Meadows events area overuse latest

Yesterday the Council agreed not to approve new events on the Meadows until a management plan is in place.    The Lady Boys of Bangkok (Urban Circus) has already been approved and is certain to go ahead in August for just over four weeks.  It will be on the area close to the George Square Library on the north side of the events area.  (The events area is the section of the Meadows east of Middle Meadow Walk which has services installed.)
preparation of the management plan is well under way and the Meadows has been inspected with a view to being awarded a 'green flag' status.  The result will be announced later in the year.
Here is how Andrew Picken of the Evening News reported yesterday's decision.
