Edinburgh’s Western Harbour secures council backing
October 11 2018
Edinburgh City Council has given its consent to a revised design framework for 1,600 homes at Western Harbour in Leith.
Their backing clears the way for Forth Ports to deliver a masterplan prepared by RankinFraser and 7N Architects which will also include a park, primary school, shops and waterfront promenade.
Charles Hammond, Forth Ports group chief executive, said: “Forth Ports and Rettie & Co. have been working together for over two years on these proposals that will result in the delivery of a community of 1600 mid-market rental home and park which should also create the setting for the new primary school for the area.
“Work is well underway preparing a full planning application in readiness for submission before the end of February 2019.”
Construction is expected to get underway by late 2019 with occupation of the first properties anticipated by 2020/21.
