CEC Housing Revival
The City of Edinburgh Council yesterday unveiled the sites across the city which they hope will provide up to 600 new homes as part of a joint initiative to revive mothballed developments. The council is to borrow £55 million to help buy up flats on "ghost estates", where development has stalled because of the recession. The joint initiative involving the city council, the Scottish Government, Scottish Futures Trust and private developers is expected to involve four firms on five sites in Craigmillar, Leith, Granton and Lochend. The scheme, part of the Government’s National Housing Trust (NHT), will see the council lend two-thirds of building costs, with the remainder coming from the private firm.

The sites are:

• Lochend North (developer: Places for People); part of the wider Lochend Butterfly redevelopment behind Easter Road and Meadowbank

• Waterfront Avenue, Granton, known as Madelvic 8 (developer: Places for People); part of the Granton Waterfront Regeneration area

• Telford North (developer: Miller Homes); the former Telford College northern campus located on the edge of Granton and North Fettes

• Salamander Place (developer: Hillcrest Housing Association and Teague Homes); part of the former Whyte & Mackay bottling plant, off Salamander Street, Leith

• Niddrie Mains Road (developer: New City Vision);
