Sheratan to propose 680-home Edinburgh development
Developer Sheratan Ltd has put forward proposals for a new housing development, primary school and parkland at Edmonstone Estate at Little France in Edinburgh.
Sheratan has lodged a proposal of application notice (PAN) for the new development, to be called Edmonstone Home Farm, signifying its intent to lodge a planning application in the future.
The anticipated £7 million development is set to include 680 homes, 25 per cent of which will be affordable housing, as well as a two-stream primary school.
The 170-acre site will be ‘masterplanned’ to maximise the benefits to the area and the rest of the Scottish capital, with Sheratan proposing to retain around 70 per cent of the land as greenspace, including parkland and cycle and pedestrian links.
The developer said the parkland would “create space for recreational opportunities and provide strategic greenspace links, connecting local communities to employment opportunities and connecting developments”.
A spokesman for Sheratan said: “We are delighted to be bringing forward proposals for Edmonstone Home Farm, which will not only deliver much needed housing for the City, but a new primary school and park, which has been a long-term aspiration for the Council.
“This is a non-contentious site, given the very limited local opposition to previous proposals in the area, and we look forward to further meetings with the local community and hearing their feedback as we progress.”
