Second public consultation opens for fourth phase of Granton Waterfront development
A second consultation has launched into a proposed housing development at Granton Waterfront.
A proposal of application notice was submitted to the City of Edinburgh Council in November for the planned Granton Phase 4 development, which will deliver a mix of 146 private and affordable flats, terraces and townhouses on vacant ground to the north of Waterfront Avenue.
EMA Architecture + Design has prepared a consultation exhibition and online event on behalf of Places for People Developments to inform the local community of the proposals ahead of a formal planning application in April.
In a vision statement EMA Architecture + Design wrote: “The proposed development will be medium density, providing circa. 146 new homes on a site with central areas of shared and public open space, private gardens to all ground floor flats and houses and structural planting across the site.
“Frontages have been designed to address key routes and spaces within the proposal. The block pattern provides natural surveillance across all spaces on-site, promoting a sense of safety and enhancing the pedestrian priority, which connects to the street out-with the boundary.”
