  • Overview

    Overview

    Our site forms part of the wider HSG19 site as allocated for residential development in The City of Edinburgh Council’s Second Local Development Plan.  The LDP allocates the wider site for 1700-2000 new homes. 

    We submitted an application for Planning Permission in Principle for the site in September 2014.  The application was for a residential development of up to 250 new homes together with associated landscaping, open space and access.  Whilst our application was recommended for approval by Council Planning and Transportation Officers, the application was refused by Elected Members at their Committee in April 2015 as they considered that it was premature in advance of the emerging Local Development Plan.

    We have now submitted a new Planning Permission in Principle application for the site.  As the site is now allocated in the Local Development Plan, the Council will not consider it to be premature.

  • What's proposed

    What's proposed?

    Our proposals for the site are broadly similar to our last application although we have amended some elements of design within our masterplan to accommodate comments received from the Council’s Planning and Transportation Officials during the determination of our last application.  The masterplan is wholly compliant with the design principles applicable to our site as set out in the Local Development Plan including:

    • a new 30m wide green network link that is to be provided through the site;
    • the entirety of Craigs Road should be widened on the southern edge to facilitate all vehicle movements;
    • development must respect the ridgeline of Craigs Road and elevated slopes within the site
    • provision of new woodland and grassland habitat (30m depth) to create a strong green belt boundary adjoining Craigs Road along the northern edge of the site.
