Letter: Horror Picture

Posted on 15/12/2013 by


Dear Editor
I am writing to express my horror at the sale of the Picture House to Wetherspoons. This iconic venue for live music is potentially to be replaced by yet another place to eat and drink.  This city needs to rebalance its priorities – particularly for young people.
We wonder why some young people are so disconnected and cynical when they are not consulted about things that matter to them? I recognise that this is a private transaction however I have written to the council asking some questions about this situation and what can be done via planning, etc.
The good news is that young people are not sitting back. They have set up a petition. Link attached – see below
As a recently elected Community Councillor for Granton & District  I am delighted to be associated with this and hope through NEN this issue will be published and supported.
