Support gathered for proposal

Together with Scotmid, we held two public Information Days last week on Tuesday 6 and Wednesday 7 November in Gorgie Road to showcase to residents and local businesses our revised plans for a new state-of-the-art store and managed student accommodation.

Our plans will see an investment of £15million in the area and secure a new partnership with Scotmid. We welcomed the positive response we received from those we spoke to and those who attended our information sessions. Read more in the Edinburgh Evening Reporter.

The refreshed plans received the support of more than 100 local residents and businesses at the two-day event. Changes included a reduction in the amount of student accommodation by almost 10% and a significant reduction in the scale of the development.

The original public consultation took place in March and, following comments from the Edinburgh Urban Design Panel and the Planning Department, we were eager to showcase the updated plans to the local community.

The development will be the first of its kind in Scotmid’s 159-year-history – something that the Society’s Head of Property, Development and Facilities Maurissa Fergusson was keen to share with the local community.

Maurissa said: “It is very important to us at Scotmid and our partners in the development, Structured House Group that we listen, respond and share our revised plans with the local community, residents, the Community Council, local businesses and our staff at Gorgie Road.

“We are encouraged by the response we’ve had and the support of more than 100 voices from the local community to our revised plans. Scotmid has served the local community for more than 150 years and our aim is to continue to do so and bring added investment and benefit to the area.

“Community is at the heart of everything we do and by listening and responding to those we serve, we will continue to engage with everyone throughout this progress as we hope to bring a considerable investment and a new state-of-the-art store to the local community.”

Brian Smith, Operations Director at Structured House Group, added: . We were encouraged to hear from all those who visited us over the two days and to share our plans for the proposed managed apartments and what we hope this can bring to the local area.”
