edinburgh garden district


The masterplan for Edinburgh Garden District was informed by the existing topography of the site, its landscape setting and its proximity to the A720 / Edinburgh City Bypass. The strategy is appropriate for an edge of settlement neighbourhood and provides a new defensible urban edge for Edinburgh.

The development framework proposes that the buildings located along the bypass corridor in the east reflect the scale of the buildings within Edinburgh Park to help mitigate noise issues associated with the road. The massing and density of the new neighbourhood then decreases away from the bypass creating an appropriate edge along the boundary with the historic estate in the west.

The proposals include the potential for a new school, neighbourhood centre, new park along the re-routed burn corridor and up to 1350 new dwellings.

The development was granted planning permission in 2017.
