GORGIE RESIDENTS INVITED TO PUBLIC EVENT

A public event will be held on Thursday 24 January at Gorgie Dalry Stenhouse Church of Scotland from 2pm to 6.30pm to see revised plans for the proposed redevelopment of the existing Scotmid store at 236 Gorgie Road, Edinburgh.

Together with Scotmid Co-operative, we have revised plans to build a new state-of-the art store with student accommodation, which will be managed by our in-house team, BOHO.

Revisions include further consideration to the existing buildings and a reduction in the number of student accommodation to 121 bedspaces as well as 100% cycle provision.

We hope the investment of £15million will be welcomed by the community and we continue to want to hear from locals and to show the altered designs at the event.

Head of Property, Development and Facilities Maurissa Fergusson at Scotmid Co-operative said: “Our aim is to be to bring a sizeable investment to the area and rejuvenate our store with a new state-of-the-art refurbishment for the benefit of the local community. We continue to seek the views of locals and will engage with them every step of the way throughout this process.

“We’re proud to be at the heart of the Gorgie community which we have served for nearly 160 years. We hope to bring a new modern store that the area can be proud of as well as providing a catalyst for investment in the area.”
