Every week the City of Edinburgh Council publishes a list of planning applications and decisions. We always examine the list carefully for anything in the Southside area that we think should be commented on.
Some applications are very good, like the work to restore the former Odeon Cinema on Clerk Street, and we then write in support of the application. Other applications raise concerns and we will write and oppose the application, or suggest some modification of the plans.
Sometimes we have the opportunity to meet developers in a pre application process, and can offer comments on what they are proposing based on our local knowledge and what we think is needed in the area.
If you have any planning issues you would like us to take up, please let us know.
