Scots housebuilder to host public consultation on new Edinburgh apartments

A SCOTS housebuilder is set to hold a public consultation on its plans for new apartments based in the Scottish capital.

Edinburgh-based Cruden Homes is to hold a digital consultation event on its proposals to deliver what it is calling “much-needed housing” in Leith.

Located on the site of the Edinburgh Carpet and Flooring Warehouse on the corner of Salamander Street and Salamander Yards, the proposed development will aim to comprise 99 apartments.

Including a multitude of different sized apartments, the development will range from four to six storeys, with ground floor retail looking onto Salamander Street.

The apartments are set to be based on the site of the former Edinburgh Carpet and Flooring Warehouse.

A web-based community consultation event, in line with Scottish Government Covid-guidelines, will allow the community to provide feedback on and shape the proposals.

This online public consultation event, where the development team will be available via a live chat function to answer any questions, will take place on Thursday 28th April between 3.30pm and 7.30pm at www.orbitconsultations.scot/salamanderstreet

The event follows extensive engagement locally with key stakeholders.

Commenting on these proposals, Rory Stephens from Cruden Homes said: “We are delighted to be bringing forward these exciting proposals for consultation with the local community.

“This ambitious scheme regenerates the current brownfield site, delivering much-needed sustainable housing, including affordable homes, as well as providing a retail offering on the ground floor.

“We’re keen to hear community views, allowing us to further shape and refine our proposals for the site, and would urge those able to do so to participate.”
