8 Implementation

  • 8.1Unlike the Fountainbridge Brief, where major redevelopment is proposed on the site of the Scottish & Newcastle Brewery, there are limited development proposals currently anticipated in the Tollcross area. The brief seeks to highlight the potential for improvement that exists in the area and provide a framework to guide the assessment of planning applications and encourage investment from various sources, including developer contributions.

  • 8.2Future proposals in the area will be required to demonstrate how they will contribute to meeting the overall objectives of the brief. There may also be an opportunity for development proposals on sites adjacent to the West Tollcross area to assist in the implementation of the brief and the West Tollcross Public Realm Strategy.

  • 8.2With a number of land ownerships, including the Council's own interests, progress in meeting the brief's objectives is likely to require the active intervention of the Council in land acquisition.
