Finalised New Brunstane master plan to go on show
May 11 2016
New Brunstane has been drawn up by urban design and architecture practice Area to deliver up to 1,330 homes, retail and a primary school amidst parkland on 49 hectares of land around the historic Brunstane House.
Key design principles enshrine protection of key views to the House and Arthur’s Seat together with the adoption of landscape corridors and creation of a visual and acoustic buffer to mitigate the impact of the East Coast Main Line.
It is the latest in a series of large scale housing proposals for the periphery of the city, as it battles to meet rising demand for accommodation.
The master plan notes: “The housing would be at a variety of densities and scales with denser urban forms along the main walking and cycle routes, the parks and public gardens such that there are more people around and these will become well-used, attractive and safer places day and night.
“Medium and lower density housing would flow from centre to the open landscape edges where the majority of detached and larger
family homes would be located.”
The event will take place on 18 May at the Kings Manor Hotel between 15:00 and 20:00.
