservoir and Moorfoot Scarp SLA.

The Community Council will be responding to the consultation and we are keen to hear your views on the proposals. The draft Supplementary Guidance can be found at https://www.midlothian.gov.uk/info/1210/planning_and_building

If you have comments on the proposals you can make them direct to the Council. You can also tell us what you think by emailing us at chair@moorfoot.org.uk. The Council requires responses by 6th June. If you would like the Community Council to take account of your views please email them to us by 31st May.
