We’re very grateful to Hackland+Dore Architects Limited, from Annandale Street, for supplying us with an early consultation leaflet about the proposed SMARTS development at West Bowling Green Street.
The images in the leaflet that we reproduce here will help to give people an idea of what is proposed for the site.
The developers are looking for comments on their proposals in advance of them putting in a full planning application to the council. You can view a leaflet with more info by clicking here.
You can also find more details about the proposals in this earlier blog post.
What do you think?
You can let them know your thoughts by email. Send them to: email@example.com
If you send in a comment, please do send Greener Leith a copy too: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can meet the developers in person at a public meeting scheduled for 4.30pm-7.30pm on Wednesday the 23rd of November in the Ebeneezer United Free Church at 31, Bangor Road.
We should also congratulate the developers for doing more than the bare minimum in pre-application consultation, and providing and sharing electronic consultation materials.
Other developers should take note. Having already raised the poor quality of some pre-application notice consultation processes that developers make in meetings with council planning officials, Greener Leith committee members have been invited to a consultation on the matter with Scottish Ministers keen to improve on the current system.
