Austin-Smith:Lord submit Edinburgh regeneration masterplan
Austin-Smith:Lord on behalf of the City of Edinburgh Council have submitted masterplan proposals for the redevelopment of a 11.4 hectare site in the Pennywell and Muirhouse area of north west Edinburgh.

Significant demolition of existing substandard housing stock has cleared the way for a new east west spine providing pedestrian linkage across the site, composed of a series of urban blocks.

These delineate public open space from enclosed private space at heart of each.

To achieve this a twin pronged attack of place-mending and place-making will be implemented, healing the existing fractured landscape with new insertions, principally around the Pennywell Arcade and new build.

Developed as part of ECC’s 21st Century Homes initiative, which aims to create 500 new homes in the area, the scheme is intended to arrest decline in the area.
