Comment on the Stead’s Place planning application

Local residents have just over two weeks to read through and comment on the large planning applications published by the Drum Property Group for 156, 158B, 160 and 162 Leith Walk, Edinburgh (EH6 5DX). The application closes on 7th September 2018.

The application refers to the site across from the former Tram Depot on Leith Walk which stretches to the east-end of Pilrig Park and Springfield. People in the area are encouraged to comment on the plans which include a hotel, student accomodation, affordable housing, restaraunts and a live music venue.

Please be advised there are two applications that need commented on seperately;

  • 18/04349/CON – The application to demolish buildings within the Pilrig Conservation Area
  • 18/04332/FUL – The application to erect new buildings

Note you can comment to either support or oppose the plans, and comments will be brought to the City of Edinburgh Council’s Planning Committee.

Leith Central Community Council are currently looking in-depth at the 170 documents and will publicly comment before the closure date.
