Plans approved for 139 homes in Edinburgh

Abbey Lane EdinburghThe City of Edinburgh Council has given planning permission for 139 flats to be constructed on brownfield land in the city.

Designed by EMA Architects, the series of four and six storey blocks at Abbey Lane seeks to maximise southerly views toward the Crags and Arthur’s Seat whilst respecting a neighbouring listed building.

A landscape buffer will be included to the south to mitigate the impact of an adjoining railway line, including a mixture of hedges, railings, walls and footpaths.

Bellway Homes hopes to begin construction later this year.
