For those having Black-Helicopter fears of the UN herding us into apartments and forcing people to ride trams:
A group of Edinburgh residents has won a UN ruling against the city council over the environmental impact of the controversial trams project.
The residents, from the west end of the city, took their arguments to a UN committee which sits in Geneva. They complained Edinburgh Council was in breach of an international agreement on access to information. The draft findings on access to raw data could have implications for local authorities across the UK.
The Moray Feu Residents Association, led by lecturer Ashley Lloyd and retired civil servant Alistair MacIntosh, has been challenging the council’s plans for a new tram system for years because of the noise and pollution created by traffic diverted onto residential streets.
