We are trying to collect as many signatures as possible as I, Luigi Pia, representing Gigi's restaurant in Bonnyrigg, feel that our restaurant / community would benefit greatly in allowing us to purchase and redevelop a small area of land for private parking.

Currently there is no obvious parking for Gigi's with most of our customers just parking on the street. This causes congestion and making this currently busy road to become somewhat dangerous, for drivers and pedestrians.
Our local residents are always complaining about people parking in front of driveways, calling the police to get them moved and therefore just wasting everyone's time and tax payers money.

We have applied to the council for permission to take this piece of land, to which we were met with a response that it was 'valuable green space in Bonnyrigg'. This confuses us as we look at this area everyday and we see nobody using this space at all. It's sometimes vandalised and collects litter in it's current state.

We would propose to redevelop the site to make a 13 space car park but we shall maintain it with trees and shrubs. We are confident we would be able to make the area look 10 times better than it's current state.
To try and restrict unauthorised use of the car park we would be prepared to fit a barrier, which would deter people parking their car there and hopping on the bus. This barrier would open and close in relation to our opening hours.

Please help us in our cause to win this case against Midlothian Council as we feel in this case they are overseeing the safety and practicality aspects and reverting to policies that are illogical.

Thank you for your time.
