Public consultation opens into Fountainbridge regeneration plan
Public views are being sought on the proposed regeneration of the former brewery site at the Union Canal in Fountainbridge, Edinburgh.
Cruden Homes (East) and bid partner Buccleuch Property were last year confirmed as preferred developers to carry out the landmark project, that will include 464 new homes, including a minimum of 150 new affordable homes and community growing space.
In addition to the residential element, the site will include shops, social enterprise, and community spaces with high quality public realm provision. It will also feature a 100,000 square foot office building which will provide space for early-stage tech companies to ‘scale up’.
This represents the first phase of the delivery of the consented Planning Permission in Principle (PPP) for the site.
Cruden Homes and Buccleuch Property will work with partners 7N Architects, Etive Consulting Engineers, and environmental design consultants, Atelier Ten on the development.
Following a consultation event held last night, feedback from the online consultation will be considered before the full planning application is lodged at the end of July.
