IMPORTANT plans for the future supply of homes in Edinburgh have been given the go-ahead by Councillors at a hearing yesterday (22 MAY 2019).
The 655-home development at Cammo Estate is a consortium project by CALA Homes and David Wilson Homes and includes 164 much-needed affordable homes.
A spokesperson on behalf of the consortium, said: “We must thank the local community first and foremost for engaging with us throughout, helping us to shape the final proposals which have evolved over the past two years.
“We fully understand how important the junctions at Maybury and Barnton are – and traffic was a key concern for many people at the outset. We feel the improvements here will benefit the wider community and those commuting in or out the city.”
A key component of the site is the extent of publicly accessible green space – which totals one third of the entire development and includes linear parks, a seven-hectare park (equivalent to 11 football pitches). In addition, a half kilometre 20-metre wide green corridor at Maybury Avenue will feature a much-needed cycle and footpath detached from Maybury Road.
The spokesperson added: “At the heart of the design solution has been the delivery of an outstanding landscape environment along with significant investment to improve public transport, education and health care and the delivery of an excellent pedestrian and cycle network.
“In addition, there is an exceptionally wide range of homes that will help to ease the supply shortfall that features throughout the market.”
The development will provide a unique mix of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, terraced homes, colonies as well as detached family homes.
As part of the 655 homes, 25% of the development units will be of affordable tenure; comprising a wide range of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments and terraced homes.
