Wester Cowden development.

Dalkeith and District Community Council are in active ongoing discussions with Midlothian Council officers after residents on Easter Langside Drive suffered damage and disturbance recently when contractors vehicles were being taken to the site of the new development at Wester Cowden.

Defibrillator project – One goes public.

On 16th May, the Defibrillator at Melville Housing’s headquarters was officially launched in its new site at the Corn Exchange making it available for public access.  This is the first of several that will be positioned around the High Street so that most of the area will soon be within the required 150m distance from a 24hr accessible defibrillator.  Thank you to Melville Housing for making this possible.


After representations from the Community Council, speed bumps have been installed on Easter Langside Drive and the children’s playground warning sign moved so that it is now more visible.
