At its meeting on 5 Dec 2013 the City of Edinburgh Council Planning Committee approved in final form supplementary guidance for the Edinburgh BioQuarter and the South East Wedge Parkland. It also approved for consultation a draft masterplan which defines development areas, points of access, principal movement routes, main areas of public realm, lines of principal facades and activation, and key areas of landscape retention. In addition, the masterplan sets out further detail in regards to placemaking, density, building heights, landscape impact, flexibility, transport and connectivity and flooding and drainage.
As part of the public consultation exercise the Council is holding two drop-in consultation events on the draft masterplan on:
· Monday 13 January 2014, 4pm - 8pm at Craigmillar Library, 101 Niddrie Mains Road.
· Wednesday 15 January, 4pm - 8pm at Moredun Library, 92 Moredun Park Road.
This is an opportunity to view the draft masterplan and tell us your views on the planning framework for the Edinburgh BioQuarter and SEW Parkland.
