** UPDATE** THE APPLICATION HAS BEEN RE-LODGED - FURTHER OBJECTIONS ARE REQUIRED TO STOP DEVELOPMENT BEING GRANTED CONSENT!!
Glencairn Properties are proposing to develop residential units in a section of open land space, designated by Edinburgh Council as green belt and great landscape value.
Any development on this land would set a dangerous precedent in Edinburgh, and more specifically within the area of The Braids, and could signal further development within green belt and protected areas within Edinburgh.
Due to this the local community is strongly opposing any such development.
The area of land is currently used by children at the Montessori Arts School as an outdoor play area and learning facility, which would be lost as part of the proposed development.
In order to ensure that this application is refused please ensure that you share this petition with as many people as possible. The stronger the support, the stronger the voice the local community will have in ensuring this and future applications are refused.
The developer has finally lodged their planning application for the proposed housing units, the application and plans can be viewed on the below link. Crucially this is also where we must lodge objections with the Council to ensure that the opinions of the local community are heard.
Whilst notices of support on this petition are greatly welcomed formal objections via the planning portal and letters of objection to local councillors, MSPs and MP will be crucial in pushing the application towards refusal. Any such correspondence will be greatly appreciated by all who oppose this development.
Your support is greatly appreciated.
We, the undersigned, call on Edinburgh City Council to refuse planning consent for the proposed development of residential units at Liberton Tower Mains.
