  • What's proposed

    What's proposed?

    We will deliver new housing, landscaping, roads infrastructure and services.  Our development design outlines a mixture of detached, semi-detached, terraced homes, as well as three and four storey apartment blocks.

    The development will also integrate a dedicated pedestrian and cycle link from the National Cycle Network in the east through the site to the west.  There will also be local transport improvements to ensure the site is well-integrated into the local transport network, with specific local improvements to be agreed with City of Edinburgh Council.

    Pedestrian and vehicle access to the site from both the B800 and Provost Milne Grove is proposed, which will enable greater access to local cycle and pedestrian routes, including the historic 'Dark Entries' tree-lined avenue.
