Cruden / Barratt Design Detail Consultation

Property developers Cruden Homes and Barratt Homes have published more design details for the housing they are proposing for the Baileyfield site.

Cruden Homes are to seek design approval for a single block of 52 affordable housing units on Fishwives Causeway. The flats will be 1 and 2-bedroom and a mix of tenures offered through Port of Leith Housing Association

Barratt Homes have drawn up design proposals for 105 units, a mixture of flats, town houses and colony style houses.

Since planning permission has already been given in principle, both developers will shortly be seeking approval for the details of the design, the landscaping, car and cycle parking, and the materials proposed.
