Boskabelle redevelop Little France manse
January 12 2009
The development is sited on the derelict Edmonstone estate in Little France, adjacent to a planned private hospital from Allan Murray architects.
Amenity is to be created by opening up woodland walks and enhancing former gardens of the estate by restoring stone dykes, gateways, lodges, ha-ha structures and a stable block.
Go ahead for the scheme is expected to be given by councillors and ministers despite concerns over encroachment upon the green belt.
Edinburgh’s ageing population has been cited as a factor weighing in the schemes favour. Statisticians project a 57% increase in the number of older people requiring intensive care over the next decade, as the number of people over 65 increase by 13%.
