Following continued consultation with the City of Edinburgh Council, Crosswind Developments has submitted a new Proposal of Application Notice (PAN) in respect of their Elements Edinburgh site.
With it’s key-stone position, the 65-acre brownfield site adjacent to Edinburgh Airport and Edinburgh Gateway Station holds strategic importance in the development of West Edinburgh. The vision for Elements Edinburgh is aligned to the City of Edinburgh Council’s new and emerging planning policies (City Plan 2030) and presents an ambitious vision for a new sustainable, 20-minute, car-lite neighbourhood.
John Watson, chief executive of Crosswind said ‘We’re optimistic as we take constructive steps towards deciding whether we make a second application for the Elements Edinburgh site. The adoption of National Planning Framework 4 (NPF4) and the advancement of Edinburgh City Plan 2030 have both contributed to a changing planning landscape which paves the way for development on the site.
We look forward to continuing to work closely with the City of Edinburgh Council to create a plan that meets their needs and ours, we’re also to committed to working collaboratively with our neighbours in West Edinburgh to ensure a co-ordinated urban expansion.’
A public consultation begins next month with an exhibition of proposals for the site at the Gyle Shopping Centre on 4 and 25 October.
