Plans unveiled for Edinburgh residential and commercial development

Barratt and David Wilson Homes and Trustees of The Catchelraw Trust have proposed to build hundreds of new homes in Edinburgh.

Under the plans, designed by ema architects, land south of Frogston Road East will host a residential and commercial development.

The developers said: “Two previous consultations have been held for this proposal. Following the previous consultation, we have reviewed feedback received and have been continuing pre-application engagement with City of Edinburgh Council, resulting in a number of changes to the proposal.

“Following the last public consultation event, and subsequent consultation with the council, a number of updates and amendments have been made to the proposal.”

These include increased active travel routes through the site, connecting to the wider existing street network, relocation of commercial uses set within a community hub, including dedicated segregated routes for walking and cycling through green spaces.

The development is also to include a new mobility hub, retail and commercial space.

The mobility hub will offer a range of services including “co-location of public transport, incorporating car club spaces, provision of clear and visible travel information, bike storage and parking, electric vehicle charging and taxi facilities”.

An application for planning in principle is expected by the spring.
