Consultation begins into residential-led development at Seafield
Developers behind proposals for a residential-led development at Edinburgh’s Seafield Road are to give the public a chance to have their say.
Manse (Seafield) LLP will be holding a web-based, digital consultation for the mixed-use development at the site of the current Peter Vardy Vauxhall Garage along with neighbouring Arnold Clark and Buccleuch Property sites.
The wider Seafield area, of which this forms part, is allocated for residential development in City of Edinburgh Council’s Choices for City Plan 2030. This is the first stage in the development of the Local Development Plan, which guides future development in the city.
Manse (Seafield) LLP has now submitted a Proposal of Application Notice (PAN), which signals the intent to submit a planning application following the consultation with the council.
Full details about the proposals will be made available to the public at 9am on January 28 on the dedicated project website.
An online consultation will take place between 3pm and 7pm. Consultants will be available during those hours to answer any questions and receive feedback through a two-way chat system. Feedback can also be submitted via the website and information will be made available in paper format, if requested.
Any representations or suggestions for changes to the proposals shared during the online event will be included in a Pre-Application Consultation report to accompany future applications.
Manse will work with the City of Edinburgh Council, Craigentinny and Meadowbank Community Council, and other stakeholders, to ensure the delivery of this new, exciting community quarter in line with the aspirations of the emerging Local Development Plan.
Commenting on this, Colin MacPherson from Manse LLP said: “We’re thrilled to be giving the public the chance to have a say on the future of Seafield.
“These proposals will greatly assist in the regeneration of this part of the city, and we are consulting extensively to ensure that that the public have an opportunity to input their views and help us shape our ambitious proposals.”
