Development on the RBS site on Dundas Street and Fettes Row – Response to Latest Consultation

The New Town & Broughton Community Council have been actively following the plans being put forward on behalf of The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) for the redevelopment of the land in its ownership bordering Dundas Street, Fettes Row, Royal Crescent and Eyre Terrace.

We submitted comments on the previous Public Exhibitions held in September and November 2015 by GVA James Barr & the architects Michael Laird Associates. These comments were a consensus of the views expressed by various local residents’ associations as well as discussions within NTBCC.

NTBCC attended the Final Public Exhibition in February 2016 – the Exhibition Boards used can be seen here.

We believe that the proposed site, given its size, central location and adjoining the precious open space of King George V Park within the New Town, offers a unique opportunity to add real value to the area. As such, NTBCC are not against development in some form for the majority of the site – replacing buildings that have little or no architectural merit, bordering the Edinburgh World Heritage site and within the New Town Conservation Area.

Overall, NTBCC’s position (reflecting both the changes introduced in the latest consultation in February and the many representations from members of the local community) results in the New Town & Broughton Community Council being against several key elements of the proposed development.

Our latest comments can be viewed here.
