In their place were left a few photos of unknown (to me) persons and other items.
Anyone with information please contact me or the police.

The situation is that from an early stage discussions with them pulled their starting time back from 7am to 8am - and Saturday working is up to 1pm.
They seem to be up to schedule with the intention of completing the frame by Christmas. There is due to be a showflat completed by the early New Year at the Bernard Terrace side. The current schedule is for internal fitting from February with the crane being removed in March.
So site hours are 8am to 6pm with Saturday working from 8am to 1pm. There is normally no working on Sundays.
A contact email address for any feedback direct to the company has been provided:
luttoncourt at ogilvie.co.uk [replace spaceatspace with @]
I also have contact details for the site manager if anyone needs them.
In summary the project is on schedule for completion by the beginning of the academic year 2017/18.

The problem has been that this niche area has effectively had no parking controls since the company responsible for policing the streets pulled out several years ago.
So the current plan is to make Briery Bauks part of Zone 7 with the Dumbiedykes becoming part of Central Zone 3. This would provide protected parking spaces for residents at a charge.
There is a leaflet being delivered in the near future and a consultation inviting views will go online shortly (it will be at www.edinburgh.gov.uk/parkingsurvey). But don't hold your breath. It is unlikely to come into effect until Spring 2018.
I will keep you updated.

In short Zone 7 permit holders (see the map here) can park in the neighbouring S1 zone to the south. (Zone 7 includes Sciennes). For some it may mean a bit of a walk - but at least it means there are parking spaces not too far away.
I listed the streets in the S1 area in which Zone 7 permit holders can park in a post a couple of years ago. You can find it here.

Which is all cause to celebrate that we treasure free speech in this country. Though it doesn't prevent me from wising that the doomsters would just get on with making the best of the democratic decisions which have been taken.
Whatever our view on the vote to leave the European Community the focus should be on getting the best deal and making the most of the opportunities. For some, though, it seems to be an opportunity to exercise a predilection to wallow in the possibility future doom and gloom. Not good.

The suspect identified is a male believed to be residing outside the UK and moves are afoot to bring him to justice.
