There has been further delay to re-opening this well liked route into Penicuik Estate.

Midlothian Council has been persuaded that an Equalities Impact Assessment (EqIA) should be completed prior to a Section 14 notice being issued under the Land Reform Act. The report of the EqIA will be discussed by the Corporate Management Team at its next meeting on January 18th 2017. If the report is accepted, then a Section 14 notice should be issued shortly thereafter.

ScotWays appreciates the difficulties which the Council has faced this year over this matter, and hope that the access issue will be resolved shortly.
