The steer­ing com­mit­tee lead­ing the Leith Place re­de­vel­op­ment has been dis­man­tled.

A new work­ing group has been es­tab­lished and ex­ist­ing mem­bers have been in­vited to cross over.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Craig Hobbs said the Business As­so­ci­a­tion will nom­i­nate three mem­bers to sit on the group.

‘‘Be­cause they are a group they hold no for­mal power. It al­lows them to pro­vide ad­vice and in­for­ma­tion to coun­cil.’’

Coun­cil voted on the change which will see the group sit on the sub­mis­sion process on May 23.

Mayor Neil Sin­clair said the group will not be part of the de­ci­sion process.
