Barbecue slabs on Meadows and Links

A pilot scheme on the Meadows that has seen paved slab areas introduced in a bid to cut down on the amount of grass areas burnt by barbecues could be rolled out across the city.

The slabbed areas were launched on Edinburgh's biggest park in May, followed by a series of signs a month later, urging people use the slabs and not to place barbecues directly on to the grass.

City council chiefs are to meet later this year to judge the success of the scheme - and discuss whether to introduce similar measures at parks and gardens across the city.

They claim it is too early to say if the Meadows pilot has been a success.
