St Margaret's School future unfolds

St Margaret's in former times
Of three uses under consideration for future use of the former St Margaret's School, one was approved today by the Council Planning Committee and one was deferred for a site visit.
  1. Care home:  The proposal to create a 60 bed care home from the properties on the north side of East Suffolk Road is to be subject of a site visit tomorrow by the Planning Committee and is expected to come back for a decision on 14th September.  The plans can be found here (11/02170).
  2. Nursery with two flats: The proposal to create two flats in the building on the south east side of East Suffolk Road and use the majority of the remaining part of the building as a nursery was approved today.  The plans can be seen here (11/02170).
  3. Cultural Centre: The former Craigmillar Free Church building, also in East Suffolk Road, is already occupied and being used as a Muslim cultural centre known as the Iqra Academy.
