Planning Update – June 2021

Leith Walk Plans Get Planning Green Light



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.


Drum will now replace the existing industrial units with 148 high-quality apartments, including 38 affordable homes, as part of an attractive landscaped residential scheme linking to Pilrig Park and beyond. The sandstone building will be retained and refurbished and made available for commercial occupation, providing a vibrant local retail and business frontage onto Leith Walk
