RBS Redevelopment – Response by Ediston to The Chronicle’s “Plans threaten our tree-scape”

The New Town & Broughton Community Council (NTBCC) wants to hear views from the community on the current planning applications that have been lodged for the former RBS site. The applications that are open for comment can be viewed on this NTBCC website post.

The community council is a statutory consultee on these applications and, as such, will submit a representation. NTBCC also have an extended deadline for submission of comments to these applications & it will be also be a key agenda item for our meeting on 12 October.

The views of the immediate residents on Fettes Row & Royal Crescent as well as those from the Friends of King George V & Scotland Yard Park (www.kgvsy.org.uk) were posted recently on NTBCC’s website (Plans threaten our tree-scape)  included within The Chronicle’ newsletter which has been distributed to well over 1,000 households in the area.

We would also state that whilst NTBCC may share many of these concerns  – our position & response to these applications should reflect as far as we are able, views covering the wider community & relate to / be cognisant of relevant planning policies.

We have received a response from the developers (Ediston) which discusses many of the points raised. Click the graphic below so see the full PDF.
