Consultation launched for Edinburgh’s Garden District
January 15 2014
Edinburgh’s Garden District has been drawn up by lead master planner DPZ, with assistance from Michael Laird Architects and Gillespies, on behalf of Murray Estates and incorporates a 60 acre National Garden at its heart alongside schools, a conference centre, hotel and possible sports hub.
Murray Estates MD Jestyn Davies commented: “The start of this public consultation period is an important stage in bringing forward the proposals for the Garden District.
“The time has come for a serious debate on the future of Edinburgh’s growth, with the Garden District providing a unique way to create new and sustainable communities, whilst taking significant pressure off existing communities as Edinburgh seeks to meet its significant housing shortage.”
The consultation follows recent criticism from Malcolm Fraser that the project is being built in the ‘wrong place’, whilst locals remain concerned about any adverse impact on traffic.
