FIVE thousand residents in Dunbar and West Barns will receive postcards encouraging them to have their say on future developments in the area.

Three meetings take place next Saturday (March 25), when people can share their opinions on living in the area and what could be improved.

Dunbar and West Barns community councils have teamed up with Dunbar Trades’ Association for the event.

The three groups are working together to build a Local Place Plan, which will form part of East Lothian Council’s Local Development Plan.

The results of the survey will help guide the groups, the local authority and developers until 2035.

The meetings take place in the Bleachingfield Centre, Hallhill Sports Centre and West Barns Village Hall from 10am to 4pm.
