Developing the Seafield waterfront – how do we see the future?

City of Edinburgh Council proposes to allocate a large area of Seafield as “housing led mixed use development” in the next Local Development Plan. Whilst no specific development plans have yet come forward, it is already clear that changes are coming fast, as some car dealers prepare to close and some land sales have taken place.
What do local people think? Use this short survey to have your say.

The Seafield site is not in ‘our’ area  (The Leith Links CC boundary lies at the sewage works and Seafield Street (the edge of the old Eastern General Hospital site), but immediately adjoins it. Changes and new development in this waterfront area would be likely to have a major impact on our area, and indeed on the whole of North East Edinburgh.

Do we want to sit back and watch what happens, as multiple different developers rush to grab a bit of this potentially profitable site?  Or do we want to see a coordinated approach so that all developers are required to adhere to a set of principles laid down by the local community and the council, working together?

Leith Links Community Council is seeking your views on whether community councils and other groups in the area should be seeking to make proactive moves to shape planning development at Seafield.

Please use this very short survey to say what you think.
