Striking banners promoting local history, attractions and events are set to hang from the lampposts of a series of streets across the Capital.

The initiative has already been successful on Leith Walk, where the “I Love Leith” banners are said to have contributed to a greater sense of community in the area. And now city planners have agreed to adapt regulations to allow it to be rolled out across the city’s nine local “town centres”, including Gorgie/Dalry, Morningside/Bruntsfield, Stockbridge and Tollcross.
