Planning secured for student accommodation in Haymarket

November 14th 2017

SHP has secured a grant for planning permission for the development of a student accommodation scheme at Haymarket Yards in Edinburgh on behalf of applicant Scape Homes.

After submitting plans in September 2016, SHP worked alongside the project architects to revise plans to address initial design concerns expressed by the City of Edinburgh Council. Following revisions to the scale and bulk of the building, the revised scheme for 94 student units was approved by the Council’s Development Management Sub-Committee in early November subject to a Section 75 legal agreement which was recently concluded. The approval will see a new use for this prominent gap site in one of Edinburgh’s most accessible locations.
