NEWCRAIGHALL EAST, EDINBURGH
Our new housing development with 163 homes allocated for affordable homes has been approved, subject to conditions, by councillors on the City of Edinburgh Council’s development management sub-committee.
The site will see 220 mixed-residential units brought to the area, located east of Glennie Road.
Flats, colony flats, and townhouses are included in the ambitious plans, with 163 (74%) of the units being for affordable housing on behalf of Hillcrest Homes. The remainder being for private housing.
The proposed development is allocated as housing site HSG27 in the council’s Local Development Plan, where residential development is acceptable in principle.
It also delivers a 20-minute neighbourhood, being within 10 minutes of a school, open place, play parks and a railway station, as well as a number of active travel connections. The site is within a 20-minute walk of Fort Kinnaird Retail Park and Queen Margaret University.
Twenty-minute neighbourhoods are places that are designed so residents can meet their day-to-day needs within a 20-minute walk of their homes.
The proposals include education and healthcare contributions to mitigate its impact on the locality.
