LHNCC’s submission about Stead’s Place proposed development

(You may well know that CEC refused the relevant planning applications. However, that may not be the end of the story because the developer may appeal against this decision. Watch this space!)

CEC Development Management Sub-Committee: hearing on 30 January 2019

Grounds for Objection:  Ref: 18/04332/FUL & Ref: 10/04349/CON, 106-162 Leith Walk

I am here on behalf of LHNCC and the community we serve and thank you for giving me this opportunity to speak on their behalf. Our CC encompasses a large area that includes Great Junction Street, Newkirkgate, Foot of The Walk and West side of Leith Walk to Number 92 all within the Leith Conservation Area and contribute to the ‘Heart of Leith’. We are passionate about the history, heritage, people and the Community we represent. We work closely with, and are adjacent to, LCCC and LLCC who are also here today representing their communities.

The mix, style and proportions are unique to this section of Leith Walk. Examples include The Arches in Manderston Street and the Art Deco Building that is at risk of being demolished in this Planning Application, and the majestic Columns that supported the Railway Bridge on the corner of Leith Walk and Jane Street.
