David Dunn Fitness trails opens


Midlothian Council has agreed to stabilise the slope and reopen the steps at Ironmills Park, Dalkeith.

Following an incident at the weekend when the bridge parapet was struck and fell into the river it is expected to take up to four weeks to repair.

What’s wrong with the Planning system and how can we fix it?

A neighbourhood plan has been launched for the Bonnyrigg, Lasswade and Poltonhall areas of Midlothian.

An open meeting for the community was held in early July to discuss the Dalkeith Community Hub. Read here to find out what was discussed.

Everyone is invited to take part in a community workshop on a Hub for Dalkeith at the Dalkeith Arts Centre from 6-8pm on Thursday 2nd of July, hosted jointly by the Community Councils of Dalkeith & District and Eskbank & Newbattle.

Public asked to take a lead in developing ideas, concepts and a practical way forward to give our County Town facilities worthy of its importance to Midlothian.

The good news is that the steps are finally open, once again. Midlothian Council advise that the repair is a temporary solution, to permit public access and use of the park, and will be followed up by more permanent works in early Spring.

There are sixteen Community Councils in Midlothian.
