Heriot Watt University Smart Cities consultation

I am writing to invite you and your community to participate in my Heriot Watt dissertation research into the concept of Smart Cities using Edinburgh as a case study. The study is about community engagement, social outcomes and citizenship in relation to Edinburgh's Digital and Smart City ambition.

The study will be in the form of a Public Perception Survey which can be completed by following the link below.

It would be greatly appreciated if you could send the link onto your community council members or share it on your social media platforms to collect a wide pool of responses from your local residents.

If you have any further questions in relation to the research please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Kind Regards

Edinburgh Airport Aircraft Noise Survey

In 2017, Edinburgh Airport established an independent noise advisory board. Its purpose was to create and maintain an impartial pathway for the Community at large to engage with Edinburgh Airport Limited (EAL) in the understanding and resolution of issues relating to aircraft noise associated with Edinburgh Airport (EDI), with the primary aim of minimising the noise impact on affected or potentially affected communities.

Three years on, a panel was been established to review the effectiveness of the Edinburgh Airport Noise Advisory Board (EANAB) as the means for Edinburgh Airport to engage on noise issues. You can find out more about EANAB at .

The review panel is now launching an online consultation so all those with experience of EANAB and those with a wider interest in noise issues from Edinburgh Airport can contribute their views.

You can access the dedicated consultation survey to complete online here – it runs until 18.00 on Wednesday 31 March. We will consider all the responses received as we work towards presenting a report and recommendations later this year.

We look forward to hearing your views.

Best wishes,

Robert Carr and Kevin Lang
Edinburgh Airport Noise Review Panel
