Decision next Wednesday on 10 new houses for East Suffolk Road

The fate of the old East Suffolk Road playing fields will be decided at a meeting on Wednesday next week.

When the matter came before the Edinburgh Planning Committee on 7th October, the decision was deferred until next Wednesday 18th November (10am at the City Chambers) when a hearing allowing all interested parties and groups to be represented.

The proposals involve
Erection of 10 dwelling houses, creation of public park, new vehicle and pedestrian access, relocation of existing pavilion, alteration to existing boundary wall on East Suffolk Road and associated landscaping, drainage and engineering works on land at East Suffolk Road. Application No 14/03632/FUL  Click here to see documents.  There is also a listed building consent application for the moving of the Category C listed pavilion.
I note that the proposals are recommended for approval by planning officers.

Correction 1415 13/11/15:  Title amended to to correct the date of the hearing.  Apologies for the error which suggested the Planning Committee would be meeting on a Saturday on a Saturday!
