Residents of Queensferry will be able to have their say about proposals to build over 700 homes on Builyeon Road at two public consultation events.

The meetings are to be held in Echline Primary School on Friday, October 2, at 4pm to 8pm and Saturday, October 3, at 9am to 1pm where the draft proposals for the site will be presented on a series of exhibition boards.

The draft proposals include consideration of the views and comments made by members of the South Queensferry community at the recent ‘Queensferry Placemaking Exercise’ held in Queensferry High School last month.

Edinburgh councillors gave the green light to a maximum of 30,000 new homes to be built across the city which include plans for up to 1500 properties being built on land south of Builyeon Road, South Scotstoun and Dalmeny.

The upcoming public consultation events will be manned by members of the applicant’s planning and architectural teams who will be available to answer questions from members of the public.

They will also be able to provide any additional information or clarification that may be sought by members of the public.
