Salamamder St: online consultation

The consultation web-page is at https://salamanderstreet.scot. In brief, it says

Landowner John G Russell (Transport) Ltd is seeking your views about their proposals to redevelop land at Salamander St/Bath Road. Your feedback will inform our future planning application.

This website provides details of the proposed new residential-led, mixed-use redevelopment. 

The site represents an exciting opportunity to enhance the townscape of Leith through the delivery of high-quality new housing in a location which is identified for residential-led regeneration.

Please take the opportunity to review and submit any feedback you may have to the team.

Information and exhibition boards will be available on this site from 8 October. They will then be available for comment until Thursday 29  October.

Those unable to access the information on this site, or consultation boards and feedback form online, or who have questions, can call 0131 202 3259 or email: hello@salamanderstreet.scot

Piling on Salamander Street (adjacent to Bath Road) Monday 19th October

Barratt East Scotland will commence piling on Salamander Street adjacent to Bath Road on Monday 19th October.

The piling will take approximately one month on this first visit, but could finish up to a couple of weeks over depending on ground conditions. BES will have vibration monitors along the perimeter of the development during these works to protect local home owners, and ourselves.

If there are any questions pertaining to this please let me know.

Thanks

Regards
