Water of Leith Update - February 2022


Work continues on reinstating the path, that has now been closed for 8 years, heading upstream from Dean Village.

It was due to be completed by the end of January, but the project has experienced a series of delays due to a variety of issues.

Work is now estimated to be completed by the end of March 2022.

The section of the path between Bell's Mill and Belford Road which was closed on 3rd November 2021 due to the deterioration of the timber parapet, is not within the ownership of the Council. It has taken a period of time to establish contact with owner Britannia Hotel's manager, and they are making an assessment of the situation.

Council officers will be working closely with the owners to find the best solution to allow this section to be repaired and reopened to the public.
