Powderhall Consultation – NTBCC Thoughts and Next Events

As posted earlier in June 2018 ; with operations at the Powderhall Waste Transfer Station having ceased at the end of 2016, Edinburgh Council (& Collective Architecture) held a series of public consultation events  on June 27th & 28th (“Tell us about Powderhall”) for the public and others to give their ideas about the area and future uses to be explored in its redevelopment. Broadly, the initial proposal was for a housing-led redevelopment along with other facilities also being considered e.g.  a nursery, possible sheltered housing as well as some green space.

The Council’s consultation hub https://consultationhub.edinburgh.gov.uk/sfc/powderhall/  gives more background to this.

NTBCC attended these events and responded to the consultation by submitting their initial thoughts on options for the redevelopment, which can be accessed here. 

We are also ware that many local residents as well as representatives from various local community groups have submitted their thoughts.

Council representatives will attend the NTBCC meeting on 13th August with Collective Architecture  presenting the responses and information received from the ‘Tell us about Powderhall’ events.  

We are also aware that the dates for the next stage of public involvement is on the council Consultation hub

28th August between 2-6pm at McDonald Road Library (Nelson Hall)
