Stead's Place

Planning Update

Drum (Steads Place) Ltd and CAMVO 123 Ltd has submitted a Proposal of Application Notice (PAN) to the City of Edinburgh Council for the redevelopment of the 2.9-acre Stead’s Place site, near the foot of Leith Walk.

Two online consultations have now taken place: the first in July 2020, and a follow-up event in November. Many thanks to everyone who viewed both exhibitions and took time to send us their views, questions and opinions.

The deadline for completing and returning a feedback questionnaire for the second event has now expired. All feedback will now contribute to our planning application which is likely to be submitted to the City of Edinburgh Council before the end of December 2020.

Pan Context

The 2.9-acre Stead’s Place site has been earmarked for development by the City of Edinburgh Council since 2008 and consists largely of an aged industrial estate and office space together with a two-storey sandstone building facing directly on to Leith Walk.

As part of the proposed redevelopment outlined in the PAN, the sandstone building will be retained and refurbished and made available for a range of commercial uses. The existing industrial units located directly behind Leith Walk are to be demolished and replaced with a new homes-led landscaped development linking to Pilrig Park and beyond.
