Craighouse

Craighouse, the former campus of Napier University on Easter Craiglockart Hill, remains unresolved.

We supported the conversion of the existing buildings to residential use.  We remain unconvinced that there is any need for additional new housing on the site to support the conversion of those buildings.

The site is designated Open Space and an Area of Great Landscape so there would need to be an extraordinary public benefit to justify any new development on the land.

Submission of a planning application has been further delayed but we expect to see something soon.

 

Our objection to the Schedule 3 planning application for enabling development at Craighouse campus was submitted on 4 July 2014  12/04007/SCH3
