Residents in Queensferry are being urged to attend an important meeting in the town next week to discuss future housing
plans for the area.
The City of Edinburgh Council is staging a drop-in session at the Rosebery Hall on Tuesday, August 26, between 3.30 and 6.45pm to discuss the latest draft of the Local Development Plan (LDP).
The LDP has set out that up to 1500 homes need to built in the area to meet demand for housing citywide over the next 10 years.
This is in addition to 1000 properties already proposed for the town at various locations.
Community leaders state the town is already at saturation point and any more housing would have a serious impact on the quality of life for local residents.
And local architect Wil Tunnell is also concerned adding: ‘‘This is a massively significant proposal for Queensferry with vast numbers of houses proposed.
‘‘This is a very important opportunity for people in Queensferry to make representation on the latest draft of the Local Development Plan.’’
