Revised Proposals For 14 Bath Street, George (2021)

Posted on: January 29th, 2021

UPDATE: Portobello Community Council submitted an objection to this planning application.

The owners of 14 Bath Street – the listed former bingo hall and George Cinema – have submitted a new planning application. This follows previous refusals by the City of Edinburgh Council and on appeal to the Scottish Planning Reporter. The proposal is available using references 20/05800/FUL and 20-05799/LBC on the City of Edinburgh Council Planning Portal.

In summary the proposal is: “Demolition of auditorium and retention and partial restoration of principal external elements of the Art Deco facade, erection of 21 residential flats with associated car parking and landscaping”. The major change from previous applications is a new structural report. Using the links above you can see full elevation plans, floor plans, details of demolitions, design & access statement, visualisations and the structural investigation report. You can also submit your own personal response to the planning application.

Portobello Community Council would like to gather views from the larger community on these plans, to inform our response to the application.
