Fountainbridge Development Brief Draft

Memorandum from Edinburgh City Council

With the formal opening of the Millennium Link in May 2002 the emphasis has now moved onto maximising the potential of the asset in local economic development/regeneration terms for local communities.

A planning workshop was held on 2nd April 2004 in the Council Business Centre as part of the process of preparing a development brief for the Fountainbridge area. The event was organised by the Council in association with Scottish & Newcastle’s consultants GVA Grimley and Allan Murray Architects. The meeting was well attended by a wide range of interests, including local members, local residents and community organisations, private developers, MSPs, local landowners (including British Waterways), Historic Scotland and amenity bodies.
