Recent success for 35 acre site in Balerno

Oct 22, 2015


Gladman Scotland, on behalf of the landowners, has successfully promoted a 35 acre site in Balerno for residential development that will provide much needed new homes in Edinburgh.

An application for planning permission in principle was submitted to City of Edinburgh Council in July 2014, comprising a scheme of 120 new family homes (25% aff­ordable), set within a layout of public open space and pathways, enhanced recreation provision for the community and generous landscape planting.

Following the Council’s decision to refuse planning permission for the development in November 2014, an appeal to Scottish Ministers was lodged by Gladman in January 2015 addressing the reasons for refusal through written submissions. Scottish Ministers issued a Notice of Intention to allow the appeal and grant planning permission in July 2015, subject to a legal agreement to secure developer contributions in respect of education infrastructure, transport interventions and to ensure the delivery of aff­ordable housing.

It is anticipated the site will be marketed in late 2015, and development is due to start mid to late 2016.
