Murphy back with Haymarket plan B
Richard Murphy Architects are drawing up revised proposals for their controversial Haymarket scheme.

A series of pre-application consultations are currently underway with interested parties which currently show a contentious tower element slashed in height from 17 floors to eight in a bid to shimmy under the hurdle of conservationists.

Tiger Developments had lodged an unsuccessful application in September 2007 for the site, a 200m development which included twin hotels. It was grounded after a Scottish Government inquiry found that it would: “dominate the townscape of Haymarket.”

A revised planning application is expected to be submitted on August 13.
