The consultants have released the following message for the community:
As you may have already heard, Midlothian Council is updating the regeneration masterplan for Dalkeith. They want to build on what has been said in previous consultations and understand what people want from Dalkeith town centre today and in the future. This will be informed by a new vision for the town centre that reflects new priorities and different ways of living that have emerged in the last few years.
We need to hear your voice! At 2 local drop in events on 13th/14th May, over 100 people who live and work in Midlothian had the opportunity to share their vision for the future of Dalkeith town centre. We are continuing to listen to people throughout May -July 2022 – read on to find out about the different ways that you can have your say.
