It’s all change in Gorebridge

The confusion with two Gorebridge streets bearing the same name will soon be a thing of the past.

Updating councillors last week, corporate resources director John Blair said residents were in favour of changing Stobhill Road, Gorebridge, to Lower Bonnybank Road, Gorebridge.

Earlier this year, the Advertiser revealed local concerns that emergency services and delivery services were confusing the Stobhill Roads in Gowkshill and Gorebridge. The streets are less than a mile apart.

The council approached the five residents in the Gorebridge road advising them on proposals to change the street name. Two replied asking that while changing the name, street numbers were retained.
