Mobility Hubs at Calderwood

Stirling Developments have held discussions with Marian Marsh, Senior Development Officer for CoMoUK, to bring the first Mobility Hub in Scotland to Calderwood.

We aim to have Calderwood’s Mobility Hub up and running this summer. We are also looking to create smaller hubs or hublets across Calderwood and the forthcoming Park and Ride at Kirknewton Railway Station.

Shared transport, typically car club cars and shared bikes or e-bikes, can offer new transport choices which help respond to climate change. The new National Planning Framework Positions Statement recommends the Scottish planning system should be rebalanced so that climate change should become the guiding principle. Since lockdown, more people are appreciating their local environment, and by reducing the need for some parking, there is scope to cater for this change in values by freeing up space for a greener environment.

Calderwood shuttle bus trial

Stirling Developments are carrying out a shuttle bus trial that will run from Calderwood to the West of Edinburgh business clusters including Edinburgh Park, South Gyle and Gogarburn. Along with this, another service running direct to Kirknewton railway station will be offered.

Improving public transport journey times between Calderwood and Edinburgh is key to a successful system. The planned coxydene junction upgrade, with bus priority measures onto the A71, is an example where public transport can be promoted as a better alternative to cars journeys and encourage active travel.

The shuttle bus route, in time, will be bolstered by a Lothian Country public bus route.

Guy Fawkes Comes to Calderwood!

Ahead of Guy Fawkes Night, Stirling Developments ran a guy-making competition for the children of Calderwood. Basic guy-making materials were dropped-off at The Larder Cafe at Calderwood on the run-up to judging day; this included pillow cases, old clothes and lots of straw from a neighbouring farm!

Ray Kirk (Director of Projects, Stirling Developments) was tasked with judging the guy entries on Saturday 2nd November at The Larder Cafe at Calderwood. This was no easy task as every entry was imaginative, creative and displayed lots of community spirit! 

Each child earned a small prize for entering the competition. Stirling Developments was delighted to present the children who created the winning entry with tickets to Clip ‘n Climb at Edinburgh International Climbing Arena (EICA) in Ratho! Well done to all.
