Edinburgh PR agency lays foundations with positive coverage for revised plans

School's out and media coverage is in at Boroughmuir | Edinburgh PR Agency | CALA Homes

FRESH proposals for the renovation of the derelict former Boroughmuir High School have received a timely boost thanks to media coverage. 

We took the submission of plans as a cue for a positive story about the ambitious plans by our client CALA Homes (East) to transform the old academic building into 87 stunning split-level mezzanine apartments.

Our Edinburgh PR agency’s story set out to highlight the important changes to CALA’s plans following ongoing community engagement.

Highlights included: 

– Entirely positive sentiment achieved across 10 items of coverage

– Crucial page lead feature in the Edinburgh Evening News

– Online feature in the paper with a far-reaching social media update

– A variety of trade press, including housing, construction and architecture news

Ahead of an important planning committee meeting, our coverage further communicates how CALA has listened to the views of residents and incorporated them into impressive plans.
