South Scotstoun South Queensferry

South Scotstoun - South Queensferry - Edinburgh - City of Edinburgh - EH30 9YD

Our proposals aim to provide a range of 2,3,4 and 5 bedroom homes, as well as 1 and 2 bedroom apartments on an attractive greenfield site in South Queensferry. Subject to planning being granted we hope to begin work on-site in 2017.

  • Overview

    We are preparing proposals for a new development of approximately 470 high-quality detached, semi-detached, terraced homes and apartments on land adjacent to the A90, South Scotstoun, South Queensferry.  The site we are proposing for our new development is outlined in red on the map pictured right. The blue boundary outlines land that may be subject to future development. 

     Under our proposals, we would provide a mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments with off-street parking and landscaped gardens. A proportion of the new properties would be made available as affordable homes for local people in housing need. We also intend to provide a mixture of detached, semi-detached and terraced homes on our development.

  • About the site

    This is a greenfield site, historically known as the Dark Entries to the south of South Queensferry. It incorporates part of the national cycle network and it retains historical landscape features. Main access to be taken from B800 Kirkliston Road with secondary access from Provost Milne Grove.

  • What's proposed

    We are proposing new housing, landscaping, roads infrastructure and services.  Our development proposal outlines a mixture of detached, semi-detached,  and terraced homes, as well as three and four storey apartment blocks.  The proposed development will enable links to the west of the site with the provision of vehicle access and a cycle/pedestrian path.

    We would also look to enable improvements to the B800 that will encourage B800 improvements to become integrated as part of Queensferry, and not just a strategic route that it once was. Strategic pedestrian and vehicular access from Provost Milne Grove has been considered to allow neighbouring developments access to local features such as Scotstoun Avenue woodland trail.

    Key elements of the proposed development are as follows:

    •  2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom properties

    •  Proportion of affordable homes

    •  Connected foot and cycle network

    •  Strategic pedestrian and vehicular access from Provost Milne Grove
    •  B800 improvements

    •  Access to Scotstoun Woodland Trail

    •  Use green space to link existing spaces with new spaces to create connected and integrated communities

    We are continuing to work on our detailed development designs, and we intend to have a further community consultation event to share our finalised development layout ahead of submitting our planning application later this year.  Our community consultation event is likely to take place after the school summer holidays to ensure that we can maximise the participation of as many of the local community as is possible.

    We have received feedback from the City of Edinburgh Council's Urban Design Panel on our proposed development layout and we are now in the process of incorporating this feedback into our development designs.  We intend to have a further community consultation event to share our finalised development layout ahead of submitting our planning application in the summer.
