154 McDonald Road (‘Kingsford Residence: McDonald Road | Luxury Apartments for Rent’)

In March 2018, Leith Central Community Council agreed to ask City of Edinburgh Council to answer concerns that have arisen from the sale, planning process and subsequent handling of the former Broughton High School building in McDonald Road.
