    The building that currently houses the Scottish Law Commission (SLC) at 140 Causewayside is being marketed as a development opportunity.  This brochure describes the potential and includes this video of the site.  The site is to the north of the Tesco Express, on the west side of the street.

     

    The brochure states that SLC will remain in occupation until Summer 2023 and notes:

     

    “This site is not allocated for any specific use within Edinburgh’s Local Development Plan and it is likely to be suitable for Residential use, Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA)
    or Build to Rent (BTR) and planning permission will be required. Any proposed development scheme should be respectful of the location setting, the character and appearance of the
    adjacent Conservation Area and the scale of buildings in the surrounding area”

     

    Although the properties to the north and west of the site lie within the Grange Conservation Area, the site itself is not in any conservation area and so permission would not be required for demolition of the buildings.  Planning permission will be required for any redevelopment of the site.  The brochure notes:

     

    “Avison Young’s planning team have engaged with City of Edinburgh Council (CEC) on an informal pre-application basis to review potential redevelopment potential for the site. [….] in summary, the following development would [be likely to be] supported by the CEC’s Planning Department:

    Purpose Built Student Accommodation:
    131 beds in a mix of studio (71 beds) and cluster apartments (60 beds).

    Residential development for private sale:
    32 apartments in a mix of one, two and three-bedroom flats.

    Residential development for Built to Rent.

    Scale:
    New five storey building”
