PR Edinburgh, Path construction paves the way for media attention

A MAJOR homebuilder caused joy in the local community when it built more than 600 metres of pathway to improve active travel routes across East Lothian.

As part of its Saltcoats Grange development, Cala Homes (East) prioritised the completion of the footpath that runs adjacent to a busy road between Gullane and West Fenton.

As a result, the pathway provided an improved active travel route, making for a healthier and happier community. The story of Cala Homes (East) prioritising the path work grabbed the headlines in national, local and trade press.

The results:

And with a happy community comes great photos. As well as drafting and issuing a carefully crafted story, the team at our Edinburgh PR agency commissioned photography – highlighting the coming together of Cala and the Gullane Path Campaign Group.

In what was a controversial subject in the East Lothian area, the story managed to create a buzz around town, with local community social media groups showing a glowing response to the news.

The story also grabbed political attention, with a local MSP making a guest appearance at the site.

Although this marked a whopping 600 metres of built pathway already, Cala has committed to extending the path to 1200 metres. This means that Cala’s Gullane developments have helped fund major infrastructure improvements, with more than £3.3million in Section 75 payments paid to date and the total figure set to exceed £5.4million.

It was an opportunity for our team at Holyrood PR to get the chance to share yet another impressive initiative from Cala Homes (East), benefitting the communities surrounding its high-quality developments.
