Planning Update – June 2021

Drum Property Group’s Leith Walk Proposals Get Planning Green Light

148 New Apartments and Refurbishment of Retail Building Set to Bring ‘Much Needed Investment’ to Leith Walk Site

Drum Property Group’s vision for the long-awaited redevelopment of a key site on Leith Walk is to become a reality following the granting of planning consent.

Drum’s ambitious proposals for Stead’s Place, near the foot of Leith Walk, were approved by the City of Edinburgh Council on Wednesday (June 2), heralding a major regeneration of the 2.9-acre site bringing much-needed investment and interest to this important part of the city centre.

The Stead’s Place site has been earmarked for development by the 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.
