82 affordable Wester Hailes homes poised for planning
March 17 2022
Robertson Partnership Homes has hosted a second public consultation event to present its plans for 82 affordable homes on a brownfield site at Murrayburn Gate, Wester Hailes.
A U-plan six-storey apartment block is proposed for the brownfield site, enveloping a central shared green and play area with an active travel route and access road spanning the southern site boundary.
In a consultation statement, EMA wrote: "Contemporary architectural detailing and quality material are proposed to define the character of the regenerated site at Murrayburn Gate. A range of brick colour / tones are suggested with well-proportioned window opening and Juliet balconies to activate the streetscapes.
"A varied roof pitch design is proposed as a reference to traditional roof profiles found within historic Edinburgh tenement designs, with important corners picked out in a contrasting brick tone to define key entrance points into the site."
A full planning application is expected to follow next month.
Thanks for the opportunity to comment or question.
How many/what proportion of the 82 'affordable' dwellings will be for social rent?
A view over sea of car parking isn't a view at all.
